Yes, technology has improved our lives tremendously. But, its advancement can also make things tricky and sometimes, it does not work in your favour.

TikTok user from Canada, Kara Tonin (@karatonin), took to her TikTok to explain how technology failed at ‘improving’ her life. Instead, it was a ridiculous ‘tragedy’.

In her video, which has been viewed more than 2.8 million times, Kara explained how facial recognition technology screwed her over.

She started off by saying “This is a PSA for anybody who uses Google Photos or any photo app that has facial recognition.”

Kara also took the liberty of warning her son not to watch the video if he came across it.

“If you are my son watching this, please keep scrolling now. Do not watch this video.”

“So Google photos has this incredible thing where it recognises people’s faces and if you type in their name it will pull up every picture and video with their face in it.

“And then you can make an album of that person and share it with your friends and family.

“Isn’t technology incredible? A little too incredible if you ask me!”

Kara goes on to explain that she had set up the feature to automatically send any photos she takes of her son, Josh, straight to her mum.

“So a little while back I decided I wanted to spice things up a little bit in my relationship.”

Kara then proceeds to explain how she decided to film herself getting ‘frisky’ in the kitchen she completely forgot about the photo of her son on the fridge. Oh no…

“I made a rated-R video where I was doing unspeakable, un-Godly things, and Google photos picked up a very small picture of my son in the background on my fridge,” Kara said.

She added, “And said ‘hey that’s a picture of Josh, let’s send the video to Kara’s mom. I’m so sorry mom,” she said while ending the video.

This is a reminder to everyone that even though technology can improve our lives significantly, there may be collateral damage that comes with it.
