I have a fallback to Face API in my startup using OpenCV Viola-Jones algorithm, I'll put it under "face-alt.org" soon.

AFAIK, Face.com provides face recognition, not only detection. They've presented their approach at YaC'2011 here in Moscow, and it is quite sophisticated. Not VJ at all.

Agreed, but for some (many) projects face detection is enough. For example all the "put a hat on your pictures" apps.

Then of course use OpenCV. Their face detector is very good.
