The social networking site said they worked with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Center for Social Research, the Revenge Porn Helpline (UK) and the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative to ensure their methodology was sensitive and helpful to victims.

This imprint will then flag up through messenger and automatically stop it being shared on Facebook, Facebook Messenger and Instagram.

Facebook is asking its Australian users to send their nude pics in order to avoid revenge porn on social media.

She explained: "Revenge porn is becoming such a huge epidemic among young people, it's absolutely disgusting and if there's any way to tackle it then we should take that seriously".

Users are encouraged to send intimate photos to Facebook, who will put a unique digital fingerprint on it before it is sent to the recipient. First, a user must decide to upload the image or video they fear may be used by a malicious third-party, like a vindictive ex partner or an online harasser. He questions how Facebook will protect that uploaded image from hackers.

Patton Oswalt Weds Meredith Salenger In Jewish Ceremony In Hollywood
Oswalt's marriage to Salenger is his second. "They started chatting as friends, and it blossomed from there". Since then, Oswalt and Salenger had been messaging each other back and forth every night.

In a trial in Australia, Facebook asked people anxious that their intimate pictures might be posted by an ex partner to provide the images to Facebook, so that it knows to prevent them being uploaded in future.

"They're not storing the image, they're storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies". The company considered blurring out images before they ended up in the hands of human reviewers, but decided against it because that may have resulted in accidentally hashing legitimate images.

The Australian government's Office of the eSafety Commissioner announced it is one of four countries who is in a pilot program with Facebook that will help prevent intimate images from being posted and shared across Facebook, Messenger, Facebook Groups and Instagram.

On the other hand, eSafety commissioner Julie Inman Grant told AFP, "It removes control and power from the perpetrator who is ostensibly trying to amplify the humiliation of the victim amongst friends, family and colleagues".
