I know this post is a few years old, but I thought I would point out that Picasa’s face detection can still be of some use for Lightroom users. Allow Picasa to do its face scanning and help it along with manual tagging to the extent you wish, then select all images for a given person and add a tag with that person’s name. This is probably not worth doing for all of the faces that Picasa recognizes, but as a quick first pass at tagging the top ~10 subjects, this has the potential to save some time rather than sorting through thousands of images.

I have a simple solution, install Jeffrey Fried Face-Recognition Import Plug: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/picasa-face-import

Good comments both. For me face detection in Picasa is still not very useful since I add tags for the people in the pictures.
