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.
