How to Find Your Look-alike

So you want to find your look-alike and don't know where to start.  We can help! Click here to find your look-alike.

A lot of websites out there today want you to page through hundreds of images to find someone who looks like you. Some sites make you fill out forms describing your eye and hair color, complexion, and other personal features in order to compare you to other people with the same characteristics. These techniques simply don't work and take, much too much time out of your busy day.

We make finding your twin easy. All you have to do is click your built-in WebCam to upload a photo. You can also choose one from your computer, or even from your Facebook profile. After that, our website does all the work. We use facial recognition technology to measure the distances between the features of your face and creates an algorithm (instruction file) that gets compared to other algorithms in our worldwide community. When the details of the algorithm are close, our website displays the be photo associated with the matching algorithm along with an icon that tells the match percentage. The match percentage is basically how good a match you have found. For instance, if the match percentage is 70%, then that match will be a good one. If the match percentage is 20% then that match might not be very good. The reason why I say "might" not be very good is because, although the match percentage is low, whether a match is good or bad is up to you.

Ultimately, when searching for look-alikes, judging how good or bad a match is depends upon the viewer. Take a look at the examples below:

   

The match that is 37% looks to be a better match than the one that is 44%. Why is that? Facial recognition technology looks at photos or images into dimensions. People's faces are generally seen in three dimensions. Since the technology is looking at your face in two dimensions, you have to imagine your face as being flat. If you are looking straight at the camera, typically both your left and right eye should be the same distance from the bridge of your nose. However, if your face is tilted slightly to the left, it reduces the distance between your nose and the left eye. Now the technology might think you are a different person with a slightly shorter distance between the left eye and the right eye. Now you will either match people who also are slightly tilted to the left, or someone who, while facing straightforward, has those measurements.

That's why we can only rely on facial recognition technology to get us in the ballpark - the final decision is up to you! Maybe you think the 44% match is better? In the end, you are the best judge of your own look-alike.
