To Combat Revenge Porn, Facebook Asks Users To Register Nude Photos

Facebook says the footprint technology does not allow the company to store the photos, according to the Washington Post. They will then tell you to send the nudes to yourself on Facebook, and will let Facebook know you've done this.

In April, Facebook detailed plans to fight revenge porn, including an artificial intelligence tool capable of matching photos to prevent them from appearing on platforms like Messenger or Instagram.

The pilot is taking place in Australia, where Facebook (fb) is cooperating with the government's eSafety Commissioner in an initiative to prevent what it calls "image based abuse".

Australian e-Safety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, was at pains to point out that the images would not end up on the social network's servers.

"This is an initial pilot in Australia".

Facebook is trialing a new way to tackle revenge porn which involves users sending the social network nude pics of themselves.

It's not the case that every Facebook user would have to upload their nudes.

Facebook is asking its users for nude photos. Why?

Revenge porn is increasingly a problem around the world.

Facebook and other tech companies including Microsoft, Google and YouTube also use hashing technology to prevent extremist material and child abuse content from being uploaded to their platforms.

Facebook is teaming up with four countries to test a preemptive system to detect and defend against "revenge porn".

Facebook will store the pictures on its secure servers for a short period of time, so it can ensure it's enforcing the policy correctly, reports the Guardian.

Users concerned about intimate images of themselves ending up on Facebook are being invited to send the photos to themselves using Facebook's Messenger app.

Facebook employees will only see a blurred version of the image, then they'll apply the "hash" to it before it is deleted.

The photos are then processed so Facebook's photo and face-matching algorithms can identify the photos if someone else tries to post them, and then block them.

It is believed that a full four percent of U.S. internet users are victims of revenge porn. "I report the naked photographs to Facebook, Facebook will take down the photographs, but they leave the fake account with my name up there".
