HOW DOES FACEBOOK‘S ANTI-REVENGE PORN SYSTEM WORK?

Facebook is trialling a system that asks users to send in naked pictures in a bid to combat revenge porn.

Users upload intimate images that they think could be shared by a jilted lover.

The company then blocks the picture from being uploaded to Instagram, Messenger and Facebook.

A national safety organisation must be ed to have the image blocked on the platform.

Users worried about an intimate image being uploaded can fill out a form with the relevant authority, after which they will receive a link to upload it via Messenger.

A ‘specifically trained member‘ of Facebook‘s community operations team will then manually review images to ensure they violate the company‘s guidelines. 

Once the image has been sent, Facebook then ‘hash‘ that image, creating a digital fingerprint or link.

This means that only that image will be blocked.
