Facebook anti-revenge porn program asks users for their nude photos
Facebook is reportedly testing out a pilot program to counter revenge porn that involves users sending the company nude photos of themselves that may be in others' possession.

The program, which is currently only being deployed in Australia, creates a digital thumbprint of the images, known as “hashing,” that users don’t want spread without their consent on Facebook.

Once a photo is "hashed," Facebook acts to prevent any attempt to re-upload it from another source, as reported Tuesday by The Guardian.


“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,” a Facebook official said.

Users first fill out a form with Australia’s Office eSafety commissioner about their concerns before submitting the pictures to the agency, which then will relay them to Facebook.

The photos reportedly will only be stored temporarily before being deleted after they have been hashed.

This is a pretty impressive idea.
If other groups adopt such an approach, it would help cut down on the "revenge porn" tactics.

Best preventative is not to participate in them to begin with. But to each their own....

Well, this is an excellent way for perverts to receive naked pictures for their collection, under the disguise of concerned action bullshlt. Looks like social media sites are headed toward the bottom of the cesspool.
