Google is rolling out a feature that lets members of its online social network automatically find themselves in photos posted by friends.
The "Find My Face" feature being added to Google+ over the next several days is opt-in only, meaning people have to make a point to turn it on.
By leaving it to Google+ members to activate the feature, the Internet giant was sidestepping privacy concerns raised when social networking rival Facebook added facial recognition in an opt-out style this year.
