Face recognition, Google Picasa has had it for a few years. You can opt yourself out of it, so you can't/won't be auto tagged by others.

I had that too, but you can disable it. Untick "activity I have missed" under notifications.

And OP, as already said, disable face recognition.

Facebook is what you make of it yourself. There's plenty of options and ways to have things under control.

Can't asians tell other asians apart, like Western people can with each other? I thought it was a racial thing.
