If you’re creeped out by Facebook’s facial recognition program — under fire this week by European regulators — Taiwanese animation company NMA has a thing or two to share with you about that (including the outrage being “ironic, considering the pervasive nature of public surveillance in Europe.”)

As Facebook rolled out the app in the U.S., you can turn off the “photo tag suggestions” feature (Read How? Below), for which facial recognition is used.

Still, the program seems to be kicking up a lot of dust, and there’s no entity better to take it on than NMA, known for its caustic comedy on such events as Tiger Woods’ Thanksgiving Day car accident, Mark Zuckerberg being stalked and Lindsay Lohan’s jail time.

Turn off the “photo tag suggestions” feature:

  1. From the Account menu in the upper right corner of your profile, chose Privacy Settings.
  2. Underneath the list of your current privacy settings, click “Customize settings.”
  3. Scroll down to “Things others share” section.
  4. Next to “Photos and videos I’m tagged in” click “Edit settings.”
  5. From the “Edit settings” prompt that appears on your screen, use the drop-down menu to choose “Customize.”
  6. In the “Custom Privacy” prompt that appears, you will see a drop down menu next to “These people.”
  7. From the “These people” menu, you have the option of choosing who can see photos via your tagged name. You can set it to “Only me” or you can add specific Facebook friends who are permitted see those photos via your tagged name. Here, you also have the option of preventing specific Facebook friends seeing photos via your tagged name.
  8. Save this option. As with other Facebook privacy settings, you can change it at any time. You just have to do it.
