Billy Hawkes, who did not request the tool's total removal, said he was encouraged by the decision to switch it off for users in Europe by 15 October.

Why not only Ireland?

The fact this is getting publicized doesn't help FaceCrap's security credentials.

I only use it to attempt to watch people on relationships....

Good for Europeans. Hopefully that comes to America soon. I would almost be okay with the feature if its only purpose was to let a user, and only that user, know when someone else was trying to upload a picture of them AND that user had the option to prohibit the upload (basically turning it into an image upload authentication feature). As it's implemented now? Kill it with fire.

That's very mature of you.

Tagging people does have some legitimate uses but, not many...
