Will Mark Zuckerberg one day witness a blurred photo of my nude body? I asked myself this question after finding out how Facebook designed a new pilot program its testing in Australia to curb the spread of revenge porn. We now have more clarity from Facebook about how it will work.
As part of the program, users are being asked to upload nude photos of themselves to the social network voluntarily. The process works like this: First a user files a report with the Australian eSafety Commissioner's office. Then, they upload an explicit picture of themselves to Facebook Messenger (they can do this by starting a conversation with themselves) and flag it as a "non-consensual intimate image" for the social network.
