The social network is making it impossible to repost or share intimate images of people thought to have been uploaded without their permission once they have been identified as such and removed.

The measure is being rolled out across Facebook, Messenger and Instagram but not WhatsApp. Campaigners welcomed the development. "It's a huge step forward," said Laura Higgins, founder of the UK's Revenge Porn Helpline. "Quite often these images are posted on social media as part of a domestic situation in which someone is trying to get at their target and their nearest and dearest. "One of the greatest challenges is to stop people re-uploading the content."
