Facebook's pivot comes at a time when the world's largest social media network (with over 2.4 billion users) runs the risk of being banned by governments, fined by law enforcement officials, and even discarded by users whose private data has been abused and tampered with over time. Most of the other principles are more generalized ideals, painting a picture that balances legal and moral requirements with customer security and privacy as Facebook works to redevelop its products with those concerns in mind.
In the Facebook founder's statement, he argued that certain governments demand access to individuals' private data information. "This is the future I hope we will help bring about", wrote Zuckerberg.
Encryption and disappearing posts also favor Facebook; it would take pressure off Facebook to police the services if the company removes itself from storing the communications, Mallin says. End-to-end encryption prevents anyone - including us - from seeing what people share on our services. He said the social platform would spend the coming years assuring that its WhatsApp, Instagram, Messenger, and Facebook content is encrypted so that outsiders, and even Facebook, can not read it. Here's what he thinks a privacy-focused social network could look like.
It's worth pointing out that Zuckerberg never said his company is going to stop tracking what users do or stop analysing user actions or user data in order to advertise against them.
He says: "People want to be able to choose which service they use to communicate with people".
"People should be able to use any of our apps to reach their friends, and they should be able to communicate across networks easily and securely".
In a Wednesday note, the Facebook CEO outlined a new plan to build a "privacy-focused" messaging and social networking platform. That means Facebook still gets information about your app-related activities, even if you don't have a Facebook account or if you're signed out.
Facebook's now-explicit transition from public square into private portal shouldn't be too big a shock; it's a shift that's been increasingly telegraphed by the platform's constant addition of functional gewgaws like payments, games, and commerce options from food delivery to hailing rideshares. People are more cautious of having a permanent record of what they've shared. All tech companies - including Apple and Facebook - have data centres in several parts of the world. Stories already expire after 24 hours unless you archive them, and that gives people the comfort to share more naturally. "A holistic privacy solution throughout the social media construct that both recognizes the advertising revenue-based models, and equally holds consumers' right to privacy paramount, will be of benefit to all". Zuckerberg says that Messages, which he says will intermingle aspects of instant messaging and SMS and store all conversations forever, isn't email.
