Facebook sorry over face tagging launch
Facebook has apologised for the way it rolled-out a new system that recognises users’ faces.
The social network said that it should have done more to notify members about the global launch.
Its Tag Suggestions feature scans photos and automatically picks out existing friends.
Although users have the option to switch it off, some complained that they were not explicitly asked if they wanted it activated.

If, like me, you found it difficult to figure out how to disable this setting, here’s some help (with thanks to Chris) :)
In your Facebook account go to:
Account -- Account Settings -- Privacy -- Customize Settings -- Things Others Share
Disable the option "Suggest photos of me to friends."
That’s it, you have now prevented Facebook auto-tagging you in pictures :)
