Adobe needs to provide a photo viewer which supports viewing face tags outside of Lr.

Currently, the only persons who can see face tags created in Lr, are those using Lr.  Adobe should provide a free photo viewer, similar to Acrobat document viewer, which allows others to view the face tags assigned in Lr.  Without that, tagging faces is of no use outside of Lr.

I want to eventually produce DVDs of my images to distribute to my extended families.  They need to be able to see who each person is when they view the images.  They also need to be able to conveniently search on the Keyword tags to bring up sub-sets of the images.

I couldn't agree more. Please Adobe I have been searching for a long time for a way to be able to share face tags with others who do not have LR. I have many hundreds of photos in which I have identified faces, which I need to share with others.

If you save the metadata to xmp, the face tagging data is saved into an industry-standard file in readable form. The problem isn't with Lightroom or Adobe - it's that no 3rd party app has chosen to read or interpret that info.
