Facebook Now Wants Your Nude Photos

Zero Hedge Wednesday, 8 November 2017 ()
Facebook Now Wants Your Nude PhotosTo combat ‘revenge porn’, *Facebook is now asking users to send in their nudes,* to test a new anti-revenge porn technology.

*A pilot program is currently underway in Australia, where one in five women aged 18-45 and one in four Indigenous Australians are victims.* It appears, Facebook made the right choice to test out Australian users before a much wider and or global rollout occurs.

Australian Government, e-Safety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant said *victims of “image-based abuse” would be able to censor images before posted on Facebook’s platform(s).*

Grant further said, “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.”

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.

*Facebook announces measures against revenge porn*

Antigone Davis, head of global safety at Facebook, said ”the safety and well-being of the Facebook community is our top priority”. *And to provide such safety, Facebook wants your nude pictures.*

She also added, “as part of our continued efforts to better detect and remove content that violates our community standards, we’re using image matching technology to prevent non-consensual intimate images from being shared on Facebook. These tools, developed in partnership with global safety experts, are one example of how we’re using new technology to keep people safe and prevent harm”.

We ask one simple question: *What Rights Does Facebook Have to Your Photos?*

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.*
