Send your nude images to Facebook to stop revenge porn

Facebook is asking users to upload nudes to stop revenge porn online

First, you have to get in touch with the e-Safety Commissioner (Julie Inman Grant in this case), and then they might instruct you to upload your nudes to Facebook Messenger in a conversation with yourself.

Back in April, Facebook launched a photo-matching technology system that meant if a post was tagged as revenge porn or reported, it could no longer be shared on the platform.

The way Facebook explains it, any attempts to upload your explicit photos will be thwarted when the hacker or your ex-paramour tries to put the same image online because Facebook will have an "image" with which to compare the nude upload. According to a 2016 report from the Data & Society Research Institute, about 4% of U.S. internet users have been the victims of revenge porn, and the number rises to 10% for women under the age of 30.

Facebook and other technology companies use this type of photo-matching technology where images are "hashed" to tackle other types of content including child sex abuse and extremist imagery.

In a statement on the trial, Facebook said: "This is an initial pilot in Australia".

Elliott was not charged by prosecutors for an alleged assault reported to police in Columbus, Ohio, in July 2016. It cleared last year's league rushing leader to play in Sunday's game against Kansas City.

The Office of the E-Safety Commissioner in Australia states that image-based abuse isn't just a matter of revenge porn, however, and that it is a growing problem in the country.

The fact that Facebook is actively developing tools that could possibly help lower the number of people who are affected by revenge porn is not surprising. A person could block any image they choose from ever being posted again, which could lead to photos being censored that shouldn't be.

Without a human eye, users would be able to easily cheat the system and submit photos that have nothing to do with revenge porn. If it succeeds, hopefully expect it rollout throughout the rest of the world if Facebook keeps getting government support.

"Save your money, here it is for free", she added, appending a blurry photo of a naked woman shown from the rear, purportedly Sia herself.

One in 25 Americans is a victim of "nonconsensual image sharing, according to a 2016 report from Data & Society Research Institute 2016". More protections for people who could be affected by revenge porn are desperately needed, but this method of protecting privacy has some people unnerved.
