Facebook's Anti-Revenge Porn System Requires Showing An Employee Your Nude Photos

Facebook is beginning to test a system that'll prevent revenge porn from even being posted on the network, meaning content won't ever have to be reported after the fact. The catch is that potential victims must share their nude photos with the company ahead of time.

The purpose of that sharing is it allows Facebook to add the photos to a database of ones not allowed on the platform. If someone attempts to post revenge porn that's in the database, it simply can't go live.

An obvious question is will Facebook's human team see the content shared by potential victims? Facebook has confirmed one of its employees will review uncensored photos to make sure they meet the platform's definition of revenge porn. If they do, they'll be fingerprinted so that they can't be uploaded by others.
