Facebook is Trying to Help Us Tag Our Photo Locations

tag locations photosWhile hanging around Facebook yesterday, I noticed something new. In the right sidebar (above the ads) of the homepage, there appeared a new section that displayed three of my photo albums and asked if they took place in a particular place.

For example, under the cover photo for an album containing my pictures from a Red Sox game this past summer was a suggestion that they took place at Fenway Park, Boston, MA.

It appears that Facebook is politely trying to get us to clean up and organize our timelines a bit now that they are public.

Apparently I am not alone. I found this blurb about it in AllFacebook last night.

People really concerned about privacy may have issue with these unintrusive recommendations, but it is only a recommendation and you can select 'no' if you chose not to tag your photos. No harm, no foul.

What do you think about these new recommendations?
