Uploading another person's intimate pictures seems not unknown amongst teenagers - either out of spite or stupidity. Are all the teenagers going to pre-emptively have their own pictures hashed - just in case they "escape" though someone else?

Would that make Facebook guilty of handling such apparently under-age pictures? Would Facebook report the owner to the police? Apparently such digital selfies are still illegal - especially if transferred over a network.
