Facebook Wants Your Nude Pics Now To Stop Revenge Porn Later

There are fears the images could be found before being deleted, intercepted on their way to Facebook, or people could get around the technology by simply resizing images.

The system will see the Facebook community operations team using image matching technology to block the images being uploaded or shared online.

The nude program is now being tested in Australia, with e-safety commissioner Julia Inman Grant revealing in an interview with ABC that she's fully on board with the scheme. Adults who have shared nude or sexually explicit photos with someone online, and who are anxious about unauthorized distribution, can report images to the Australian government's eSafety Commission.

Facebook Australia's plan to fight revenge porn seems a bit counterintuitive.

The Guardian quoted Carrie Goldberg, a New York-based lawyer who specializes in sexual privacy, saying: "We are delighted that Facebook is helping solve this problem - one faced not only by victims of actual revenge porn but also individuals with worries of imminently becoming victims". "My concern has to do with where those images would then be stored after they've been provided to Facebook", he added.

In a statement on the trial, Facebook said: "This is an initial pilot in Australia".

Outside of the Facebook Messenger pilot project, anyone who thinks they have been a victim of revenge porn can report the photos through Facebook's dedicated reporting process, revamped in April.

The company has said it will store the images for a short time before deleting them.

On the other hand, eSafety commissioner Julie Inman Grant told AFP, "It removes control and power from the perpetrator who is ostensibly trying to amplify the humiliation of the victim amongst friends, family and colleagues".

If the anti-revenge porn trial is successful, the program will reportedly move to the U.S., Canada and Great Britain in the future.
