Facebook wants Canadians to send them their nudes to combat revenge porn

Posted November 10, 2017

Facebook said it looked forward "to getting feedback and learning" from the trial.

Similar technology is already being used to identify images of child sexual abuse or extremist content.

There are actual human beings in this world who decide that the best course of action to spite their ex is to publically post a nude image of them on Facebook. He questions how Facebook will protect that uploaded image from hackers.

In the United Kingdom revenge porn is punishable by up to two years in prison.

Social media giant Facebook is trialling a new system urging its users to 'send nudes'.

Australia is one of four countries participating in a limited global pilot with Facebook that will help prevent intimate images of Australians being posted and shared across Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Groups and Instagram.

The nude program is now being tested in Australia, with e-safety commissioner Julia Inman Grant revealing in an interview with ABC that she's fully on board with the scheme.

Julie Inman Grant, Australia's e-Safety commissioner, said the company will not store the images permanently as after they are processed into a hash, the code is all that will remain. Australia's eSafety Commission said Facebook doesn't store the image, it stores a link and uses artificial intelligence to sort out the pictures.

Outside of the Facebook Messenger pilot project, anyone who thinks they have been a victim of revenge porn can report the photos through Facebook's dedicated reporting process, revamped in April.

The unorthodox scheme is now being tested among Facebook's Australian users, but Britain, Canada and the United States are also expected to take part in the project.

Once Facebook receive this notification, its community operations team will use image matching technology to prevent any instances of the image being uploaded or shared online.
