Facial Recognition Fiasco

Facebook recently added facial recognition to their service offering. Many in the media are making a hoopla about it and the privacy concerns it brings up. Facebook had to add it because Windows Live already had it and even though it doesn’t have the mindshare, they have to keep up with Windows Live. The privacy “experts” haven’t made a fuss over Windows Live because that doesn’t generate as much attention.
Right now both Windows Live and Facebook don’t share recognition data across accounts, and that’s were the real privacy concern begins. At what point in the future will the average person be able to take a picture and have the internet be able to identify a stranger?
