Blogger Play and Private Images

Blogger Buzz says:

"Blogger Play will show you a never-ending stream of images that were just uploaded to public Blogger blogs. You can click the image to be taken directly to the blog post it was uploaded to, or click “show info” to see an overlay with the post title, a snippet of the body, and some profile information about the blogger who uploaded it. We also wrote a Blogger Play FAQ with more information.

A caveat: we use many techniques, including Google’s SafeSearch technology, to keep the images clean. Nevertheless, on rare occasions an image that you may find vulgar or obscene will slip through our algorithmic filters. Google does not pre-screen the images that appear in Blogger Play, nor is it responsible for their content. To report a terms of service violation, you may fill out this contact form."

This is actually a pretty cool stream of images. You can click "show info" and see which blog it comes from as well. For the sex blogger, it raises some interesting questions though. "SafeSearch" doesn't address privacy concerns, or the borderline images. Do images that are uploaded to private blogs go through this image stream as well? (I'm going to try to run a test with a friend soon, but haven't had the chance yet.)

As a reminder, Blogger already consolidates all pictures loaded into Picassa albums. If you make a mistake a load an HNT with your face, then you might want to remember to go to the album to delete it there as well.

In the meantime, it's another case of use caution with blogger.
