This is it’s latest attempt to remove revenge porn from its platform.

Facebook is trying to finally put an end to revenge porn on its site.With recent controversy and issues that have become present with leaked nude photos, sites want to be able to control it. Facebook is working on creating a technique where users can fill out a form and send photos they do not want to get out to themselves via Messenger. The system will then create a photo recognition and anytime it is believed to be abused the system will block it. So far this starter program is available in Australia, the United States, and Canada.

People who exchange nude photos or take them for themselves will now have a safety net. “These tools, developed in partnership with global safety experts, are one example of how we’re using new technology to keep people safe and prevent harm,” said Antigone Davis, Facebook’s head of global safety. This is a huge step for Facebook and a big help for victims.
