Facebook now focuses on encrypted and "ephemeral" messages, the Zuckerberg conversion

An important new blog post, Facebook increasingly shifts the focus from public posts to encrypted communications on its messaging app trio.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated this in a significant new blog post: Facebook is betting on encrypted messages and privacy In a 3,200-word letter, Zuckerberg states that encryption will be one of the keys to the future of Facebook and that the company willing to be banned in countries that refuse to make it work properly.

As I think about the future of the Internet, I believe that a privacy-focused communication platform will become even more important than today's open platforms, writes Zuckerberg. Today we already see that private messaging, ephemeral stories and small groups are by far the fastest growing areas of online communication.

<h2>Encrypted messages: the future of communication?</h2>
<p>Public social networks will continue to play their part, Zuckerberg adds, but he sees a great future opportunity built on <em>a simpler platform that focuses on privacy in the first place</em>. There will be a clear reversal for Facebook, which has become <strong>one of the richest companies in the world inventing new exotic methods of collecting personal data</strong> and allowing brands to sell advertising. Facebook has spent the last two years mired in data privacy scandals, starting with last year's revelations about Cambridge Analytica and continuing through the biggest data breach in the company's history.</p>
<p><em>I believe that the future of communication is increasingly moving towards private and encrypted services where people can be sure that what they say to each other remains safe and that their messages and content are not always available</em>, says Zuckerberg, e <em>this is the future that I hope we will contribute to achieve</em>, goes on.</p>
