What A Hoot: Facebook Facial Recognition Fail

Facebook told me that my owl necklace is a sexual enhancement item. Say what?! I’ve been Faceboobed!

 

Facebook Facial Recognition Fail.

We’ve been pampered by the advancing of technology as of late. Facial recognition software in particular is very popular in social media. It’s suggested I tag my friends, quite accurately I must say, as soon as it detects their faces and even told me to tag myself in a friend’s photo. However, it’s only a machine with so many things to learn it can only do so much. It’s no secret that from time to time it fails to do its job and the results are hilarious! 

So a couple of days ago I listed my cute owl necklace on the Popnicute website. The Facebook for Woocommerce plugin I installed in my shop populates Popnicute’s Facebook page automatically with every product I list.
I noticed that my owl necklace was stuck at “processing” so I forced sync it again only to find that the owl’s status changed to “rejected” with a reason that was so far-fetched it was priceless! 

Bwahahahahaha...

Yup! They told me that the owl was rejected because Facebook doesn’t allow the sale of adult items or services (ex: sexual enhancement items, adult videos). 

I promise my cute owl design has nothing to do with the adult entertainment industry nor is it a sexual object! xD

We all had a good laugh over at Facebook. Join the discussion and have a guess at it. I thought it was the eyes that resembled an exposed female bosom (The Grand Faceboob Saga) that had it flagged by their facial recognition software but a couple others hinted that the shape may look like a merkin (go ahead, Google merkin, I dare you).

Get the cute owl necklace in question here.

Have you had a similar experience? I'd love to hear it!

When I'm not working on improving my metalsmithing skills, I like to take macro photos of flowers (but only when the weather is warm because I'm picky like that). I spend my days watching funny animal videos on Facebook and/or glued on Netflix. It's hard to imagine that I won awards for my jewelry if you judge me by my silly pajamas.

I wanna know... What you're thinking? Tell me what's on you mind...
