Facebook Photos, one of the social network's most popular features, is getting a big and potentially controversial upgrade with a new feature that automatically suggests who users should tag in photos based on facial recognition technology.

Cox did not disclose the partners Facebook (Facebook) worked with for Tag Suggestions, although we have our suspicions.
