Privacy concerns: Facebook photo app not available in Europe
June 20 , 2015
Moments, the photo-sharing app of Facebook, is not going to be available in Europe following privacy concerns over its facial recognition feature, reports say.
The app, which has already been launched in the US, allows sharing of mobile phone photos without publicly posting them.
Ireland’s data regulator said that users must have a choice regarding the facial recognition feature, which should come with an opt-in. Currently, the social networking giant does not have such an opt-in mechanism for the service.
