The world’s largest social networking site Facebook has purchased the services of Face.Com to provide its millions of users a fantastic experience of photo viewing and sharing.
Face.Com is a face recognition technology that will help the users to identify names and natures of all the images they see on Facebook.
This technology has especially been employed for those surfers who use facebook on handsets like iPhone, Blackberry and other such sort of smart devices. Thus, this is a type of mobile app that is set to revolutionise the way facebook works.
This is the third consecutive software that facebook has bought since the dawn of 2012. A few months back, the site incorporated Instagram and Glancee to its system.
Instagram is a photo-sharing application availed for one billion dollars while Glancee is a social discovery startup.
Both these apps have supplemented the ratio of the facebook users and Face.Com is going to hike it further.
Basically, Face.Com will work with the smartphone manufactures that use facebook software in their products as facebok on smartphones is fast a growing phenomenon.
With the excessive use of cellular technology, facebook is rapidly working to make more sophisticated and beneficial mobile apps in a bid to stay alive in the competitive global market.
It is expected that Face.Com will give a big boost to facebook in the time to come. It will also spike up the value of the site’s shares in the stock market.
In face, facebook has taken a timely and judicious decision to get this advanced technology.
