Do you know Facebook can see inside your photos, even if you don’t add any description? Believe it or not, Facebook has a ‘Third Eye’ view of all the photographs you upload to it. From sharing quotes of Albert Einstein to the photo of you and your dog playing ball, Facebook’s computer vision tags try to figure out what all the scenes and objects are inside the photos. Although we don’t add any description to it, the feature enables the social media platform to explicit the cause of the picture and what is it all about.
The Facebook Image Recognition may sound insecure, but the reason behind this is heart melting. May it be an occasion celebrating with your family or may it be your birthday, the social media network can precisely excavate these details from your photos itself.
You’ll probably be wondering how and what Facebook can see inside your photos, right? Well, it’s quite easy. Here’re the steps to view what is there inside your photos on FB.
What Facebook Can See Inside Your Photos
- Open any of your favorite photographs you upload to your Facebook account and click on the thumbnail to view the enlarged version of the pic
- Right-click on the photo and open the Chrome Dev tools by clicking on the Inspect option. This trick would work across all modern web browsers since they have developer tools built-in
- Now, see the alt attribute of the image tag* and you’ll find the description of the photo as seen by Facebook
In case the <img> tag is unavailable in the developer tools, you may need to expand the parent <div> tag.
