Zuckerberg Shows New Plans to Improve Privacy on Social Media Platform in His Note
Facebook has always been the focus of media attention.
Facebook has always been the focus of media attention. According to reports, the company has been hiring engineers and other employees because of their secret blockchain project. Recently, the CEO of the company took to his “Notes” option on the website to discuss project progress.
According to CNBC, Mark Zuckerberg has described exactly how he intends to make a more “privacy focused” future for the platform, with a heavy focus on communications platforms.
Zuckerberg has discussed how the privacy of the platform will become more and more important in the coming years, which may be the node of the messaging service they are creating. The new service will include a combined platform between Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, to allow them to conduct private conversations. By combining the new services of these popular communication platforms, the main goal is to focus on user security and private communications.
In the post, Zuckerberg talks that how the communications industry will eventually turn to “private encrypted services” to ensure that content is secure but hidden. He added: “This is future, I hope we can help achieve this goal.”
It is undeniable that Facebook has little experience in building such security services because most of their work is directed at open sharing types of platforms. Despite this, Zuckerberg insists that the company has the ability to “develop” to create the services which consumers need.
If privacy security is what the Facebook platform is looking for, blockchain and cryptocurrency may be the best way to solve this problem. Although the transactions on the blockchain are completely transparent in number and address, the actual identity of the user is protected.
In addition, CNBC article describes that the current work on encryption projects can be applied to the monetization of private communications.

The United States Federal Reserve “fake economy has burst,” former presidential candidate Ron Paul has announced as money printing takes its balance sheet to $6.6 trillion.In a series of tweets on April 24, Paul became the latest critic to launch a scathing on U.S. economic policy present and past.Paul: swap central planning for sound moneyAccording to the pro-Bitcoin retired politician, neither coronavirus nor a brief uptick in stocks can hide the impact of the Fed’s actions. For him, Keynesian ideas such as market interventions and money printing are “un-American.”“The Fed’s fake economy has burst. The stock market, even if it rises, cannot hide the damage that has been done. The virus, now known to be less deadly than the seasonal flu, cannot act as a legitimate excuse either,” he wrote.Another tweet read:The un-American ideas of government micromanagement and Fed central planning of the economy have failed, and will continue to fail as long as they’re clung to. The time to rebuild with the American ideas of liberty and sound money has arrived.Paul’s comments come as the Fed’s balance sheet reaches…Apr 25, 2020
2020 has been a great year for the cryptocurrency markets so far, with Bitcoin and virtually all major altcoins posting sizeable gains. These gains, however, pale in comparison to those seen by ICON (ICX), which is a relatively small crypto that has been caught within a parabolic ascent over the past few days.This parabolic rally has led ICON into a key resistance region, and the crypto is showing signs of slowing down as the immense buying pressure that drove this massive rally begins to slow down. Importantly, ICX’s rally may offer some important intel into where other altcoins are going, and one analyst believes that it could signal the next “altseason” is imminent.ICON Hits Key Resistance as Parabolic Rally Slows and as Crypto Market Faces Turbulence At the time of writing, ICON is trading up nearly 40% at its current price of $0.516, which marks a massive climb from its daily lows of $0.33 that were set yesterday morning. It is important to note that ICX started its parabolic rally in late-January, which came close on the heels of an extended…Feb 5, 2020

Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Trump and Macron agreed to a detente in their trade spat. AP Photo/Evan Vucci France and the U.S. have managed to avoid turning their recent trade skirmish into a war – for now.The dispute involves France’s decision last summer to unilaterally reach outside the United States-French tax treaty framework to tax U.S. tech companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter. Calling the French tax an illegal trade practice, the U.S. vowed to retaliate with 100% tariffs on a broad range of French products. After talks in January, French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump appeared to reach a truce.
