Face­book un­veils new tools to pre­vent ‘re­venge porn’

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Andrew Blake

Face­book on Wed­nes­day un­veiled new tools in­tended to stop so-called “re­venge porn” from spread­ing on­line by giv­ing users a new way to re­port in­ti­mate images of them­selves not meant for pub­lic con­sump­tion.

Users of the word’s largest so­cial net­work­ing site can flag pri­vate pho­to­graphs up­loaded with­out their con­sent with lit­tle more than a sin­gle click, Face­book said Wed­nes­day.

Face­book also said it has de­ployed “photo-match­ing” tech­nol­ogy de­signed to keep re­venge porn from pro­lif­er­at­ing across its other ser­vices, in­clud­ing its Mes­sen­ger and In­sta­gram apps.
