Something like the Internet Archive?

Except nobody goes to the Internet Archive unless they're looking for something extremely specific. The benefit of Facebook as a platform is that you can reach a wide audience in a place where often going to the authorities means either jack squat or your incarceration or worse.


I meant to say the Internet Archive can be used as the 'funded "journalism" archive' that GP mentioned.

I did think that was one possibility - but this needs to be funded and supported by the tech firms themselves not handed off and forgotten.

I can imagine a way of referencing these redacted images that facebooks just puts up a big red sign and a warning - but that still allows people to find it and it acts as a full web citizen.
