Facebook’s facial recognition might need work

Facebook is rolling out facial recognition technology, with the premise that tagging our friends and family in photos is time consuming and they would love to help us by making it easier.

I can’t help but think there are a few more bugs to work out.

Here is what Facebook just prompted me with:
