Facebook: 'Block Your Selfie' technology in the works

Posted: Updated:
(NBC) -

Facebook says it's working on technology that could prevent some embarrassing or possibly dangerous posts. 

The company says it's building artificial intelligence into its image recognition software.

The new feature may prevent you from uploading that late night selfie, or other photos you might not want to send to the social media platform. The feature will also warn you if you're to share a photo of your children to the general public rather than just your family.

A vice president of the technology company says he's not exactly sure when the new feature will be rolled out to user accounts.
