New Facebook Tools To Fight Revenge Porn
Favorite

On Wednesday, April 5th, 2017, Facebook released new tools that were created in an attempt to reduce revenge porn. Revenge porn is a term used to describe intimate photos or videos shared without permission.

 

Facebook does not allow nudity of any kind to be uploaded onto its website, but in the event that someone uploads such material, the tools should help remove the material more quickly.

 

If someone sees an intimate photo being shared, they can report the photo and Facebook will use AI (artificial intelligence) and image recognition to remove the photo and prevent it from being shared.

 

According to the Data & Society Research Institute and the Center for Innovative Public Health Research, 1 in 25 Americans have fallen victim to revenge porn. 1 in 10 female victims are under 30-years-old. 2% of adult victims are over the age of 30.
