MARK ZUCKERBERG ROLLS OUT TOOLS TO PREVENT ‘REVENGE PORN’ ON FACEBOOK, MESSENGER & INSTAGRAM

WHAT IS ‘REVENGE PORN’?

Mark Zuckerberg defines it as ‘any intimate photo shared without permission.’

The CEO of Facebook announced on his personal page of how and why this abuse of one’s image right must be stopped, this forms part of the social networking site’s policy of building a community that is safe for everyone and prevent future harm.

“Today, we are announcing new tools to help people when intimate images are shared on Facebook without their permission. When this content, often referred to as “revenge porn,” is reported to us, we can now prevent it from being shared on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. This is part of our ongoing effort to help build a safe community on and off Facebook”, Head of Global Safety, Antigone Davis said in a blog post.

Below is how one can report ‘revenge porn’ with the new tools:

  • If you see an intimate image on Facebook that looks like it was shared without permission, you can report it by using the “Report” link that appears when you tap on the downward arrow or “…” next to a post.
  • Specially trained representatives from our Community Operations team review the image and remove it if it violates our Community Standards. In most cases, we will also disable the account for sharing intimate images without permission. We offer an appeals process if someone believes an image was taken down in error.
  • We then use photo-matching technologies to help thwart further attempts to share the image on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. If someone tries to share the image after it’s been reported and removed, we will alert them that it violates our policies and that we have stopped their attempt to share it.
  • We also partner with safety organizations to offer resources and support to the victims of this behavior.

You can now feel safe using Facebook, Messenger and Instagram because your intimate images will be kept for your eyes only no second or third party with the temptation to share to their followers and friends can.
