Facebook Now Wants Your Nude Photos | Zero Hedge

Posted by Martin C. Fox on November 8, 2017

No dossier is complete without photos.

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

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.

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.

Be seeing you
