Facebook trolled for asking users for bare photos


In an attempt to clean up its reputation from the recently discovered Cambridge Analytica Data scandal, Facebook (FB) is said to be requesting its users to send their bare photos to keep them safe from prying eyes and revenge P$#n.

As per the sources reporting to our Cybersecurity Insiders, Facebook is nowadays seen using the technology of Artificial Intelligence to identify and delete user posts related to hate speeches, blasphemy content and those abusing women in every form.

In an attempt to attain success in this process, the Mark Zuckerberg’s company is seen asking people for their unclothed photos which can be uploaded to the Facebook’s Safety Partners Platform via a link.

After review by the safety team, the image will be stored with a unique fingerprint on the special database of FB which in-turn will be utilized to track down images of people being shared without their consent. As FB removes and hashes them, it will help prevent the distribution of such images on a further note.

Note 1- Currently, this project is on a trial run in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

Although it is being done to respect the privacy concerns of users, the question is who in the world will share their un-clothed photos with Facebook in order to prevent themselves from being embarrassed in future.

Isn’t this an absurd project which doesn’t make sense at all in reality? What if the shared photos are accessed by the hackers…?

Note 2- FB claims that the shared images in this bizarre project will be deleted from its servers after 7 days time from the first sharing date.

What’s the guarantee that this practice will be implemented in reality?
