Facebook seeks nude pics from users to tackle 'revenge porn'

Facebook suggests users upload nudes to avoid revenge porn

Facebook is testing a new system to combat users posting intimate photos of their former significant others for revenge.

In the Australian pilot, users must complete a form on the e-safety commissioner's website outlining their concerns, before sending the pictures they are concerned about to themselves using Messenger.

Australia is one of four countries participating in the Facebook pilot program, Antigone Davis, Facebook's head of global security told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Would you voluntarily send Facebook nude photos of yourself?

Vikings place Sam Bradford on IR to make room for Teddy Bridgewater
Minnesota has officially activated Teddy Bridgewater and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday. Zimmer said the procedure was not major, and Bradford's knee is "not bone on bone".

Facebook says the footprint technology does not allow the company to store the photos, according to the Washington Post. You just have to send your nudes to Facebook first.

The social media giant is teaming up with a small Government agency from down under, to prevent all sensitive images of its users from being shared without the subject's consent.

During the trial, those anxious about their images being posted as revenge porn have to contact Australia's e-Safety commissioner through an online form, which may then suggest providing them to Facebook.

If there is a photo or video out there you are anxious will be shared without your consent, Australians can contact the e-Safety commissioner.

There's no fee for debit card transactions, while an "industry standard" fee will apply for money funded with credit cards. With Apple Pay Cash, people can send money and get paid directly in the Messages app or by using virtual assistant Siri.

Users, who fear that their intimate photos could end up on Facebook, need to first file a report with Grant's office, which will then share it with Facebook. This involves flagging the images to specially trained representatives from the site's community operations staff, who would then decide whether or not to remove the highlighted image.

In a statement shared with Newsweek, one law firm said the initiative could make a big impact on addressing the issue, so long as Facebook is able to properly secure the naked images and videos that are sent to it. The sender is then also recommended to delete the image. It was even the topic of a Netflix documentary titled, "Revenge Porn". Facebook will use their cutting-edge image matching technology to stop those images from being uploaded.

"They're not storing the image, they're storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies", e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant told ABC.
