Facebook Want Your Nude Photos to fight revenge porn
Facebook Want Your Nude Photos: Facebook is testing a new process to stop revenge porn which requires you to ship your own nudes to yourself via the Facebook Messenger App of the social network.
This approach would help Facebook to make a digital fingerprint for the picture and mark it as non-consensual explicit media. So, if a relationship goes sour, then you can take measures from being shared on Instagram or even Facebook to prevent any romantic pictures in possession of your previous love interest.
Facebook is currently partnering to stop such abuses that were image-based, the Australia Broadcasting Corp reported. If you are concerned your photos will wind up on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll get in touch with Australia Commissioner. They might tell you to send the images to yourself on Messenger.
When the picture is sent via Messenger, Facebook would utilize technology to “hash” it, which means creating a digital fingerprint or connection. “They are not storing the picture, they’re storing the link and utilizing artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies,” Grant said.
“So if someone tried to upload that same image, which would have the exact same digital footprint or hash value, it’ll be prevented from being uploaded,” she explained.
Australia is one of four nations taking part in this “industry-first” pilot which uses “cutting-edge technology” to protect against the re-sharing on images on its platforms, Facebook’s Head of Global Safety Antigone Davis was quoted as stating.
“The safety and wellbeing of this Facebook community is the top priority,” Davis stated.
