Facebook Wants Your Nude Photos (for a Good Cause)

Mr Gillespie‏ added'Facebook themselves have perverts hiding in their closets. They would just love a nude collection of its users with an excellent cover story about protecting people from revenge porn! #PervBook Facebook wants you to send in your nude pictures… to stop revenge porn

The social media giant is testing out a new initiative that they hope will help them to crack down on revenge porn.

Users will be asked to send the imagery to themselves on Messenger while the eSafety Commissioner's office notifies Facebook of their submission.

Facebook Global Head of Safety Antigone Davis has clarified some things about how Facebook's test pilot to combat revenge porn in Australia works.

It's all in an effort to stop revenge porn.

Moderate to heavy drinking increases risk of cancer

If someone suspects they've been hacked or someone will post sensitive photos without their consent, the victim can preempt the "image-based assault" by filling out a form and uploading a photo to their self via Messenger. Australia's eSafety Commission said Facebook doesn't store the image, it stores a link and uses artificial intelligence to sort out the pictures.

There are fears the images could be found before being deleted, intercepted on their way to Facebook, or people could get around the technology by simply resizing images. By having a nude photo, they can use a recognition algorithm to make sure the same image is never uploaded again by anyone else. While the initial report made clear that it was not in fact counter-productive and gave Facebook the means to track the files across its network, many people still walked away from the story bewildered. Clifford Neuman has taken a first look at the new Facebook pilot program in Australia that will also come to the U.S. The program is a protection tool. So Facebook is saying there shouldn't be easy workarounds like changing some basic aspect of the photo file to bypass the company's detection system.

Users would upload their nude photos to Facebook and a trained community operations team would review the photo. At that point, Facebook will delete the image from its servers. Further instances of the images will then be blocked.
