Facebook wants your nude photos for your own protection

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

It's done by first contacting the e-safety commissioner or regional equivalent (e-safety commissioner is an Australian position, and this test is being carried out in Australia), after which, you will then be advised to send the photo to yourself.

Facebook then creates a unique "digital fingerprint" of each image to prevent any copies of them being uploaded on Facebook or Instagram by a hacker or a disgruntled lover. Users then send the posts to themselves over Facebook's Messenger app.

Australian e-Safety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, was at pains to point out that the images would not end up on the social network's servers.

Facebook wants you to send in your nudes, so the company can battle revenge porn - and it's totally legit. With the issue being one of the pressing problems, Facebook has come up with a solution to combat it.

It's not the case that every Facebook user would have to upload their nudes.

Pirates can manipulate the timing of a video to throw Big G's crawlers off their game, and there's nothing to say that voyeurs won't distort images in a similar way - by applying a filter, for example - to fool Facebook's engine. The company's software creates a "hash" (a digital fingerprint) of your nude photo, which tags that photo if someone else tries to upload it and prevents it from being put on Facebook.

The social media company is right now testing the new strategy in Australia where it is working in collaboration with the office of the e-Safety Commissioner to device methods so that revenge porn can be dealt with. Here's the catch: Facebook needs to have a nude photo to recognize and delete a nude photo.

The technology prevents photos that have been previously reported or tagged as porn from being re-shared.

Revenge porn isn't uncommon in the United States.

Facebook is taking drastic steps to stop revenge porn.

Back in May, Facebook announced it was hiring thousands of new employees who will be specifically tasked with monitoring and removing flagged posts.

Will Facebook in the US get this technology? "So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded", she explained.
