Many of us upload photos on Facebook regularly to share them with our friends and family. Have you ever wanted to know how Facebook looks at out photographs and how it sees in them? Here is a simple article which lets you know what the social networking giant takes from your photographs.
When you upload a photograph in your account, it actually tries to figure what are the objects and scenes that are present in the picture. You may or may not added the description, but it has all the ability to understand what the picture is all about.
You may have uploaded a photograph of yours eating a pizza, or playing with your dear pet, or partying with your friends, or standing on the banks of the river. The company figures out everything from the picture itself. It uses some machine generated codes for helping the blind persons understand your pictures.
Here is how you can view what the Facebook’s visual recognition algorithms have found in the photographs that you uploaded in your account.
- Click on the thumbnail of any picture that is on the FB to look at it in the enlarged vision.
- Now just right click on the image and then click on inspect from the options available, then you can see the Chrome developer tools window open.
- You can then find the description of the image as seen by FB under the image tag.
FB uses this tool to make the pictures accessible to blind people, where as we can use this just in case we want to know what FB knows from our photographs.
