Geektastic: Not actually ever having taken any, this would be one thing I can safely ignore!

 

Ah, but that's not the issue. The question is: Have you ever *had* any taken?

 

Of course, if they've been taken without your knowledge, or you don't have a copy, then you're still screwed.

 

Maybe FB should apply their face-recognition technology to this, so you could ask that any photos with your face on them not be shared by your ex. Wouldn't help if you had particularly recognisable pink bits though. And lots of people who would recognise them.

"Nothing to hide, nothing to fear" seems a rather apt aphorism. Interpreted quite literally in this case.

But who hasn't done stupid things when young and silly and sure you were with "the one".

While you haven't done such a thing, what about your neice/nephrew, grandchildren etc.

This is the same kind of technology used by tineye.com, I guess, which can recognise cropped and otherwise edited versions of an image. e.g. searching for SaltyNZ's avatar finds 3734 variants.

 

I wonder how accurate the "digital footprint" is? i.e. if it's *really* accurate, then it could be used to regenerate something quite similar to the original.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It would be interesting what mine comes up as... It's a common picture, but mine was actually taken in my lounge, from a t-shirt.

I'm at an age where you'd only dare take such a photo in pitch blackness.
If my last girlfriend before my present wife of many decades wanted to post a revenge porn photo of me - I'd be bloody well thrilled.

This sums up the flaw with the 'I've got nothing to hide' argument. Just because YOU have nothing to hide, doesn't mean I or others don't.

Those who say such things probably have poor memory.

They would have to be have been done by someone using concealed cameras. Rest assured no person has ever taken that kind of image of me with my knowledge. Fortunately, I grew up long before digital cameras were a twinkle in anyone's eye, so the sort of images teenagers apparently take and send to one another today would have had to go through the local chemist for processing and if there was ever a way to dampen someone's ardour, it is the thought of the minilab operators in Boots laughing at you nekkid.

Not an awful idea to combat the spread of photos you don't want shared, but heavily reliant on trust - and who the **** trusts facebook?

 

 

 

I can also see people uploading other people's photos to try and get them shut out of facebook, so that opens a whole new can of worms.

There's one born every minute. (Actually, I think it's far more frequently than that.)





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill
