Flickr Adds Face Tagging
Called ‘People in Photos’, Flickr’s new feature enables you to do face tagging of people in photos, find photos of people you know, and manage which photos you’re in (i.e. opt-out if you are tagged in a photo).
To add someone to a photo, you can either type in the member’s name, much like you’d add a tag, or you can draw a face boundary on the photo, as with a note. People in Photos has been wired into your Recent Activity.- details
An interesting feature and while one would argue that your social network stays at Facebook (and you’d rather do face tagging on Facebook), Flickr does allow searching for Flickr members via email id, ensuring that you are able to get your contacts.
