These new additions expand on how Facebook already uses facial recognition, which is primarily through "tag suggestions" - a feature started in 2010 that suggests which of your friends should be tagged in photos that you upload to the site.
This would allow Facebook to implement more features that use facial recognition, such as account recovery, though that remains to be seen. These settings boil down to Facebook demanding forgiveness after refusing to ask for permission, and it may not sit well with users.
Behind the message about protecting your identity, though is a larger truth about Facebook's ability to reach into your personal business: The announcement means that Facebook's face-recognition technology is now so powerful that it can recognize you in any photo, anywhere, even if it has no other reason to expect to find your face in that photo.
As for Photo Review itself, it is powered by the same AI technology that suggest friends you might want to tag in your pictures.
The new features are launching worldwide except in Canada and the European Union where Facebook now doesn't offer facial recognition technology.

Unfortunately, the feature is not rolling out to Canada and the European Union where Facebook doesn't now offer face recognition technology.
Honesty time: I have some friends on Facebook whose posts sometimes greatly annoy me.
