Facebook’s facial-recognition feature is coming under scrutiny in another country, as the Norwegian Data Protection Agency said it will launch an investigation this fall and speak with the social network about the technology behind it.
The Norwegian Data Protection Agency, which is also known as Datatilsynet, is also working with another agency that has become quite familiar with Facebook of late, the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner in Ireland.
Norwegian Data Protection Agency Communications Manager Ove Skåra said, as reported by PCWorld:
(Facial recognition) is a technology that it is important to have critical view of and see how it is actually used.
Readers: Do you think the findings by the Norwegian Data Protection Agency, the Article 29 Working Party, and the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner in Ireland will present problems for Facebook?
