'Send nudes': Facebook builds database to stop revenge porn

10 November 2017

The social networking site said they worked with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Center for Social Research, the Revenge Porn Helpline (UK) and the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative to ensure their methodology was sensitive and helpful to victims. Facebook said once the user sends the image via Messenger, it will use technology to create a digital fingerprint or link to the picture.

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

Apple moved offshore billions to new tax havens
The documents revealed that Apple approached Appleby, a Bermuda-based law firm known for managing offshore companies. The European Union is now trying to force Ireland to collect €13 billion ($15 billion) in unpaid taxes from Apple .

She explained: "Revenge porn is becoming such a huge epidemic among young people, it's absolutely terrible and if there's any way to tackle it then we should take that seriously".

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.

Waymo Announces 'Fully Self-Driving Cars Are Here,' Taxi Service Coming
Arizona , like many states, has no restrictions against operating an autonomous vehicle without a person in the driver's seat. During a demonstration last week, Waymo gave rides to reporters on a closed course that included citylike scenarios.

People in Australia who are concerned that a former partner may distribute intimate photos of them on Facebook can use Messenger to send the photos to be "hashed", according to the office of Australia's e-safety commissioner.

A Facebook spokesman told the Telegraph: This is an initial pilot in Australia.

After the first time the convoy passed her, she caught up again when it stopped at a red light. She is now working with attorneys at the American Civil Liberties Union.

"The safety and well-being of the Facebook community is our top priority", Ms Davis said. We look forward to getting feedback and learning. "Once they delete the image from the thread, we will delete the image from our servers". However, a "specially trained representative from [Facebook's] Community Operations team" does need to first review the image before hashing it. Stamos went on to say that Facebook takes steps to protect the data and only retains non-reversible hashes. It used this to prevent the image spreading and closed down the majority of accounts reported to it as hosting such images.
