One solution is to stop taking naked photos of each other, or sharing intimate snaps.The best solution would be if abusive scumbags could stop being so awful.In doing so she has made some good points regarding the approach taken, but also revealed some limitations.Essentially, the system works like this: if you suspect someone has copies of photos of you naked and is going to leak them on Facebook, you can preemptively upload those snaps to a private chat area of the network where a trained staffer will verify the photo, and generate and store a digital signature of the image.To give its approach a bit of welly, Facebook rolled out quotes from people it has been working with on the pilot Down Under.Not surprisingly, they are all very supportive of Zuck & co's design.In such cases, you can understand Facebook's approach, and we're assuming here that when a user deletes the submitted photos they truly are deleted forever.And that the reviewer is honest and doesn't keep a copy or otherwise exploits their rather powerful position.

If the image has been altered enough – such as rotated or cropped or flipped or had some awful words scribbled across it – shared revenge porn may bypass the filters, and the victim will have submitted their pictures in vain.
It is possible to generate a robust set of signatures for each image: each picture could be reduced to a basic low color, low resolution form with the center area of the frame hashed to potentially defeat a miscreant's attempts to evade the filters by cropping, defacing or color washing the snap.
