Facebook asking users to send nude pics — for a good reason

MENLO PARK, Calif. — Facebook is asking some of its users to send them their nude pictures. The company is testing a program in Australia that would mark each picture as non-consensual explicit material.

According to Fortune, the program would then prevent another user from uploading the same photo.

Facebook is working with an Australian government agency on the project.

Australia’s e-safety commissioner says revenge porn has been an increasing problem in the country.

Facebook hopes the program will prevent people from releasing nude pictures as revenge.
