Picasa to provide tagging of people by email addressess (like Facebook tagging of photos) :
In Facebook, for example, one can tag photos of contacts and it is shared instantly and shows up in my profile when my friends tag my photo. Similarly, on Picasa, if my friends tag me in their photos, I should be able to see those photos when I login to my picasa account.
Right now, Picasa only put up names of people in photos, but I should be able to put up names of my contacts using Gmail contacts, and mark them on the photo. Then anyone should be able to search for anyones photos, by searching for the email address of that person.
