Twitpic Launches Face Tagging
Just when you thought you figured out how to remove those embarrassing pictures you were tagged in on Facebook, along comes Twitpic to add the same functionality.
That's right. Those Twitpics of you doing the keg stand while wearing a Viking hat and a toga can be slapped with a tag announcing to the world that you're that guy.
Below the image users will be able to click the link that reads “Add/Edit Faces.”
When users tag the picture, they will have the option to tweet who they have tagged, similar to getting a notification from Facebook. The user also has the option to use real names and/or Twitter usernames to the pics. And, just like Facebook, if a visitor to the page scrolls over the picture's tag, they will see the corresponding tag.
This news comes on the heels of Twitpic, which reached the 10 million user mark recently, announcing last week that users could group photos based on an event, which is very similar to Flickr or Picasaweb in terms of picture sets.
Mashable reported that the service is also looking to implement more group and geo-location features.
A video interview with Twitpic founder Noah Everett sheds a little more light on these and other subjects, as he discusses the future of Twitter-based photo sharing.
What do you think? Are these tweaks going to make you use Twitpic more over, say, yFrog and other Twitter-based photo sharing services?
