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

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

Facebook is involved in a groundbreaking scheme to stop revenge porn before it happens, by "blocking" nudes which a disgruntled ex might upload. " That way Facebook can identify the photos should someone else try to circulate them through the site". The same hashing technology has been used for years to prevent the spread of child porn, and is also used by internet companies to share and block terrorist images, reported the Telegraph.

"There's very little consistency between laws internationally and police cooperation and processes to make sure that countries can work together, to make sure that images can be taken down, or to pursue a criminal response".

According to the Australia's Office of the eSafety Commissioner, "The pilot provides a portal for people concerned that an intimate image may be shared online to report it to the Office of the eSafety Commissioner who will notify Facebook to prevent any instances of the image being uploaded after the notification has been actioned".

The pilot program is also available in the US, the United Kingdom and Canada, according to CNBC.

Herning and PopFront will not in any way accede to your attempt to suppress their constitutionally protected speech". Meanwhile his colleague Matt Cagle added that "intimidation tactics like these are unacceptable".

Facebook's Head of Global Safety, Antigone Davis, said the pilot is an industry first, and builds on the non-consensual intimate images tool announced by Facebook in April that uses cutting-edge technology to prevent the re-sharing of images on its platforms. "So this is impactful".

The pilot is meant to help prevent "revenge porn", or having intimate images shared across the social network without the owner's permission.

"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", eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant told ABC news.

If someone suspects they've been hacked or someone will post sensitive photos without their consent, the victim can preempt the "image-based assault" by filling out a form and uploading a photo to their self via Messenger.
