In my opinion it would be a nice idea to invite the UE Parliament to
follow the UE Art. 29 WP recommendations, esp. regarding face
recognition and video surveillance, mentioning the dangers of
biometric data in SNs.
Considering the visual re-identification of people in real world through
uploaded photos and face recognition the report says: <<[...] equipping
video surveillance systems and smartphones with facial recognition
systems based on social network databases could put an end to anonymity
and untraced movement of individuals.>> (p.2)
TagMeNot.info sent an open letter to UE institutions back in 2011,
asking for a "clear and well-balanced regulatory framework that could
preserve citizens from privacy intrusions, while also providing the
environment in which citizens confidence, technology research and
business can thrive".
Of course TagMeNot.info is glad to sign!
