Mark Zuckerberg discovers privacy


#1

“But can Facebook reform its 15-year legacy as devourer of all things private with a single sweeping, underedited screed from its copycat visionary and dark-pattern technocrat?

Fuck no, of course it can’t.”

That guy is a notorious liar!
BTW: many yars back a rumor was circulating that FB is a child of a 3 letter agency…

In my opinion this analysis by Ben Thompson is spot on as well:

He’s basically arguing that an encrypted messenger platform is an additional "privacy cake that Facebook can have — and eat it“ because given their other platforms and the metadata from this new service they won’t have to change their business model significantly.

At the same time it’s a massive opportunity to grow and cement their dominance.
