Facebook to allow staff to look through people's nude photos in attempt to stop 'revenge porn'

As it stands, Facebook has a method to help users who are facing revenge porn situations, where a disgruntled ex might have posted intimate photos in an attempt to humiliate/shame them. How it works is by users flagging the photo, and with photo matching technology, it will help prevent those photos from being uploaded in the future.However the problem with that is that action is only taken after the image has been uploaded, which by then might be too late. Facebook then recently introduced a new and somewhat controversial method which involved users pre-empting their attackers by uploading (privately) intimate photos of themselves, in which Facebook will then create a digital signature/hash of that image so that should your partner/ex-partner attempt to upload that photo, it will be prevented. Safe to say that the method Facebook has announced has caused a bit of controversy.However these are questions, doubts, and worries that Facebook is attempting to assuage.
