After involving in too many data scandals and facing disgrace, Facebook now vows towards the new direction. The social media giant reveals that it is proceeding to have a privacy-focused future. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, has promised to build a new messaging services that will secure the privacy of the user. The news arrives between the intense pressure the company is facing for handling user data safely. The tech giant and its executives have experienced strong inquiry to prove the company’s dedication to privacy. The news emerged on Wednesday from a blog post of Zuckerberg.
According to the post, Facebook currently does not have a sharp image for developing services to secure privacy. Besides, the platform always focused on offering a more open sharing service. The CEO added the company has repeatedly proved that it can grow to construct most wanted features. The most notable services include private messaging and stories. Those are one of the most wanted services by people. Zuckerberg scripted he hopes to have a chance to set a new standard for private communication platforms. He intends to unroll a feature that could automatically delete content. Another alternative of the strategy aims to archive the content over-time.
The lengthy blog post described a strategy to launch an end-to-end encryption technique in various services. So in the future, various messaging services like Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram may have the encryption method. Previously, the company announced that it intends to combine the trio messaging services. The CEO writes, he thinks about the future of the internet. He trusts a communication platform with a primary focus on privacy. As per Zuckerberg, the approach will become even more important than modern open platforms. Public social networking platforms have a predefined place in society, but there is a great opportunity ahead. In the upcoming years, the sites will have an ideal platform having a primary focus in user privacy. But Zuckerberg’s strategy does not address the actual problem, i.e., Facebook’s business model.
