Face Detection Tool Identifies the Exact Position of Person’s Face and allows any user to Tag it. You Might Have Seen This Message Popping in Whenever you View Photos in Orkut Some faces were tagged. Click to name them the Reason is Orkut’s new Feature of Auto Face Detection.

Orkut had the feature of tag a friend before itself. In tag a friend feature, the user had to Manually mark the face of the person. Now Tagging Friends is made easy with this New Face Detection System! By Default, Every Face present in The Image is Tagged And it asks you to Name The Person Present in The Pic (Similar to Picasa). You Can Tag The Image with Your Friends in Orkut. If someone Clicks on the tagged image it will be redirected to to Tagged Person’s Profile. So, More Tagging is equal to More Sharing!
