Facebook wants Australians' nude images to fight revenge porn

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

As first reported by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Facebook has partnered with e-Safety, a small Australian government agency, to prevent the unauthorised sharing of nude photos on the social network.

In other words, if an image has been taken down and someone tries to re-post or re-share it on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger, the person will see a pop-up that says the photo violates Facebook's policies, according to Tech Crunch.

"Once Facebook is notified, they use image-matching technology to access and tag the image to prevent anyone from sharing it on their platforms", USA Today explained.

In fact, Facebook's idea is to act before time since by posting the nude image the user can have the guarantee of him or her getting saved from being featured in any porn material that might depict them in future. They would then use artificial intelligence and additional photo-matching technologies to spot the abuse.

It was a deliberate strategy: "I was trying to break down that Marvel vs. Bendis had been working with Marvel since the beginning of the century.

"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", Inman Grant said. 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. One in five Australians aged 16-49 have experienced image-based abuse but women aged 18-24 are more often targeted, the eSafety website said.

The publication reports that Australia is one in four countries taking part in this "cutting-edge technology". That algorithm is now being put into practice to help users remove photos that were shared without their consent.

Revenge porn is one of the latest online problems, and it's one to which it would seem hard to come up with a solution.

"But the rest depends on Facebook's security controls around this". Consensual nude photos. You know what's cooler?

According to a 2016 study by the Data & Society Research Institute, One in 25 Americans has been a victim of threats or posts of almost nude or nude images without their permission.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Beast today that a staffer will first have to look at the uncensored version of the image in order to make sure that the uploaded content is fits the definition of revenge porn.

Because of these high numbers, Carrie Goldberg, a lawyer who specializes in sexual privacy, welcomed Facebook's revenge porn plan.
