Revenge Porn: How Facebook Is Planning On Tackling It

Not only will this team mean issues like this will be dealt with faster, but this new photo-recognition technology that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is putting into place will be able to find any reproductions of the offensive photos and delete them all.

Editors' Note: Adult Australians concerned that an intimate image may be shared online can complete an online form on the eSafety Commissioner's official website detailing their concerns.

According to Facebook's Head of Global Safety, Antigone Davis, the pilot is an industry first, which builds on the non-consensual intimate images AI tool that the company announced in April.

The program is available in three other countries i.e, U.S., U.K., and Canada. "This pilot has the potential to disable the control and power perpetrators hold over victims, particularly in cases of ex-partner retribution and sextortion, and the subsequent harm that could come to them", says Inman Grant.

If someone has become the victim of revenge porn, Facebook and the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative created a booklet detailing what actions to take, including reporting the image or video, seeking support from a friend or therapist, calling the CCRI Helpline, documenting everything, and blocking the culprit.
