BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – It can either be flattering, or insulting.

There’s a new website that’s guessing how old you are, based simply off of a photo. It’s called How-Old.net, and it became somewhat of an Internet sensation this week.

Two engineers at Microsoft said they emailed about 50 people asking them to try the program and send them feedback. Within a few hours, they say tens of thousands of people from all over the world were clicking on the site.

What does it do? It analyzes your photo, detects the faces in the image, and guesses how old the people in that photo are.

The engineers said they thought users would try the program using the pre-uploaded photos, but found most people chose to upload pictures of themselves.
