Facebook No Longer Supports Face.com APIs

Posted Jul 7, 2012

Face.com is shutting down their facial recognition APIs in the next 30 days. Third party developers that worked with Face.com are not happy with the news. Below is an e-mail that Face.com sent to the developers that utilize the APIs.

 ?We?re excited to move forward to work with all our friends at Facebook. Part of this process includes closing down other products and services that we are no longer able to support, and this includes the Face.com developers API.?

This message is the complete opposite from what Face.com wrote when they were acquired.  “Now, lots of developers use Face.com technology to power various apps and make wonderful products.  We love you guys, and the plan is to continue to support our developer community. If there are new developments you can expect to hear from us here, on the developer blog, and through our developer newsletter,? said Face.com in the acquisition announcement.
