Controversy Arises as Facebook’s AI-Powered Sticker Tool Generates Disturbing Images

by | Oct 8, 2023

Facebook’s new sticker tool, powered by artificial intelligence (AI), is generating controversial and disturbing images. Users have been sharing stickers featuring naked celebrities, child soldiers, and even Alex Jones kissing a dog.

Facebook's AI-Powered Sticker Tool

The parent company, Meta, introduced this feature recently, allowing users on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp to create stickers using AI-generated images based on written prompts. However, some users have expressed concern about the content and its implications.

Critics, such as 3D artist Pier-Olivier Desbiens, have raised questions about the tool’s lack of thoughtful consideration. They believe that the feature has been implemented without considering potential consequences. One user described the generated images as “completely unhinged.”

Meta has yet to comment on the matter or address the concerns raised. The AI sticker tool is currently available to a limited number of English-language users, and it is unclear if it will be rolled out to a wider audience.

Meta claims that billions of stickers are shared each month on their platforms, with the feature initially introduced in 2013. However, other AI-generated image tools, like OpenAI’s DALL-E 3, have implemented restrictions to prevent misuse, such as generating violent or real people-related content.

Meta acknowledges the potential for misuse of AI tools and assures users that they are implementing the new feature gradually, with a commitment to responsible AI use. They are actively working with policymakers, academia, civil society, and industry experts to improve safety and encourage responsible technology use.

Meta plans to continue refining and improving these features as technology advances and they gain insights into how people use them in their daily lives.
