Social media website
Facebook has introduced new tools in India that will help protect the profile picture from being downloaded and shared. The move may reduce misuse of photographs. The profile picture on Facebook lets people find each other and connect with each other. However, not everyone considers the profile picture safe. Facebook researchers found that some women do not seem safe to share their profile picture as their face looks as they fear their photo may be misused. New Delhi-based Centre for Social Research and Learning Links Foundation has developed innovative tools with many Organisations.

“We are introducing new tools which can download and share the profile picture which people in India will control more in this context. “Soman,” also said We are also exploring the ways through which people can easily add designs with the profile picture. Our research has found it helpful to stop the abuse. “We will start it in other countries soon,” he said, based on the experience found in India. “The people who use Facebook after joining the new tool won’t be able to download, share the profile picture and send it to another place. It won’t be able to tag you with your friends on Facebook.
