Not only will this team mean issues like this will be dealt with faster, but this new photo-recognition technology that Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is putting into place will be able to find any reproductions of the offensive photos and delete them all.
Julie Inman Grant, Australia's e-Safety commissioner, said the company will not store the images permanently as after they are processed into a hash, the code is all that will remain.
In a trial in Australia, Facebook asked people anxious that their intimate pictures might be posted by an ex partner to provide the images to Facebook, so that it knows to prevent them being uploaded in future.
Facebook says that the tools are developed in partnership with global safety experts, and is being used to keep people safe, and to build a supportive, inclusive community.
Prof Clare McGlynn, from Durham Law School, said that the United Kingdom should establish a similar organisation to Australia's e-safety commission. "It removes control and power from the perpetrator who is ostensibly trying to amplify the humiliation of the victim amongst friends, family and colleagues", she said.
The pilot has officially launched in Australia, and is going to roll out in the US, UK and right here in Canada. The potential victim will then be instructed to send the images to their own Facebook account via the platform's Messenger system.
According to the eSafety office, Facebook users who are concerned that an intimate image of them may end up online can complete an online form. It uses "cutting-edge" technology to prevent resharing of the images on its platforms, which includes Messenger and Instagram.
