Facebook Wants Your Nude Photos (for a Good Cause)

The BBC understands that members of Facebook's community operations team will look at the images in order to make a "fingerprint" of them to prevent them being uploaded again.

The company is hoping that using the technology will save users the agony of having the pictures deleted only after reporting them to Facebook. Adults who have shared nude or sexually explicit photos with someone online and now are anxious about unauthorised distribution can report images to the Australian government's Safety Committee.

There are fears the images could be found before being deleted, intercepted on their way to Facebook, or people could get around the technology by simply resizing images.

The new initiative is now being piloted in Australia in partnership with the Office of the eSafety Commissioner.

Facebook are trialling a new scheme in an effort to combat revenge porn. "My concern has to do with where those images would then be stored after they've been provided to Facebook", he added.

Doctors link alcohol consumption to several cancers
If you are a moderate drinker, this doesn't mean you have to completely swear off the stuff. Fewer than one in three adults identified alcohol as a risk factor for cancer.

The company is partnering with a small Australian Government agency for a pilot project created to prevent sexual or intimate images being shared without the subject's consent.

"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", eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant told ABC news. The United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada are also expected to test the program.

The social networking site said they worked with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Center for Social Research, the Revenge Porn Helpline (UK) and the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative to ensure their methodology was sensitive and helpful to victims.

Editors' Note: Adult Australians concerned that an intimate image may be shared online can complete an online form on the eSafety Commissioner's official website detailing their concerns. It used this to prevent the image spreading and closed down the majority of accounts reported to it as hosting such images.
