Facebook wants you to send in your nudes, to stop revenge porn

Facebook is testing a new method to combat revenge porn in Australia.

The strategy, now in Australia, is to have individuals upload their own naked photos into the messenger app so Facebook can tag it as non-consensual explicit media.

Facebook has teamed up with the e-Safety Commissioner to protect your intimate photos in case your phone gets hacked or you and your soulmate weren't really made for each other because your now-ex is the type of jerk who would even consider posting revenge porn.

Here's how it works: if someone is anxious they might become the victim of revenge porn, they can get in touch with the e-Safety Commissioner.

It seems Australians are having problems with #Revenge Porn, or to give it a more official title, "image-based abuse".

Facebook wants users to upload nude pictures of themselves to Messenger.

Facebook is no stranger to revenge porn and explicit content, which is banned on the platform.

Before submitting the pictures, users will have to fill out a form in the office of Australia's eSafety commissioner about their concerns, which is then sent to Facebook. Users are being asked to upload nude photos of themselves to Messenger.

Mueller's investigation also includes an effort to determine whether Trump or any of his aides tried to obstruct justice. He is also examining other possible crimes, including obstruction of justice, money-laundering and tax evasion.

All one has got to do is to contact Australia's e-Safety Commissioner (since right now they are trying this in Australia) if they're anxious about the fact that their images might get leaked.

Two years ago, Twitter and Reddit cracked down on revenge porn, banning the practice on both platforms.

Facebook says the footprint technology does not allow the company to store the photos, according to the Washington Post. They will then notify Facebook, who will use image matching technology to stop those images from being uploaded to Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Groups or Instagram.

Facebook's technology will also work with Instagram. The practice is now being tested in Australia before it is scheduled to make its way to the US and Canada.

Grant went on to reassure everyone that Facebook is not storing the images, but is merely storing a link or digital fingerprint to the images.

The new system is very much in its infancy and Facebook assures all users that none of the images are stored. "Facebook is in a unique position to prevent harm, one of our five areas of focus as we help build a global community".

In 2015, it became illegal in Wales and England to share private or sexual images or video without the subject's permission, and as of April 2017, 206 people were prosecuted under these new rules.
