Facebook wants you to send them your nude picture. But why?

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 wants you to send in your nude pictures… to stop revenge porn

And Facebook is now testing a new, very unusual way to combat it: by asking users to send their nudes to...

Would you trust Facebook with your nude photos? The program will be tested in Australia first, followed by the U.S., U.K., and Canada, the Times of London reported.

"We're using image-matching technology to prevent non-consensual intimate images from being shared", said Antigone Davis, Facebook's head of global safety. Completely deleting a digital photo is a hard process, digital forensics expert Lesley Carhart told Motherboard.

Let's say you have a spiteful ex who decides to embarrass you by posting a nude photo made in private. "Yes, they're not storing a copy, but the image is still being transmitted and processed".

According to the Australia's Office of the eSafety Commissioner, "The pilot provides a portal for people concerned that an intimate image may be shared online to report it to the Office of the eSafety Commissioner who will notify Facebook to prevent any instances of the image being uploaded after the notification has been actioned".

It is Rs 300 for new joiners recharging via MobiKwik (offer code- NEWJIO) and Rs 149 for existing users (offer code- Jio149). Having said that, an offer from Reliance Jio includes several catches, and it continues with this offer as well.

The trial is being run alongside Australia's e-Safety Commission, and asks any users anxious about ex-partners posting intimate photos to provide the images to the social network so they can be marked and prevented from appearing online in future.

The company has said it will store the images for a short time before deleting them.

Carrie Goldberg, a New York-based lawyer who specializes in sexual privacy, told the Guardian she is "delighted" with the initiative and thinks it can help fight revenge porn.

In the pilot scheme, users complete an online form outlining their concerns on the e-safety commissioner's website - and it notifies Facebook of the situation.

The difference is for that the work, the photo needed to already be uploaded to Facebook. If any user will try to share that image then his account may get suspended for safety measures.
