As a child when I heard the phrase “Big Brother is watching” I thought somewhere, someone was literally watching everything I did. Honestly, it was a bit creepy. Now, Big Brother really is watching, at least if you consider an emerging app technology to be Big Brother-like.
Facedeals will use facial recognition software to identify shoppers. Once identified, the app will check you into the store on Facebook and then send you a customized deal. While I think the technology behind this is quite amazing, the entire process reminds me of that creepy feeling I had as a child.
What do you think, is Facedeals cool or creepy?
