Facebook Wants To Fight Revenge Porn, But You Have To Make Your Nude Pictures Public

How do you tackle revenge porn on Facebook? By sending Mark Zuckerberg’s company your nude photos.

While it may sound absurd at first, but the social network claims their newly-developed testing system is capable of locating revenge porn and deleting it automatically. Once a nude photo is removed, its photo-matching technology will ensure the photo will never show up/uploaded on Facebook again, even if a hacker or your ex tries to share/post it.

How Does It Work

Facebook has asked its users to share their nude photos via Facebook Messenger. The company will then convert an objectionable photo into a unique digital fingerprint that can be used to identify and block any attempts to re-upload it.

Antigone Davis, global head of safety at Facebook, noted in a blog post:

“We do not want Facebook to be a place where people fear their intimate images will be shared without their consent. We are constantly working to prevent this kind of abuse and keep this content out of our community.

“To be clear, people can already report if their intimate images have been shared on our platform without their consent, and we will remove and hash them to help prevent further sharing on our platform.This program is completely voluntary. It’s a protective measure that can help prevent a much worse scenario where an image is shared more widely.”

Testing Grounds

For now, Facebook is piloting the image recognition technology in Australia in partnership with a government agency headed up by the e-safety commissioner Julia Inman Grant. She told ABC News:

“It would be like sending yourself your image in email, but obviously this is a much safer, secure end-to-end way of sending the image without sending it through the ether. Once the image is sent via Messenger, Facebook would use technology to “hash” it, which means creating a digital fingerprint or link.

“They’re not storing the image, they’re storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies. So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded.”
