Mark Zuckerberg: A totally different, more private Facebook is in the works

Why We Should Be Skeptical of Mark Zuckerberg's New Commitment To Privacy Zuckerberg Announces Big Changes To Facebook. Here’s What People Should Expect

Privacy-focused communication will be the future of social networking CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has declared.

"Some people want to store their messages forever and some people think having large collections of photos or messages is a liability as much as it is an asset", Zuckerberg told the AP.

Zuckerberg claimed that over "the next few years", Facebook intends "to rebuild more of our services around these ideas", however, not everyone was convinced. This is something that has been sorely lacking from the platform as now constituted.

Mark Zuckerberg's recent announcement about making Facebook a private and encrypted communication channel revealed the new direction he aims set out on. This means that members will have a say in whom they communicate with, and any conversations will be known only to those who are members of a particular group.

Essentially, Zuckerberg plans to integrate Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram direct messages to build a kind of single, end-to-end messaging system (which we've actually known-about since January). "We want to give people a choice so they can reach their friends across these networks from whichever app they prefer". This will prevent older messages from coming back to haunt members.

Zuckerberg said encrypted messaging would also help the safety of government dissidents and others who harbour controversial views.

In his 3,200-word post, Zuckerberg promised that encryption will be one of Facebook's main pillars going forward - even going as far as to confirm Facebook will not store sensitive data in countries with weak records on human rights, like Russian Federation and China, and that upholding this core principle may mean that its services could get banned in some countries. Integration could make it much more hard, if not impossible, to later separate out and spin off Instagram and WhatsApp as separate companies. "In the previous year, I've spoken with dissidents who've told me encryption is the reason they are free, or even alive", he says with a great deal of chutzpah-Facebook has only just been caught out using phone numbers, which people submitted to lock down their accounts' security, as data to make those people easier to identify on the network.

This change is because he now believes "the future of communication will increasingly shift to private, encrypted services where people can be confident what they say to each other stays secure". WhatsApp already has that security feature, but Facebook's other messaging apps don't. Greenfield says that this space is now controlled by Apple's iMessage and Snapchat. The German competition authorities have already warned Facebook about its latest integration moves, which will be illegal in the European Union without clear, voluntary consent from users. "Upholding this principle may mean that our services will get blocked in some countries, or that we won't be able to enter others anytime soon". "If we can help move the world in this direction, I will be proud of the difference we've made". "But if we do a good job in serving the need that people have, then there will certainly be an opportunity" to make even more money.
