Uploading all your nudes to Facebook isn’t such a bad idea
11 November 2017 | Written by La redazione
In a limited trial, Facebook has partnered with Australia’s eSafety Commissioner to let people upload nude images of themselves to Messenger so they can be preemptively hashed. Similar trials will soon launch in Canada, the UK and the USA. And it’s not as dumb as it sounds. People who want to submit an image will be asked to send it to themselves on Facebook Messenger. Authorities then notify Facebook of the submission so the network’s community operations team can create a hash, or digital fingerprint, of the image. This hash should, in theory, prevent it from being uploaded or shared on any Facebook-owned platforms.
