Steam Client Automatically Tagging Players in Team Fortress 2 Screenshots.
Only a few minutes ago I was alerted to this new function, and thoroughly disturbed by it. For a while now, screenshots taken via steam's screenshot tool have been labelled with the map the server was running at the time of capture. I beleive I am correct in saying that only official valve maps were recognised.
But earlier today, someone posted a screenshot that included me somewhere in the image, and I promptly received an alert on my community homepage, telling me that this unknown person had posted a screenshot that had been tagged with my username.
I don't know if I'm the only person who missed the memo, but when on earth was this function added? Where did I sign saying I was happy for steam to automatically profile images and link them back to players profiles? Because this is not a function that I think we need.
And I thought linking steam accounts to facebook accounts was a bad idea. Now it seems Valve is intent on making steam INTO facebook.
