How to Stop Social from Using Facial Recognition on You

Social recently introduced a new facial recognition feature that finds pictures with your face and suggests to your friends that they tag you in it. If you’d rather this feature be turned off, it’s easy to disable it… here’s how: Head your Privacy Settings and click on Customize Settings. Scroll down to the “Suggest Photos of Me to Friends” setting and hit “Edit Settings”. In the drop-down on the right, hit “Disable”. It’s as easy as that! So if you’d prefer your friends to have to manually tag you instead of Social automatically suggesting they do it now you can.

How to Stop Social Using Your Picture in Ads

In March 2011 Social started using your photos in ads that will appear on the profile page of your contacts. It is legal and they have it mentioned in the fine print when you create your account. If you’d prefer to stop this, just follow these simple steps: Go to Account, Account Settings, then click on Social Ads (tab), choose “No one” on the drop-down menu and save changes. Now, you’re all set… Social won’t automatically use you to promote ads on your friends pages!
