Once again, Facebook is absolutely farking terrified that it's crossed the razor-thin line between takes a brave ethical stance by taking a balanced approach between "that which brings in advertising dollars because of metrics that demonstrate increased user engagement" and "that which deprives us of advertising dollars because it exposes our organization to regulatory risk and the potential civil liability."

"This application requires access to your microphone, camera, address book, notes, burner phone, and first born, also while running in background."

"Also, send nudes for your security."

Can't they already just log into the phone and take what they need based off the EULA?

FTA: With its billions of users

The world population is about 7.6billion. "billions" would mean that at least 26% of the world's population has a Facebook account. I call bullshiat on that claim.

They say they have 2 billion users. More than one billion = billions.

And for anyone who doesn't trust Facebook with their nudes: I'm starting my own FCS Cybersecurity Inc. and will monitor all the social medias for detrimental images of you. Just send your nude pics to me personally and I guarantee complete confidentiality.

Full frontal and genital close-ups, please. It's the only way for you to be safe.

I'm pretty sure most guys will be squicked out by a menstruating woman because only one guy I've had sex with wasn't squiked out by my period. He bought reusable panty liners for me.

Once Facebook gets that notification, a community operations analyst will access the image and hash it to prevent future instances from being uploaded or shared.

Is the community operations analysis group hiring?

"users" or "accounts"? A lot of people have multiple accounts, and a Facebook account for every business isn't really a "user".

It depends on whether the images themselves are stored, or just whether data identifying the image is stored. Although, knowing Facebook, it's probably the former even if they describe it as the latter.

As pointed out, most folk have multiple accounts. I've quite a few friends who not only have multiple accounts but they have accounts for all of their pets and things like their child's favorite stuffed animal.   The animal accounts are mainly for games so that their main account can get extra stuff for having "friended" other users.  The stuffed animals is so that the parent traveling can upload pictures of the stuff animal traveling around the globe.

Does that number include the people who have multiple accounts because they forgot their password and just made a new account, pets whose owners made accou,rd for them and the fake accounts trolls set up to claim someone really likes granny threesome?

I currently work for Facebook on this project so send them to me.  I work in the Female division so I'm only responsible for the female pictures.  I'll get y'all a place to send the male ones later.

Until then it is tantamount that attractive women send me any and all nude pictures of themselves so we can quickly rub this out. I mean put this to bed.  I mean... just do it already ladies.  I'm totally legit.

Yeah, the proper way would be to store the hash and delete the image. However, the real proper way would be to generate the hash on the client device so Facebook never gets the original image. Some tech nerd is going have his dick explode from Priapism over this.
 
2017-11-08 08:55:09 AM  
This won't work. Just like youbtube, people will reverse the image or add/remove inconsequential data to defeat the unique hash.

Seriously, this is so dumb (or is it brilliant?). Client side hashing would be a lot more efficient AND secure. Unless "hashing" is an oversimplification and they're actually doing some advanced magic to try to include many trivial edits to the image - cropping, reversing, overlaid text or emojis. In that case, they may want to attempt to keep the hashing process secret so that assholes can't easily learn its rules and what it takes to trick it.

The problem with that is, some White House staffer uploads hashes of embarrassing pictures of the president to ban them from Facebook.  Human review can verify that the pictures really are hot.

I mean, the whole concept isn't terrible --->IF<--- the pictures never leave your computer.  You could easily write a program that would hash the picture as well as some common transforms.  In fact, you could use that to prevent copyright infringement, too.  Requiring the user to send the photos themselves is just sloppy.

In the Australian pilot, users must first complete an online form on the e-safety commissioner's website outlining their concerns. They will then be asked to send the pictures they are concerned about to themselves on Messenger while the e-safety commissioner's office notifies Facebook of their submission. Once Facebook gets that notification, a community operations analyst will access the image and hash it to prevent future instances from being uploaded or shared.

What tech illiterate moron came up with this procedure? They should do all of the hashing locally, on a phone or pc or whatever, and then send those to Facebook.

I'm a little confused as to what this is supposed to accomplish, doesn't Facebook already delete any image containing nudity and/or porn? Or is this technology supposed to analyze the image and stop it before it gets uploaded? Either way, it seems more than a little creepy to ask users to send them their nude pics, not to mention that there's thousands of other sites people are more likely to upload them to.

Which would be awesome because 4Chan would hash and send all brand and ad images they could get their hands on.
