Facebook takes new steps to stop ‘revenge porn’ images from spreading

“Companies can have a tricky time censoring user content in general, said Danielle Citron, a Unviersity of Maryland law professor who has researched online harassment. In this case, Citron said, she believes that the parameters of what constitutes “revenge porn” makes defining what’s appropriate and what isn’t more clear than having to pass similar judgement on what is, for example, appropriate speech.

But, she said, she appreciated that Facebook is taking its time to respond to users’ concerns. “They’re moving slowly because they want to get it right, and don’t want to over-censor,” Citron said.”
