BLOGS - July 18 - Face.com has been used to tag over 25 billion faces in 7 billion photos since launching in 2007. Facebook users had been using the Face.com facial recognition app to tag friends in photos for two years before Facebook made facial recognition a default feature for photo tagging this year. CEO Gil Hirsch, 37, says he isn’t worried about Facebook making his app irrelevant. “Our technology is better,” he says. Plus the social networking site is not the company’s only outlet. They offer a facial recognition technology API that 20K developers are using for their own projects, such as FindYourFaceMate.com, a dating site with the narcissistic premise that we get along best with people who resemble us.
