Facebook asks for your upload nude photos

It may sound audacious to some but Facebook thinks that sharing with a trained employee of the company the intimate images that you fear might go viral in social media can help it stop their spread, thereby protecting your privacy. The social networking giant said it was testing a reporting tool so that people who worry that someone might want to harm them by sharing an intimate image can proactively upload it, which will eventually help Facebook to block anyone else from sharing it on Facebook, Instagram, or Messenger. Facebook said it entered into partnership with safety organisations on a way for people to securely submit photos they fear will be shared without their consent -- images that are also referred to as “revenge porn” or “non-consensual pornography”.

“This pilot programme, starting in Australia, Canada, the UK and US, expands on existing tools for people to report this content to us if it’s already been shared,” Antigone Davis, Facebook’s Global Head of Safety, wrote in a Facebook post.
