plastick writes: Shoppers could soon be automatically recognized when they walk into a shop using a controversial new cameras installed by Facebook in retail areas.

Called Facedeals, the camera uses photos uploaded to Facebook to recognise people as they walk in. Shoppers who agree to use the system, which has not been developed with Facebook, will be offered special deals.

The system is already being trialled in Nashville shops and bars. Is this the next level of Facebook's invasion of privacy?
