'Insidious': Facebook Unveils New Measures to Put a Stop to 'Revenge Porn'; Source:Sputnik International

Ever Since Facebook came around many folks out of their unreasonable want for revenge have been using it violently. The most hurtful and totally unacceptable of these is the ‘Revenge Porn’ method used by males either to blackmail other female friends, a silly act-of-cowardice out of agony to face rejection or whatever the reason might be for some lunatics who take humanity as a joke. Well, we have all been praying for it to stop because every day we come across dozens of revenge porn cases, and many females who commit suicide afterward, isn’t it? Whatever is shared between two people is strictly confidential and both parties should be aware of the fact that breaking this confidentiality is totally a bad idea. Thanks to the facebook it is finally taking reforms to stop this act of shame.

The rumors have it that Facebook is testing a new methodology to halt revenge porn. According to rumors, it will require you to send your own nudes to yourself via the messenger app. This is how the method works; the Facebook will create a digital fingerprint for the image and count it as explicit, non-consensual content.

So if your relationship with your partner does not go as planned, you can now prevent your intimate photos that were shared earlier with your former lover. According to the Australian Broadcasting Corp, the Facebook is partnering with this Australian government agency to stop the abuses using the sexual content.

Now that you have sent yourself the image, the new technology that Facebook has created will create a hash to it. This means having a link to it, now if someone goes around sharing this image elsewhere, it can be stopped, right away!

Therefore, if your ex-partner is indicating you of taking wrong ways, and that your intimate images could be potentially at risk- you know what to do! Just reach out to the Australia’s e-safety, who will further guide you to send your own images to yourself on the Facebook messenger. Because the chat is encrypted end-to-end the image is totally safe, all that it will do is create an imprint of the image on the Facebook server which will now be able to secure it from any misuse on the internet.

The Facebook addressed this highly hateful revenge porn issue in the US back in April, while introducing its now photo hashing technology. Since then these cases of re-sharing photos have considerably dropped and it is a big success. It is true that Facebook has taken appreciative measures for the issue, but the Internet is a big world and the revenge porn is happening on so many other platforms than just facebook. The most shocking fact is that it has been happening ever since the start of the Internet, why is it taking so long for others to take measures to prevent revenge porn?
