Abstract
People are naturally attracted by faces, influenced by their appearance and even tend to hallucinate faces where there is none, confirming the importance of such element in everyday life. The importance of face analysis spans multiple fields: social interaction and social networks, security, autonomous systems, entertainment.<br>Therefore, it is no wonder why face analysis plays a major role in Computer Vision, from face detection and recognition, to the analysis of facial features for specific purposes.<br>This work tries to explore the history of the main algorithms in face detection, and then describe and compare the principal modern solutions in the specific task of face detection for social media, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses by developing a benchmark based on publicly available datasets. Finally, possible applications, challenges and future research directions are proposed, to further assess the everlasting significance of face detection in Computer Vision.
