The rumors have been flying around for a while now, but it seems it has finally happened. The acquisition is a done deal. The confirmation has just come in via Face.com itself. Full terms of the buyout haven’t been disclosed, but it’s expected to be finalized in the coming weeks.what Face.com actually does, in 2009 the first Face.com apps started to surface: Photo Finder and PhotoTagger.
Photo Finder lets you scan all your friends’ uploaded Facebook photos to find untagged images of yourself and your friends. Photo Tagger is a simple app for grouping and identifying the faces in an album of photos, which then suggests tags. Users can confirm (or correct) the suggestions, and tag entire albums in a fraction of the time it takes using manual tagging methods. So if you have a plethora of wedding or party snaps that you want to tag the users in, this has the potential to save you a lot of man-hours.
