Facebook Working On Method To Prevent Revenge Porn

Caption + Facebook is asking users to send the company their nude

If you report an image on Facebook as revenge porn, Facebook moderators will tag the image using photo-matching technology in an attempt to keep it from spreading.

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.

It is Grant who revealed the details of Facebook plan to ABC news channel in Australia.

Australia, which launched a national portal to address the issues of the revenge porn victims last month, is the first country to test Facebook's new anti-revenge porn tool.

The company is testing a new feature that will enable users to upload their own illicit images so that they can be quickly flagged up. It was even the topic of a Netflix documentary titled, "Revenge Porn".

Hopefully, advances in technology like the ones touted by Facebook and increased governmental awareness of the problem on a global scale will see instances of revenge porn reduce, thereby sparing hundreds of people the mental harm it can cause.

The, which measures the greenback's strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was up 0.18% at 94.80 by 02:10 a.m.

eSafety Commissioner Inman Grant told the Australian Broadcasting Company that Facebook is not storing these images but are using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies to prevent the image from being posted. Facebook claims it won't store images or videos and will only be tracking a digital footprint, known as a hash, to prevent the content from being uploaded again by someone else.

In March, a private Facebook group of Marines, with almost 30,000 members, was outed for hosting hundreds, potentially thousands, of explicit photos of female Marines and veteran service members without their consent. If you're afraid a photo of yours might be shared on Facebook by, let's say, a excommunicated ex or a spurned spouse, you share that photo with Facebook, and they block that photo from ever showing up. The person would then be instructed to send their sensitive photos to him or herself on Facebook Messenger.

Facebook, after all, is one of the primary places where these images are shared without consent.

It is believed that a full four percent of U.S. internet users are victims of revenge porn.

Now obviously, these are a just few of the innumerable cases of revenge porn that came to light. If the same photo is uploaded then it will thwart the same and prevent it from distribution.
