Facebook has added new facial recognition tools to alert people if someone uploads a picture of them, just as it does if someone tags you in a picture. The roll out excludes Canada and the EU where Facebook do not currently offer face recognition technology.
It'll also help you find pictures where someone is attempting to use your picture for a profile that's not yours.

It's also added tools to help those with visual impairments so they can better understand the images through screen readers.

Look out for an "on/off" control when you're tag suggestions is set to none, it'll automatically be set to off.

We want people to feel confident when they post pictures of themselves on Facebook so we’ll soon begin using face recognition technology to let people know when someone else uploads a photo of them as their profile picture. We’re doing this to prevent people from impersonating others on Facebook.
