Facebook has announced a new detection technology and an online support hub to help people deal with the problem of revenge porn on its platform.


Called “Not Without My Consent”, the resource hub will help victims find organisations and resources to support them. The platform will also take steps to remove the content from Facebook and prevent it from being shared further, Antigone Davis, Facebook’s Global Head of Safety, said in a statement.

Revenge porn is the distribution or circulation of sexually explicit images or video of individuals without their consent. The content may be made by a partner in an intimate relationship with the knowledge and consent of the subject, or it may be made without their knowledge.The possession of that material may be later used as means to blackmail the subjects into performing whatever the perpetrator might wish.

“We’re also going to make it easier and more intuitive for victims to report when their intimate images are shared on Facebook,” Davis added.

Facebook said it would also build a “victim support toolkit” to give people around the world more information with locally and culturally relevant support.

“By using machine learning and artificial intelligence, we can now proactively detect near nude images or videos that are shared without permission on Facebook and Instagram,” Davis said.

“This means we can find this content before anyone reports it, which is important for two reasons: often victims are afraid of retribution so they are reluctant to report the content themselves or are unaware the content has been shared,” he added.

A specially-trained member of Facebook’s Community Operations team will review the content found by its technology.If the content violates the Community Standards, the company will remove it and in most cases will also disable the account sharing objectionable content without permission.The Statesman.
