Facebook and Instagram view 500,000 reports of revenge porn every month, an anonymous initiate tells NBC News . Facebook, owner of both social media, has a team that has to prevent the spread of revenge porn.

Revenge porn is the distribution of sexually tinted images without the permission of the person on it. The term originated after images were distributed by exes of victims who wanted to take revenge in this way.

In conversation with NBC News , Facebook chief Antigone Davis tells how the company is trying to combat revenge porn. Among other things, Facebook develops algorithms that must try to recognize these types of images, so that they cannot be uploaded at all.

An example from Davis shows that algorithms cannot be fully covering. She gives the example of an Indian woman sitting in a swimming pool with a group of men. In the photo, each person was wearing clothing, but according to Davis the image was in this case inappropriate in Indian culture.

Facebook sued in the Netherlands in 2015 for revenge porn

Facebook was sued in the Netherlands in 2015 after revenge pornography was distributed through the social medium. The then 21-year-old Chantal wanted to enforce through the courts that Facebook would tell who had uploaded a sex video to the platform.

Chantal's ex had made the video, but denied that he had uploaded the video to Facebook. The judge then ruled that Facebook had to hand over the data.

For this, an independent third party had to gain access to the servers, from which an IP address emerged. The investigation eventually broke down.
