Ray K. C. Lai, Jack C. K. Tang, Angus K. Y. Wong, Philip I. S. Lei


This paper presents the idea of an online social network that makes use of the face recognition technology. With the technology, friend relationship can be established without the need of having the text-based information of a user, friend recommendation algorithm can be more accurate, and face tagging can be done automatically. The design and implementation issues of such system will be discussed. The prototype of our proposed social network will be demonstrated to show the feasibility of adopting the face recognition technology in online social networks.
