Facebook Wants Your Nude Pics Now To Stop Revenge Porn Later

09 November 2017

Facebook is asking users to send nude photographs of themselves in a bid to prevent the same images being shared on the social network as revenge porn. If your nude photo ends up on Facebook where anyone can see and grab it, even if law enforcement catches the person responsible, the damage will continue.

The way it works is simple: You send yourself the image using Messenger, then Facebook converts it into an identifiable code, which it uses to block attempts to upload the same picture to any of its services.

The plan is that Facebook will hash the images, encoding them with a unique identifier.

Demand fell by -12.2% in the month, as falling confidence among buyers continued to impact the market. Meanwhile, the number of alternatively fuelled vehicles jumped 37 per cent.

"They're not storing the image, they're storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies", she said. Facebook will save those images and hash the photos. The organization will then tell you to send the image to yourself on Messenger.

So if hackers were able to access this information from Facebook, Thompson said all they would see is a bunch of numbers that would be meaningless.

According to ABC Australia, the new scheme means that people who are subjected to "image-based abuse" can now take action before pictures are posted on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger.

Carrie Goldberg, a New York-based lawyer who specializes in sexual privacy, said: "We are delighted that Facebook is helping solve this problem - one faced not only by victims of actual revenge porn but also individuals with worries of imminently becoming victims". "My specialty is digital forensics and I literally recover deleted images from computer systems all day - off disk and out of system memory". In the new system, Facebook says, users upload the photos themselves as a preventive measure.

While giving users the power to get ahead of abusers by preemptively uploading any media they don't want shared online isn't inherently bad, requiring a stranger to look at the uncensored content leaves a lot of room for improvement. Then, you flag it as a "non-consensual intimate image" for Facebook.

It is important to note that 4% of US internet users have become victims of revenge porn, according to a 2016 study.

While testing will begin in 2020, Uber wants its flying taxi service to be as normal and affordable as ordering an UberX by 2023. Because if you're going to have people flying to work, you're gonna need some stoplights in the sky or something.

Earlier this year, Facebook implemented a photo-matching tool in the U.S. to stop sharing of content tagged as revenge porn in the past.
