They say it’s for the best
In a new bid to tackle revenge porn, Facebook are encouraging users to send all their nude photos right across the internet in case a salty ex decides to upload them later. Here’s a quote from Facebook that goes some way to explaining exactly why the hell anyone would want to do that… “[Facebook is not] storing the image, they're storing the link and using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies. If somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded.”
That makes a kind of twisted sense because, if the program goes according to plan, the photo would be immediately read and never actually uploaded to the site in the first place. What it means though is that, as users, we’d need to place our trust and our actual goddamn nudes in the hands of random strangers online. That doesn’t always end that well. It also means you’d need to remember every photo you ever sent to your ex and that’s not always realistic… some of us are freaky.
