“Facebook Plans New Emphasis on Private Communications,” The Wall Street Journal, March 7, 2019.  Facebook looks to change focus from providing a platform for people to share information publicly to one where the public can communicate privately.  Through Facebook.

Color me dubious.  Facebook’s history when handling the privacy of other peoples’ information has been a bit, well, spotty.

What does it say when you trust Facebook to protect the privacy of your communications?  Is that a failure of Governance?  What rules will they (a) say they follow and (b) follow?
