Facebook Wants You To Send Them Your Nudes To Stop Revenge Porn

This is actually a huge step towards stopping a major problem. Sending nudes to someone is always a risky game. You might think this person loves you, they are the one, etc. But after a terrible break up or just one of the two of you being a bad person nudes get shared.

They get posted online after people get cheated on. They get posted online by people who are just punks.

Facebook is looking to put an end to it all! Or at least capture the dirtbags who post them online in revenge.

According to Metro: Facebook wants you to send in your nudes, so the company can battle revenge porn – and it’s totally legit.

People have killed themselves over pics leaking online.

It might sound like an email scam, but the company’s piloting the technology in Australia – allowing people who’ve shared nudes with partners to stop the files being shared when a relationship ends.

People who are concerned that an ex-partner might share nudes on WhatsApp, Instagram or Facebook can upload the files – and the company ‘fingerprints’ them.

From that point, any attempts to upload or share the same image will be blocked, the Guardian reports.

Australia’s e-safety commissioner Julia Inman Grant told ABC, ‘We see many scenarios where maybe photos or videos were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send the images or videos more broadly.’

In the pilot scheme, users complete an online form outlining their concerns on the e-safety commissioner’s website – and it notifies Facebook of the situation. Once that happens, Facebook’s analysts ‘hash’ the image, storing a unique fingerprint which prevents further instances being uploaded and shared.
