Facebook acquired an Israeli company that specializes in facial recognition software.

The terms of the deal between Facebook and Face.com were not disclosed by either company, according to the New York Times, which reported the deal on Monday. 

Face.com has been used by Facebook in the past two years for its “tag” feature in order to identify individuals across Facebook.

The facial recognition technology used by Face.com is designed to identify individuals by their gender and age.
