Face Recognition For Smartphones – Useful or Intrusive?

A company called Viewdle is currently working on new smartphone apps which will utilise face recognition to identify and tag photos of people. The software is designed to be utilised for even faster connectivity in the social media world for sites like Facebook and LinkedIn and gaining instant information about those around you. Another step in the ladder of the digital revolution, one can already tell that there will be contentious privacy issues when ViewdleFaces, ViewdlePlaces and ViewdleGames are released. One can also see how such connectivity can only improve social interaction and foster new relationships.
