First things first, you need to Register for an API key. We offer services for detecting, recognizing, and tagging faces as well as recognizing scenes in any photo, through our REST API. ReKognition's services are offered for FREE with rate limits. Whitelisting is available. You can tag and recognize users from Facebook. Alternatively, you can train our index with your own set of users in a private namespace. We process photos from anywhere, so you can mix and match photo sources with user IDs, which could enable you to, say, recognize Facebook users in Flickr photos...
