image thumb62 Riya is done with being online, to unplug on August 21

Undertakers we have another one coming your way as Riya breaths its last. The facial recognition service has finally given up after surviving the worst part of the economic crisis and will shut down on August 21. The service had been around since 2005 and made recognizing friends in photos easy. Riya did have its high times when it looked forward to a deal shaping up with Google, but it never really happened. Sad to report this but if you are its user, you wont be seeing it around after a week.
