While the possibility of a recruiter or interviewer taking the time to go through the profiles of your connections to find pictures of you, it is conceivable that they might inadvertently see them mentioned while visiting your own profile. And even if the risk is infinitesimally small, does anyone enjoy the feeling that you don't know exactly how much of your life is currently living online? Fortunately, there is the beginning of a solution—at least for those on Facebook. A new application for the social networking site allows users to search for photos of themselves using facial recognition technology. You read that right: the app will scan the internet for you and pull up any and all pictures that may contain your visage, so that you're at least aware enough of them to request that they be taken down. Oh…and it does it for free. Need I say more?
