Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke about his vision of the future social network as a platform for which confidentiality is one of the main values.

According to him, Facebook decided not to build data centers and not to store information in countries where the rights to privacy and freedom of speech are not respected. At the same time, the company is aware of the fact that this decision may lead to the blocking of the social network in individual countries. But Facebook is ready for this compromise.

To protect user privacy, Facebook plans to implement end-to-end encryption for all messages and calls. According to Zuckerberg, in a world where new threats to cybersecurity constantly appear, users need additional protection.

In addition, in the coming years, it is expected that Messenger and WhatsApp will be the main ways people communicate on Facebook. Therefore, the company will focus on making these applications faster, simpler, more private and secure, including end-to-end encryption.

Zuckerberg also believes that the best way to secure data is to not store it. WhatsApp no ​​longer stores encryption keys, and in the future other Facebook services will be transferred to the same model.

Earlier, Mark Zuckerberg said that he sees his task for 2019 as a public discussion about the future of technology.
