polarrosetwitxr2.pngI’m very glad to let you know Twitxr is one of the first partners of Polar Rose, the service that lets you name the people you see in online photos and search for pictures of any person, with much better results then Google Image search.

Polar Rose will automatically find people inside the pictures users post to Twitxr and let anybody visiting Twitxr.com name them (see for example the picture of Azeem Azhar I took today during a meeting). All these pictures will then be searchable on Polar Rose. This integration brings to all Twitxr users the features available to the Polar Rose users who installed a browser plugin. We’ll keep working with them to find other collaboration opportunities and welcome your suggestions.

And we’re d*mn happy to welcome Twitxr! Your fantastic team moved quickly to integrate since you first suggested it.
We’re looking forward to adding new features, including embedded search at Twitxr.com.

What is Facebook waiting to purchase Polar Rose? The technology would be perfect to substitute the tedious task of tagging pictures.
