Facebook implements facial recognition, silent on privacy

Facebook has just announced that it is implementing facial recognition software to "make it easier to tag your friends" in photos. It will make tagging the same person over and over in an album much easier, but their blog post (Making Photo Tagging Easier) doesn't address privacy at all. I'm surprised by this, given that Facebook has been much more vocal and upfront about privacy as of late.
