Send us your naked photos!

Post by John Faulkner, Skegness » 16 Jun 2018 09:03

I thought that would get some attention!

This article from my favourite organisation, the always lying, covering up bbc published an article about revenge porn. Once again, we are relying on automated recognition systems. What could possibly go wrong? :oops: :lol:
Facebook is asking British users to send naked photos of themselves to the social network, to try to stop revenge porn.

If you're worried an intimate photo of you could be shared by someone else, the idea is to get it blocked before it appears online.

Similar technology is used to try to stop the spread of child abuse images.

Facebook's been testing the system in Australia and is extending the trial to the UK, the USA and Canada.

A spokesman told Newsbeat the idea is open to people in the UK now.

Revenge Porn: What to do if you're a victim

Facebook hasn't revealed any details about how the trial in Australia went - but obviously, the idea requires a huge leap of faith.

Would you send sexually explicit photos of yourself to Facebook?

Could you be certain the image would be handled sensitively - and crucially, not shared?

How it works
If there's an image you're worried about, Facebook says you should contact its partner for the trial. In the UK, it's the Revenge Porn Helpline.

Staff there will then get in touch with Facebook and you'll get sent a link to upload the photo.

Who will see my naked photo?
Facebook's Global Head of Safety Antigone Davis told Newsbeat that photos will only be seen by "a very small group of about five specially trained reviewers".

They'll give the photo a unique digital fingerprint - something called hashing.

That code will then be stored on a database. If anyone else tries to upload the same photo, the code will be recognised and it'll be blocked before it appears on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.

The original photos will not be stored
Oh, right, so this system is completely infallible. Yep!

Just so there aren't any problems here, I submit a photo of my manhood below.

Well in my 62 years of being on this planet I have never heard so much rubbish as this so if people put themselves in compromising positions then that's their look out.
