Facebook is looking to fight this but would actually require you to send the nude pictures you feared might be exposed on any of their platforms such as Instagram, Messenger and Facebook itself so they tackle the revenge porn immediately when someone tries to upload this images or videos. According to Australian ABC news, the social media giant has partnered with a small Australian Government agency to combat this problem.

How Sending Your Own Nudes will be used to Combat Revenge Porn

Australian e-safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant, explained how this would work, she said:

“It would be like sending yourself your image in email, but obviously this is a much safer, secure end-to-end way of sending the image without sending it through the ether.

They’re not storing the image, they’re storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies.

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.”

After all these has been done, the photo would not show up on Facebook, even if it is uploaded by a hacker.

Facebook is constantly in the news and the social media giant is trying all its best to see the community safer for everyone, tackling revenge porn is surely a way in the right direction.
