One woman said that she would be in favour of this if it stops intimate images being sent without the consent of the person in them.
Once that happens, Facebook's analysts "hash" the image, storing a unique fingerprint which prevents further instances being uploaded and shared. When uploading content to Facebook or any other site, there is always a fear that the content could be used to harass or bully the original uploader.
The program in Australia is in conjunction with the government's e-Safety Commission, an office dedicated to promoting digital safety, especially for children.
A spokesperson states in order for a photo to qualify as revenge porn an employee of Facebook must view the image first for themselves.
