Almost immediately after I decide to give Flickr another try-out, Picasa goes and announces a revamp of their own site.
I decided to give their facial recognition a try. After visiting my picasa homepage, I clicked on the link suggesting that I try to identify my photos. After a few minutes, I was redirected to a page that listed all the “heads” from all my albums and attempted to group them together. For the most part, it did alright. There were a few boys/girls mixed as one picasa-person, it thought my mom and sister were the same, and it created about 30 different version of me, each with a few headshots.
All-in-all, I’m pretty impressed. I still need to go through and name everyone. Which leads to the inevitable question: should I let Google know what I look like and who I associate with?
