As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


Facebook’s Obsession with Photos

FaceOff_(1997_film)_posterFacebook is apparently testing a facial recognition scheme that, if applied across their universe, would require users to upload a picture of their face to prove they're not a bot (or a Russian poser, one presumes). Facebook says that they will use both automated and manual reviews to detect suspicious activity.

Which, if they hadn't recently suggested that people should send them nude pictures of themselves so they could combat revenge porn, might actually make some sense. But, the timing here is just a little too creepy.

Past that, however, their facial recognition request (while a huge pain in the ass) may actually have some merit.

Unless you are either John Travolta or Nicholas Cage.
