On November 9th, Doug Austin of CloudNine featured the Ride the Lightning (RTL) blog post “Facebook: Upload Your Nude Photos to Prevent Revenge Porn – Huh?” in his own post. His blog post, “Facebook Wants You to Send Them Your Naked Pictures to Prevent Revenge Porn. I’m Not Kidding: Data Privacy Trends” is featured in CloudNine’s eDiscovery Daily Blog. CloudNine is a legal intelligence technology company with deep expertise in the analysis, processing, and review of electronically stored information (ESI). Ride the Lightning is an electronic evidence and cybersecurity blog by Sensei’s Sharon Nelson.
Good question. Nonetheless, it’s an interesting concept and idea to prevent revenge porn – provided you can actually convince people to upload those photos and trust Facebook with them.
So, what do you think? Do you trust hash technology to keep your most embarrassing photos from becoming public? As always, please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
Hat tip to Sharon Nelson and her Ride the Lightning blog (my go to source for interesting cybersecurity news) for the reference to the story.
