Facebook Says Trained Person Will Review Nude Images to Curb Revenge Porn
How does the mechanism work?
Australians can complete an online form on the eSafety Commissioner’s official website. To establish which image is of concern, people will be asked to send the image to themselves on Messenger.
The eSafety Commissioner’s office notifies Facebook of the submission (via their form). However, they do not have access to the actual image.
Once Facebook receives this notification, a specially trained representative from its Community Operations team reviews and hashes the image, which creates a human-unreadable, numerical fingerprint of it.
Facebook stores the photo hash – not the photo – to prevent someone from uploading the photo in the future.
“If someone tries to upload the image to our platform, like all photos on Facebook, it is run through a database of these hashes and if it matches we do not allow it to be posted or shared,” Davis said.
“Once we hash the photo, we notify the person who submitted the report via the secure email they provided to the eSafety Commissioner’s office and ask them to delete the photo from the Messenger thread on their device. Once they delete the image from the thread, we will delete the image from our servers,” Davis noted.

- Twitter users can now use display names to 50 characters
- Twitter recently doubled tweet character limit
- The changes now available for all
Micro-blogging service Twitter has more than doubled the display name character count to 50. The new change comes merely days after all Twitter users received the 280-character tweet limit support. Previously, Twitter supported 20 character display names, which was criticised by man
With the new announcements, Twitter users can now have display name up to 50 characters long while username (or @handle) can be up to 15 characters long. For those confused with the difference between username and display name on Twitter, a username appears in profile URL and is unique to a user. It is usually also called as Twitter handle and is displayed as @XYZ. It’s also used for logging in, replies, and Direct Messages while display name is a personal identifier (like a real name) displayed in profile page and used to identify a user. On Twitter, display name and username are generally not the same.
