Google will roll out a new feature in face recognition for photos shared on Google+. It is completely a optional feature.
According to the only figures released by the Mountain View company, Google has over 40 + million users. As can be seen with the recent integration of Google + Circles contact manager in Gmail (Google has made an official announcement about this), Google’s ambition goes beyond the framework of a social network and is an evolution of its services with the application of a social stratum.
Circles of Google+ have the advantage of giving the user immediate control over the data it wants to share. A point that Google seems to be very careful with probably remember the episode of the early Google Buzz – a failure – including a mix of genres with Gmail contacts, which had people talking.
To Google+, Google announced a new feature facial recognition to be deployed in the coming days with precautions taken. The key is that contrary to what Facebook could do (which earned a complaint), Find My Face will not be implemented without the knowledge of the user.
Presented as an easier way to tag photos of yourself and friends, Find My Face has a character entirely optional, but enabled by default. “You have control over the tags that you accept or decline, and you can activate or not the feature in the settings Google +”, explains also the Google engineer Matt Steiner.
Google +, the Google project, should be the alternative to which Facebook has in place a battle for dominance of the Web
Social media is the area where Google has never been able to touch the top of success, but also one in which we periodically try again. With Google +, Google is in its third attempt to create a social network. The first was in 2004, Orkut, after the failed attempt to buy Friendster, the second only last year, Buzz was that he should be based on the users of Gmail. It fell prey to a thousand issues of privacy; including a class action cost $ 8.5 million, before falling into disuse.
With google + you can sign in with your Google Account and offers the same functionality of Facebook to share photos, videos and updates about the personal life. The main difference is that instead of post to everyone, users can group your friends in a circle and interact only with those specific people.
In an attempt to gather together people with similar interests Google + offers functionality that collects news and videos to share. This area allows users to communicate with each other via video in a spontaneous way. In its mobility features, Google + allows you to upload photos from mobile phones and benefits from the geographical position data of Latitude. The mobile instant messaging service known as a group huddle will also be present.

The final release is expected in October, as a tradition for Windows product. The next Windows, which finally seems to embody the vision of Bill Gates to a computer in every office and every home, will have to deal with the loud c computing, where the fiercest expect Apple, Google and Amazon also.

The social network announced that Google made in the business pages will be available in “a few months. In any case sooner than expected (bonus YouTube video). The creation of job profiles on Google More will be possible “for everyone in a few months, at least much earlier than expected.
This is Christian Oestlien, product manager of a very young social network of Google, who announced Friday, July 22 on his profile Google +. This follows the tens of thousands of organizations interested in the offer made earlier this week: Google looking for a dozen companies, associations, NGOs, etc to test its business pages.
So, in order to advance the release date of the feature, other projects will be delayed (no details). Teams search engine has still received many negative comments after the announcement, a key function of the service arriving several months after the consumer version (albeit still in beta).
Criticism that Christian Oestlien thanks and agrees philosophically: “These criticisms are well intentioned and will only serve to make this product better. Meanwhile, company profiles using the tool for creating public account will be mercilessly hunted and exterminated by Google.
