Facebook Now Wants Your Nude Photos

To combat ‘revenge porn’, Facebook is now asking users to send in their nudes, to test a new anti-revenge porn technology.

A pilot program is currently underway in Australia, where one in five women aged 18-45 and one in four Indigenous Australians are victims. It appears, Facebook made the right choice to test out Australian users before a much wider and or global rollout occurs.

Australian Government, e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant said victims of “image-based abuse” would be able to censor images before posted on Facebook’s platform(s).

Grant further said, “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.”

According to the Daily Mail, sending your nudes to Facebook will stop the so-called ‘revenge porn’ phenomenon:

  • The trial requires users to send naughty pictures to themselves via Facebook Messenger.
  • Ms Grant 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.’
  • Once the image has been sent, Facebook will then ‘hash’ the image – create a digital fingerprint or link.
  • Ms Grant explained: ‘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.’
  • If the technology works , the photo should never appear on Facebook.

Facebook announces measures against revenge porn

Antigone Davis, head of global safety at Facebook, said ”the safety and well-being of the Facebook community is our top priority”. And to provide such safety, Facebook wants your nude pictures.

She also added, “as part of our continued efforts to better detect and remove content that violates our community standards, we’re using image matching technology to prevent non-consensual intimate images from being shared on Facebook. These tools, developed in partnership with global safety experts, are one example of how we’re using new technology to keep people safe and prevent harm”.

We ask one simple question: What Rights Does Facebook Have to Your Photos?

In Facebook’s terms of service: “You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook”.

...but Facebook gets a “non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license” to your photos.

Conclusion- don’t take nudes and problem solved. Otherwise, some creepy techie in Silicon Valley along with artificial intelligence will be admiring what you do on a personal level. SkyNet called it wants your nude pictures.

Nope retard. You don't get what hashing is. They will generate a unique number based signature by using machine learning aka artificial intelligence image recognition it's kind of a cyberspace social number once they'll get it you are fucked, practically prisoner of the system. Exactly like the natives used to be scared by the photo devices thinking that they will have their souls stolen you shall be scared about this posibility.

Ladies,Please send Facebook videos of you having sex. If you don't have a video camera Facebook will give you one free of charge.  We will use this video to help stop potentially unwanted videos of you having sex from getting into someone's hands it shouldn't.  If you are ever sexually assaulted we can also compare the audio of you having sex with the audio we recorded from your attackers phone  mic (assuming it was on their person) and help you with you in pursuing charges....so make sure you're loud and moan a lot. Sincerely,The Zuck

Well, I'm conflicted.  I voted chick on right, but it feels wrong to downvote those tits. So let me get this straight.  Facebook  wants people to voluntarily send in their nude photos so nobody will ever see them on Facebook.  There are three basic issues with this.1) Can't the CIA spooks running that website just ask the good ole boys at the NSA for the photos?  You know they have them.  For that matter, wasn't the CIA caught performing domestic surveillance?  They should already have them.2) People would be sending nude photos of themselves over the internet.  Have not the hackings of Target, the IRS, Anthem Health, Exquifax, etc. proven that there is no such thing as internet security?  Anybody with half-assed hacking skills would be able to access those images.  And post them everywhere.  And sell them to the porn sites.3) It will only take one disgruntled asshole ten seconds to bring this whole plan crashing down.  It only took one butthurt antifa fuckwit to close down the POTUS' Twatter account.  It will only take one pervert to get caught distributing these images for fun or profit.  It will only take one sick bastard trying to blackmail some random chick...pay me 100 bitcoins or I send this photo out everywhere.  One person can invalidate all the time and money spent on this frankly creepy and repulsive bit of software.  The risk is insane, not just for the people sending in their naughty snapshots, but also in the liability to which Fuckbook would be exposing itself.  I can't believe the shareholders are going for this.  Oh, wait, Fuckbook shareholders are naturally devoid of functional brain cells.  Sorry, my bad.

My buddy who worked at Wal Mart way back in the day (early 90's). Back then most people were still using cameras which used film...which needed to be developed. So Wal Mart naturally had a film developing department back then, and this is were my buddy worked...hahahahaa, to make a long story even longer, my buddy had an amazing picture album. The End

Wait, clearly I have not seen all the nudes. Thank God there is now a 'safe' repository for them.

Now here's what I don't get: there are already exabytes worth of porn out there, why didn't they just download that? There's no shortage of test material for their purposes.

I'd love to know what mid-level manager thought this up and what his line of reasoning was. Maybe they didn't want to have to sign a deal with amateur porn sites and pay a non-zero amount of money? Otherwise, very suspicious.
