Something that always irks me is when people send naked photos over the internet and then complain later.
Why do it in the first place?

I think it is ridiculous that Hollywood "stars" seem to always have naked photos leaked and I think the digital age really might be starting to confuse me?



The social network is rolling out the measure to crack down on revenge porn, the non-consensual sharing of explicit images. The catch is you need to share those photos with the company first.


Huh??
Why even share them at all???

So now it comes down to.....well,this!




Praised by some as a long overdue step to protect potential victims from this digital form of gender-based violence, the initiative comes as trust in the social network is particularly low, following a media firestorm about its covert behaviour and government hearings in the U.S. and Europe about the company's handling of its users' personal data.


Gender based violence???
Huh??



Steph Guthrie, a gender justice consultant who has spoken about revenge porn before the House of Commons justice committee, warns, "You can have every technical security measure under the sun in place to protect the data, but all it would take for a breach of users' intimate images would be one rogue misogynist employee."


This shouldn't be about woman haters,this should be about not being a dumbass and sending your naked pics,by your own free will,with no gun to your head,to someone online,no matter who??
Why even have naked pics on your computer??
Why take them in the first place??

Shouldn't the real question be,why are you taking naked pics and sending them online in the first place??
Is it really that simple??

Now there is this to take into account.


But if uploading your intimate photos to a giant corporation makes you nervous, the fact that the process involves having those images screened by an employee of the company might also make you squeamish. Dealing with people's nude photos and potential cases of revenge porn is an extremely sensitive issue, and Facebook can't rely on a purely automated system to handle it. As countless mishaps have shown, algorithms just aren't fail-safe. But then again, neither are humans.


Here is the article
www.cbc.ca...

The wild part is that people will actually start sending their pics hoping for protection,while the real protection starts with them...not facebook or anybody else.

I think I'll go watch a cat video...no wonder they get so many views!!

Why on earth is anyone ever using facebook anymore?

And I too am growing increasingly confused about this digital age that we find ourselves in, I really don't like it.

this is just madness. if people do not want naked pics or pics of them in compromised positions out there, just stop posting them or taking them in the first place maybe?

And a side note, what in the blue hell is a "Gender Justice Consultant"? This world is getting to crazy for me.

Why do you care if people are sending naked pictures to their boyfriends or girlfriends?

I agree that storing them on phones and cloud services is a bad idea.

But people shouldn't be dirtbags when they break up or have an argument and share them without permission.

Though I am confused about how sending them to Facebook preemptively accomplishes anything.

I don't,I just find it strange.
Never felt or saw the need.

I now have visions of every senior citizen deluging FB with naked selfies!
Preemptively.
Would serve them right for asking people to do something so insanely ludicrous.

BTW doesn't FB use facial recognition? Why on earth would they need more of an image should be everyones first question!

In order to combat the possibility that I may have nude photos of myself exposed, I have sent, to all media outlets, nude photos of myself so they can know if nude photos of myself emerge for publication.

Good post, but this struck me...

...posting revenge porn is not a male specific activity, women do it to men as well.

I've never sent any pics of my bits to anyone, either by standard MMS or online so it doesn't worry me, but I wouldn't really care if an ex posted a picture they have, it is what it is, just a body part, so meh.

That got me as well...how did this become a gender issue??

I see it like this.
PERSON puts photos online.(first mistake)
PERSON might accept help from an entity who many have trust issues with.(second mistake)

Crazy breeds crazy and I guess the saying is true, birds of a feather,will all flock together.

Agreed.
It's like any issue is suddenly gender specific, but this isn't, women do it to men as well. It can be equally damaging emotionally/psychologically to men if they have 'size' confidence issues.

But yep, folk should be careful with their images if they don't want to risk being splashed online.
As I said though, I wouldn't care, it's just another one of my body parts, and if an ex did it to me, I've got plenty of female friends who would 'sort her out' for me lol

Don't you see? This is shaping up exactly like the abortion issue in some ways.

For sane people, we wonder what you were thinking to even do this in the first place. Nothing in digital dies, so if it's something you didn't potentially want splashed all over the internet, you shouldn't have put it out there even once to begin with.

For the rest, they do it and then blame everyone and everything else when those digital photos go off into the wilds of the web, and you excuse by wondering what sane people care.

You don't get it. It's not that we care; it's that we wonder about their lack of judgment to begin with.

I'm taking the pre-emptive approach. I've never sent nude photos online, but I'll start with the people who got my back if I ever do


(this is just too damn funny!)

This FB initiative only works on FB, so your ex can still upload to any other popular network out there, including the actual porn sites where then it gets shared time after time after time.

I'm not on FB -- is this even something that goes on at a high rate on FB??

You can't fix stupid!

It's purely for research purposes... working on genital recognition software.

This is just like my failed campaign to do something after hitting yourself in the head with a ball peen hammer.


Sure, you can avoid it all by actually NOT hitting yourself in the head with a ball peen hammer, but then you'd have nothing to complain about if you didn't.

Hows about FB wants said photos to begin a blackmailing database of some sort? "Adhere to our TOS, or something... upsetting may happen"

I'm pretty sure if you ever uploaded nude photos, FB has 'em already.

I have deleted photos from years and years ago that FB still tries to suggest for me to use as a profile image.

It should come as no surprise, but THEY. HAVE. EVERYTHING.

Ummm...I think your missing the point...this is so that the pervs who work there can have free porn to peruse to their little hearts content...and the appropriate .guv agencies can have...oversight...

It's just a ploy to get the pod people to send in their naked ass pictures...trust me...these condom inhalers will be sure to comply...post haste...

What I really need is a service that'll go through all my ATS posts and scrub the embarrassing ones. It should only take a couple years.

Gender justice !

Another bull snip cause.

Especially with the wonder of modern medicine and a snip load of big pharmaceuticals.

Men get to be women, and vice versa.

Or they can call themselves a 'They' like in the televisions series Billions.

Manufacturing the sex war people.

Anti science as you can get.
