Facebook's Wild Imagination

When I posted this picture on facebook, it asked me to tag the faces there, as if these dummies, mannequins are real people.

I kid you not.  It asked specifically about the short white guy in the background.

Facebook has an automatic "face-seeker" to try to identify and recognize any face you upload to your account, whether it's a doll, a sketch or a human being.  It automatically starts guessing and can be very spooky.

These "dolls" had been dressed up to promote clothes for the Rosh Hashannah/Yom Kippur holiday buying/selling season in the store where I work, Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin. We first had them dressed up to promote "back to school" clothes.

In the meantime, we still have summer clothes and shoes at special bargain prices.  That is until the higher ups in the chain give us the call to pack them all away.

Pay full price for the first and 1 shekel for the second.
