Mainly the piece content is marked as the unique identifier, and also they will produce the same hash value. The same systems and techniques are used to identify the copyright protected files.

Facebook also mentioned that personal information would not be shared, though it did not mention that information is collected. The government still has the legal rights to find out the accounts and where the content has originated and other details.
