Once this is done, Facebook can then create a digital fingerprint of the picture, marking it as a non-consensual explicit image.
It seems Australians are having problems with #Revenge Porn, or to give it a more official title, "image-based abuse".
All one has got to do is to contact Australia's e-Safety Commissioner (since right now they are trying this in Australia) if they're anxious about the fact that their images might get leaked. According to the social media giant, this tool will be a preventive system to detect "revenge pornography".
"Facebook is very hard as well because they don't provide you with a direct line of communication like Google Legal does", he continued.
Labour calls for probe into Priti Patel meetings in Israel
The Foreign Office, it said, was "clear that United Kingdom interests were not damaged or affected by the meetings on this visit". May yesterday summoned Patel to No 10 to "remind her of the obligations which exist under the ministerial code".
While it trains the algorithm, Facebook will assign a human Community Operations Analyst, who will be responsible for accessing, hashing and protecting images, to every case the commissioner hands over.

Furthermore, the system will only protect you from revenge porn on Facebook.
eSafety Commissioner Inman Grant told the Australian Broadcasting Company that Facebook is not storing these images but are using artificial intelligence and other photo-matching technologies to prevent the image from being posted.
"So if somebody tried to upload that same image, which would have the same digital footprint or hash value, it will be prevented from being uploaded", she claimed.
Michael Emenalo quits Chelsea in major blow to Roman Abramovich
But the Telegraph reports that Antonio Conte's unhappiness with Chelsea's summer transfer activity has led to tension at the club. The former Nigerian footballer has done well to recruit some big names since joining in 2007, helping Chelsea to eight trophies.
The trial feature will only work to stop the spread of nude photos on Facebook, not the rest of the internet. Revenge porn is the uploading of a nude photo of someone without their consent with the intent to cause harm or damage their reputation.
