Default Facebook asks users for nude photos in project to combat revenge porn

Facebook is asking users to send the company their nude photos in an effort to tackle revenge porn, in an attempt to give some control back to victims of this type of abuse.
Well I certainly can't see any problems with that idea...

(The idea is to create a hash from the photos, and then prevent anybody else uploading a photo which hashes to the same value. I assume that these days there must be ways to hash the image so that it comes out the same even if you crop, resize, tweak the colour and so on - otherwise that would be trivial to get around anyway. It does say that there are, but I wonder how reliable that is?)
