Facebook to use naked images to combat revenge porn

If you report an image on Facebook as revenge porn, Facebook moderators will tag the image using photo-matching technology in an attempt to keep it from spreading.

According to Australia's eSafety Commission, if you're concerned that your intimate photos may end up on Instagram or Facebook, you will be asked to send your own nude photos to yourself in a Facebook message.

If you're anxious your intimate photos will end up on Instagram or Facebook, you can get in contact with Australi's e-Safety Commissioner.

It is Grant who revealed the details of Facebook plan to ABC news channel in Australia.

Facebook is now testing the system - starting in Australia, but spreading to other parts of the world - but it's not really clear how willing potential revenge porn victims will be to go along with the scheme.

In the age of social media, "revenge porn" has become a serious issue for many people. Or want to ensure that you are not a victim of revenge porn?

"We see many scenarios where maybe photos or videos were taken consensually at one point, but there was not any sort of consent to send the images or videos more broadly", e-Safety commissioner Julie Inman Grant told the Australia Broadcasting Corporation.

This has led some security experts to warn that more needs to be done to combat revenge porn, particularly in terms of education. Facebook, Twitter and Google all use the the same hash database to identify and remove illegal images.

It may seem counterintuitive, but the idea is to upload intimate photos before an abuser or hacker has a chance to share them on Facebook or Instagram without your consent.

The nude image would not be stored within the system.

Facebook, being the most prominent social network on the web, has developed tools to prevent such content from spreading and get removed as soon as possible. Sexually explicit photos, and the threat of publishing them for the world to see, can then be used for blackmail.

While it trains the algorithm, Facebook will assign a human Community Operations Analyst, who will be responsible for accessing, hashing and protecting images, to every case the commissioner hands over.

Grant and Facebook, however, are very confident of Facebook's anti revenge porn tool.
