(Reuters) - Facebook Inc Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg is planning to unify the underlying messaging infrastructure of its WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger services and incorporate end-to-end encryption to these apps, the New York Times reported on Friday.

 

The three services will, however, continue as stand alone apps, the report said, citing four people involved in the effort.

Facebook said it is working on making more of its messaging products end-to-end encrypted, and considering ways to make it easier for users to connect across networks.

 

"There is a lot of discussion and debate as we begin the long process of figuring out all the details of how this will work," a spokesperson said.

 

After the changes, a Facebook user, for instance, will be able send an encrypted message to someone who has only a WhatsApp account, according to the NYT report.

 

End-to-end encryption protects messages from being viewed by anyone except the participants in the conversation.

Farcebook considering ways to make their monstrous creation catch even more victims and be able to sushi users brains even more effectively. Social media such as these are little more than a negative unregulated serious addiction that gives the brain a dopamine hit when used like gambling/alcohol/sugar/illegal drugs etc. Should be renamed Instahit as imagine what all these people would do if they had to go cold turkey on social media for a week or two. I read an article about Instagram/Facebook on the BBC the other week and it was saying that many younger users are now just using messaging on these apps to talk/communicate with people they know as to phone them up and speak to them in the present is so "daunting"...blimey, so lost they are now.

Seems like a good business solution, integration, so cutting down on the administrative costs of controlling the content so that it falls within the liberal/left wing/Islamic appeasing policy of Farcebook and slowing down the dissemination of opposing dialogue to the current misrepresentation of facts. Truth and freedom of expression (with the laws of Libel and Slander)is often  termed  as 'Hate Speech'

None of the above, after the first comma, is true.

I suppose you mean 'truth' like Alec Jones' infowars?

Ya, like I really believe Facebook, of all the companies out there, is going to implement secure end-to-end encryption for its users...

 

More than likely, every time I would send an "encrypted" message, a copy of it would pop up on Zuckerberg's mobile phone screen... and equally possibly, somewhere in Russia!

We talk about the Chinese copying everything but in this instance I believe that this is an attempt by them to try and catch up to WeChat.  It won't work however unless they also integrate PayPal.  Then they might come close to all of the things that WeChat can do.
