Humans to vet Facebook revenge porn photos

Mr Gillespie‏ added'Facebook themselves have perverts hiding in their closets. They would just love a nude collection of its users with an excellent cover story about protecting people from revenge porn! #PervBook Facebook Combats "Revenge Porn" With New Algorithm

The site is asking users who are concerned that their intimate images might end up online to send those nude photos to themselves via Facebook messenger. "They're not storing the image, they're storing the link", Grant replied to concerns about who at Facebook is seeing this material. This has a necessary risk built in, but "it's a risk we are trying to balance against the serious, real-world harm that occurs every day when people (mostly women) can't stop NCII from being posted", Facebook security chief Alex Stamos explained on Twitter. Adults who have shared nude or sexually explicit photos with someone online and now are anxious about unauthorised distribution can report images to the Australian government's Safety Committee.

The Office of the eSafety Commissioner is the only Australian Government agency taking part in this important pilot, which was borne from a Global Working Group established by Facebook to engage governments and businesses on keeping people safe online.

Ranch dressing finally available in a keg
Other items in the holiday line include Christmas tree ornaments, ugly sweaters, holiday socks, T-shirts and more. The company will begin selling its Hidden Valley mini ranch kegs for the holiday season .

Australia's e-safety commissioner Julia Inman Grant told ABC, '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'. 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?" A new artificial intelligence technology will remember the photo and zap it if anyone tries to post it to Facebook, Messenger or Instagram. It uses "cutting-edge" technology to prevent resharing of the images on its platforms, which includes Messenger and Instagram. The program will be tested in Australia first, followed by the USA, U.K., and Canada, the Times of London reported. One suggestion is to hash the image locally and then upload the hash to determine a match.
