Michaela Zehara, 22, was going through her Instagram three years ago when an bearing her name, photo and phone started following her. Her gut was right. Minutes later, friends and family members started messaging her saying that the was ing photos of her naked body that she had shared with her boyfriend at the time. For a moment I was suicidal; death sounded a little bit more fun than this. Instagram took the images down in about 20 minutes, after Zehara and dozens of her friends had reported them.

But the damage was already done. It could happen again. He has that hanging round my neck. Zehara was the victim of revenge porn, a form of invasion of sexual privacy and online harassment where the perpetrator — usually a disgruntled ex-partner — posts or threatens to post intimate photos without consent, often with the aim of shaming the subject. To combat this problem, Facebook has built a team of about 25 people, not including content moderators, working full-time to fight the nonconsensual sharing of intimate photos and videos.

Each month, Facebook, which owns Instagram, has to assess about half a million reports of revenge porn and "sextortion," a source familiar with the matter said. They recounted a of missteps, including a poorly communicated pilot program inviting people to pre-emptively submit their nude photos to Facebook. And they wrestled with what all that means for developing tools to quickly and effectively take these images down. But she noted that the problem extends beyond the company. From hate speech and violence to terrorist propaganda and conspiracy theories, companies including Facebook, Google and Twitter are all trying to teach artificial intelligence how to identify objectionable material.

If Facebook can do that with revenge porn, it could revolutionize this battle. But its efforts so far show just how difficult this will be. The problem of revenge porn is not confined to Facebook, as images can be posted elsewhere on the web, on pornography sites, for example, and may appear in search engine . In , a man who operated one such site was sentenced to 18 years in prison in California.

There is no federal law criminalizing the nonconsensual sharing of intimate images, although 46 states have such laws. Everybody is going to see. While other platforms, such as Twitter, TikTok and Snap, prohibit users from posting intimate images, Facebook is alone in developing tools to prevent them from being shared in the first place. In November , Facebook launched a pilot in Australia inviting users to pre-emptively send the company their nude or intimate images. But some victims and support groups responded more positively. They saw the pilot as a way to claw back some control from people who threaten to share images.

You feel helpless and your sexual identity is ripped from your control. The negative response to the pilot made Facebook officials realize that they needed to know more about the problem. The following year, , Facebook launched a research program, detailed here for the first time, to explore how it could better support revenge porn victims and prevent images from being shared. Company researchers interviewed victim support groups in the U. They also interviewed five men and five women in the U. The victims and advocacy groups told researchers that the existing reporting process was confusing and insensitive, particularly at a time of high stress.

It changes how they view the world around them, causing them to live in fear and paranoia about what other information could be shared without their consent. Davis gave the example of a woman in India who reported a photo in which she was fully clothed in a pool with a fully clothed man. The consequences for victims can be extreme.

Some advocacy groups noted that their clients face honor killings, disownment by their family or physical abuse. Based on the research, Facebook has tried to train its artificial intelligence applications to recognize a wide variety of images as potential revenge porn. Artificial intelligence systems require large amounts of data to learn to distinguish images. As more images are reported, the AI may have a challenge in keeping up, but with more examples it may also get better. Roberts, an assistant professor at UCLA who studies commercial content moderation, said.

It was in April that Bowden discovered that nude images of her had been posted to a website known for sharing revenge porn. Bowden discovered that the only way to get her photos removed was to copyright them and then issue takedown notices to websites. But they started popping up on other sites like 4Chan and Discord, a chat platform for gamers. They had backgrounds in sex trafficking and child exploitation investigations, she said.

Bowden and other leaders of victim support groups consulted by Facebook want the social network to take a far more personal approach with victims. Victim support groups said that the language Facebook used did not convey the severity of the situation and at times could be perceived as victim blaming.

In response, Facebook has altered the language it uses on its site, in policy guidelines and in reporting tools, with the goal of making victims feel supported, not judged. Facebook has updated the reporting process to let victims file a revenge porn complaint in one simple , with clear instructions for how to gather the evidence Facebook needs to take action on a complaint. On the back end, the company has made this type of material a priority in queues for content moderation.

Now, anything flagged as revenge porn is treated with a similar level of urgency as content related to self harm. Two victims who spoke to NBC News said their photos had been shared by their harassers in group chats on Messenger to which they had no access. Amanda, 32, a stay-at-home mom from Lexington, Kentucky, said that even when her harasser did include her in a group chat, Facebook was not responsive.

A Facebook spokeswoman said that because Instagram shares the same policies and content reviewers as Facebook, it should be enforcing the rules evenly. However, neither Instagram nor Messenger have specific language in their reporting flows to allow users to flag content as revenge porn. After a rocky start, Facebook has expanded the tool that lets people submit their intimate photos pre-emptively to the U.

A Facebook spokeswoman said the tool will launch in additional countries in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America in the coming months. But for some victims, the prospect of sharing their intimate photos with anyone when they are feeling so vulnerable is terrifying. In the summer of , a disgruntled ex-partner of Nicole Brzyski's husband posted intimate photos of her and her husband, along with their names and other biographical details, to several sites dedicated to nonconsensual intimate imagery.

Brzyski, now a paralegal and an advocate for others who have experienced online abuse, has spent hours making takedown requests to these websites. We are already so uncomfortable and traumatized. I never did it because I was so afraid these photos would somehow be leaked again.

Who knows who is looking at them? Images submitted to Facebook are viewed briefly by a content moderator trained to deal with safety issues to ensure they are in fact intimate images before they are converted into digital fingerprints that can be used to prevent any subsequent posting of the image on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger.

The process is similar to the one used to remove child sex abuse imagery from the web. Facebook deletes the original image seven days after converting it to the indecipherable fingerprint. In the U. ET : An earlier version of this article misstated who Nicole Brzyski said posted intimate photos of her and her husband online.
