This might sound absolutely creepy and speaking of the fact that a social network has explicitly requesting users for their naked pictures. Of course, the matter is confirmed to be true as Facebook have agreed to work along with a government to tackle the revenge porn.

The core interest is to help users feel relieved by this feature of the platform, where the image shared by the user will be converted into a digital fingerprint. Thus, setting up the necessary measures for anyone to share similar pictures on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger.

Revenge Porn, what is it?

People around the world tend to share intimate, nude or sexual image of themselves with their partners or dearest of the friends. After a particular point of time, the other party may threaten or actually post those private photos on the internet due to breakout in their relationship. This type of act is considered be the revenge porn, where not only images but several other private recording media were shared on the internet.

Facebook & Government Agency

Facebook have been handling this specific technology feature in partnership with an Australian Government Agency to transform the pictures from users into a digital fingerprint. Then the fingerprint will help them to block or avoid by artificial intelligence, that those why tries to get those private images online. In an interest to reduce the growing number of victims of the revenge porn and to completely kill it in the near future, Facebook have initiated along with the government agency as a testing phase.

How it Actually Works?

Well, it is not completely clear on how it is going to actually work. But for now, it has been announced that the users can send their private intimate images to themselves in the Facebook Messenger app. Simply, initiate a chat dialog to message yourself on Facebook and then send the image through it.

Facebook will scan and turn that image into a digital fingerprint, so as to avoid anyone else including the hackers from stealing the images as well no one else will be able to upload them onto Facebook, Instagram or Messenger (other chat). But what about all other places excluding these three?

What if the hacker or someone got their hands on the images illegally and trying to share them on any other platform apart from those of Facebook’s? Let’s wait and see!

Note: As we have understood, Facebook is testing this feature for now with the Australian users as beta phase.
