02 November 2021
This is a surprising move for such a data-loving company.

AnonD-909757, 03 Nov 2021I don't know what's Facebook is up to, but they a... moreFacebook is more than what u imagine, my friend. It will know everybody around you all your siblings and probally even has a naked photo of you saved. My guy u can't stop Facebook from lying and trying to stop piling lawsuits in the office. And esp since you value privacy so much (no joke just normal). I bet you don't use fb anyways so yea.

Yeah now that they've trained their powerful face recognition AI they need to make it less obvious they have one. I mean there is just no chance the AI will still run but only give the data to Facebook.

So who did they sell that database to?

P C M, 03 Nov 2021CIA already have had a lot better system since a long time ago.Of course they do. There's no new technology that is not used first by army/agencies and after years by the common people.

Deleted from Facebook. An "independent" 3rd party company will then start data mining Facebook and tag faces for advertiser and NSA

I kinda loved that feature.
It helped me in the past to catch a fake account who used my photo.

No, thanks. You have shut one backdoor and will open another one. If what you said is true, that means you have something more valuable than our faces and are trying to divert us and take something else. Or, you are really trying to get into the right ways and gain our trust. Will know in the coming months.

"Delete" in FB argon means its not accesible by users, but by no way means they actually got rid of it

And we are supposed to believe Facebook??
It's probably a move to prevent some upcoming privacy breaching lawsuit against Facebook.
