Facebook Alters ‘Tag Suggestions’ Feature, Connecticut Says

Facebook Inc. made it easier for subscribers to opt out of the “tag suggestions” facial-recognition feature, addressing privacy concerns raised by Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen.

Facebook has begun to run online ads linking users to their privacy settings and allowing them to opt out, the attorney general said today in an e-mailed statement. The Palo Alto, California-based social media website also made it easier to report impostor profiles, he said.
