Skip to comments.Facebook wants your naked photos to stop revenge porn
Posted on 05/23/2018 6:08:59 PM PDT by Eurotwit
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.
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?

Nothing wrong could ever go with this /s
A nekkid photo of me although vengeful I don’t see how it would stop anything.
Oh yeah, what am awesome idea! [eyeroll]
What could possibly go wrong with sending nude pictures to a company that already has you by the short and curlies if youre stupid enough to use their service?
Do they not have enough meta data to blackmail anyone into compliance that they need you volunteering to show them your most personal and/or embarrassing moments captured digitally?
Hell, if it were Yahoo the second you sent them in theyd be on a revenge porn site in the time it took an automated script to publish them.
“We are spying on your porn selfies to protect you.”
A guy who STOLE partners’ biz idea
A guy who STOLE the FB shares of his BEST friend:
THAT GUY wants naked photos of you.
“TO HELP YOU”.
FB will sell the pics to the ABC agencies who will guard them with all diligence. Just like OPM does.
and I don't
What could POSSIBLY go wrong with this...
I am glad I closed the Facebook account and deleted it. I really don’t miss it much and it had become terribly boring.
If minors send in naked photos of themselves, even if they were lying about their age, can we shut down Facebook for good?
In fact, seeing naked pictures of Hillary is a form of revenge porn, in reverse. Or more like a form of torture porn.
The Horror. The Horror.
What would happen if any normal person asked for embarrassing nudes?
Which child-molesting perv that works there suggested this?
I shall henceforth be known as “Buck Naked.”
Have we had this conversation before?
If I could figure out a way to photoshop nekkid pix of Hillary and Helen Thomas without having to see what I’m doing i’d flood facebook with them.
