From Fudzilla:

Social Notworking site Facebook has miffed the Germans again. This time it is the outfit's facial recognition feature that helps users tag photos.

Germany is the first to declare the feature illegal. Hamburg's data protection official Johannes Caspar has ruled that the software violates both German and European Union data protection laws. He is also cross that  Facebook users don't know how to delete the data that Facebook is gathering.
