To Fight Revenge Porn, Facebook Wants To See Your Nude Pictures

  • Facebook is asking users to upload nudes to stop revenge porn online

If you're willing to share your nude photos with the social network, it will use them to protect you against revenge porn attacks.

Back in April, Facebook took steps aimed at combating revenge porn in Canada and the USA, allowing users to flag an image they suspect was posted without consent.

ABC News reports that the system is being trialled in Australia and three other countries. The potential victim will then be instructed to send the images to their own Facebook account via the platform's Messenger system. Anytime someone tries to upload a photo, it is checked against that fingerprint and rejected if it matches.

Grant said the process will be similar to sending yourself an image via email but is a safer and more secure way of sending the nude images, without them going through the ether.

Facebook introduced an anti-revenge porn feature in April. There's no word yet on how long the trial may run.

"They're not storing the image, they're storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies", the commissioner said.

If you think your nude photos could end up on Facebook or Instagram, you can send a copy of the photo through Facebook Messenger to company officials.

During the trial, those anxious about their images being posted as revenge porn have to contact Australia's e-Safety commissioner through an online form, which may then suggest providing them to Facebook.

Facebook says the footprint technology does not allow the company to store the photos, according to the Washington Post.

If the anti-revenge porn trial is successful, the program will reportedly move to the U.S., Canada and Great Britain in the future.

Facebook's customer support team will then review a blurred version of the image to ensure it's explicit, then "hash" it before deletion.

"But the rest depends on Facebook's security controls around this". One in five Australians aged 16-49 have experienced image-based abuse but women aged 18-24 are more often targeted, the eSafety website said. Roughly four percent of USA internet users have been victims of revenge porn, according to a 2016 Data & Society Research Institute report.

Grant and Facebook, however, are very confident of Facebook's anti revenge porn tool.
