Are You Privacy Focussed?
If you scanned through the recent Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg blog post, we are heading towards “a privacy-focused communications platform” he went on to state that “Today we already see that private messaging, ephemeral stories, and small groups are by far the fastest growing areas of online communication.”
If the future of communication increasingly shifts to private, encrypted services, what impact does this have on organisations currently publicly sharing messaging on platforms? Do they find themselves locked out of the future?
Depending on your viewpoint it can be viewed as a step in the right direction or another data-collection from Facebook?
With European GDPR laws recently coming into play and many US states looking to implement stricter data privacy laws, it seems like this story has some distance to go.
Many countries around the world are adopting or developing GDPR style approach to data privacy. It understandable that changes in privacy mean that some services and therefore content will become blocked in some countries.
In the Facebook post, it comments on ‘Reducing Permanence’ and states “We increasingly believe it’s important to keep information around for shorter periods of time. People want to know that what they share won’t come back to hurt them later, and reducing the length of time their information is stored and accessible will help.”
These critical issues concern the future of the internet for everyone.
