Facebook is trying to combat “revenge porn” by encouraging users to submit their nude

Facebook launched a pilot program in Australia which involves users sending the social network nude photos in order to create a hash, or a digital footprint, to enable users from uploading a similar photo to the site.

The ABC has reported that Facebook is partnering with the Australia Government's Office of the eSafety Commissioner for the pilot test.

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's definitely worth thinking about how to hack proof your life but the good news is that Facebook are finally climbing onboard, too. It uses "cutting-edge" technology to prevent resharing of the images on its platforms, which includes Messenger and Instagram. This would prevent the images or videos from being reposted later by anyone other than the content owner. Facebook, in their April announcement of the program, called the employees "specially trained representatives from our Community Operations team". From there, Facebook will use image-matching technology to detect whether or not an uploaded photo has been previously flagged.

The company has said it will store the images for a short time before deleting them. The U.S. Marines were hit by a non-consensual image-sharing scandal this year, prompting Commandant Gen. Robert B. Neller to ask the men in his Corps this March, "How much more do the females of our Corps have to do to be accepted?"

She explained: "Revenge porn is becoming such a huge epidemic among young people, it's absolutely disgusting and if there's any way to tackle it then we should take that seriously". Hackers and digital security researchers believe the system could still be bypassed by inserting enough hidden code into the image metadata.
