USA TODAY - June 21 - A new dating website that uses facial recognition to suggest pairings based on shared facial characteristics is launching. “In the beginning, it’s the face,” says Christina Bloom, founder of FindYourFaceMate, whose official launch is July 10. Making the site’s pairings possible is Face.com, an Israeli company, which has been acquired by Facebook. Face.com’s software scans photos to examine facial features and compare them with other faces to try to make a positive identification. Facebook uses the software to identify specific people in photos, while the dating site uses the software to find people with similar features as potential dates.
