When Facebook expanded its pilot program to block revenge porn from being posted on its platforms last month, the blowback was swift. The problem is that Facebook has launched a somewhat complex technical solution to a nuanced problem at a time when user trust has been eroded by data mishandling scandals. Microsoft developed a similar approach, branded as PhotoDNA, that is widely used to block the spread of child exploitation images online and has more recently been used to combat the spread of terrorist recruitment imagery.
Facebook wants victims to be in touch with these organizations so they can get help with more than just blocking their images from being shared—these organizations can also help people with legal questions and refer them to other resources. A user will fill out a form with the partner organization that includes their address, and then Facebook will them a single-use, encrypted link where they can the image or images.
Facebook stores the hashes in a database, preventing images that match the hashes from being ed to its platforms. Directing victims to a single-use, encrypted link prevents unnecessary copies of the image from being created—by using this method, Facebook is discouraging potential victims from sending their images via or another unencrypted communication service. But even with secure imageimage hashing, and a quick deletion process, victims of online harassment will have to share their intimate images with a Facebook employee.
It sounds counterintuitive and even scary. The alternative, though, is worse—someone you trusted posting those images publicly without your consent. ing the image to Facebook will get it blocked on Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger, wiping out some of the biggest image distribution platforms in the world. I think people will be submitting them because there exists a fear and a reason for that fear—that someone else may try to distribute these photos to cause them harm.
Image hashing systems can be tricked if the image is altered slightly. It is important to realize that in dealing with bad actors, there will always be a bit of a cat-and-mouse game where people will try to get around the systems that you build. In addition to its pilot program to assist victims, Facebook is also taking a close look at the people who post revenge porn and trying to figure out how to discourage them, according to Davis.
They may share in one place and be blocked and try to share in another place. As Facebook expands the program into more countries, the company also needs to grapple with understanding the kinds of images that may be considered intimate by those cultures. In the United States, Facebook initially defined revenge porn as nude images or videos that were meant to remain private.
But it later expanded its definition to include other intimate images that were near-nude, such as images in which a person was wearing lingerie. And that definition will keep shifting as the program grows. We really wanted to limit this to what we define as NCII [nonconsensual intimate imagery] to start and then, as we learn more, address those other considerations as well.
The Cyber Civil Rights Initiative offers a comprehensive guide for revenge porn removal on various tech platforms. IMHO, they should allow the user to generate the hash without surrendering the sensitive material.
