Just got an email Tara over at Riya and I’m in the Alpha. If you’ve never heard of Riya, it’s a photo sharing site, or search engine as they put it. However it does more than just share your photos, it automatically tags them using facial recognition technology. So, still in alpha, but definitely looks cool. Riya also means business. They recommend, at minimum, to upload 1000 photos! That’s just under a 1/4 of all the photos I currently have uploaded onto Flickr!
So my plan is to test it with a bunch of my Flickr Photos. My eventual goal is to help Mom and Dad to scan all of our physical photos and put them through Riya. It will be interesting to see how Riya handles the same person over a period of years and decades. Stay tuned for more Riya!
