The Israeli company specializes in facial recognition technology for automatic identification and tagging persons on digital photos, one of its products is a popular application Photo Tagger. In 2010 third-party developers were offered a Face.com's open API to work with its technology.
Announcing about being bought by Facebook on June 18, the founder of the Israeli company Gil Hirsch has assured the developers that they would further be provided the services regardless of the deal. Nevertheless the developers are being informed that a merger with Facebook results in the closure of some products and services that Face.com is no longer able to support, CNET.com reports.
In addition to closing down APIs, the company has also removed an app Klik for iPhone from the Apple App Store. The app provides real-time facial recognition in photo sharing in Facebook.
