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.

If Facebook was really concerned they would provided the hashing algorithms to be ran on the person's device and said person could simply upload the hash without said image ever leaving there possession.


Just sayin.

Assuming that consequently the hash from that scenario would then be accepted by Facebook as blocked, your scenario has a problem.

The problem with what you describe is that it trusts the users to behave responsibly. It bypasses Facebook's review of the submitted pictures to ensure that a false claim is submitted.

Suppose the system is set up as you describe and a hash of the below picture is then blocked.

Thus, everybody's Facebook feed would then be blocked from displaying the above picture, until somebody figured it out and reported it.

A person could actually reverse the process and instead of "revenge porn" approach, an ex could go to a Facebook page and hash the available pictures to prevent anybody from viewing their ex's pictures.

If you think anybody "needs" to resort to such tactics to get naked pictures, then you are really not aware of what is available out there...

Would that be such a bad thing?

No one would need to figure it out because Facebook would immediately send them an email/notification that said picture had been submitted as "revenge porn" and ask them to "click here" to dispute.

They could then make an example of person who falsified the submission.

Disabling their account.
Barring future submissions.
Suing them under the terms of the contract they agreed to when they submitted the hash.
Etc...

...

Temporarily, but that could be use as documentation of harassment in said individuals legal proceedings against said ex.

That settles it, I'm not sharing any of my nude pictures with you.

And for all of you that have my nude pictures, I demand that you send them back.

I wonder if I can get my Australian ex-girlfriend to submit the pics I sent to her a few years ago.
Crocodilette Dandy, can you help me?

Last sentence reminded me of the below joke...
There was a Marine deployed to Afghanistan. While he was there he received a letter from his girlfriend. In the letter she explained that she had slept with two guys while he had been gone and she wanted to break up AND she wants her picture back.

So the Marine does what any squared-away Marine would do. He went around to his buddies and collected all the unwanted photos of women he could find. He then mailed about 25 pictures to his girlfriend with the following note: I don't remember which one you are, please remove your picture and send the rest back!
