- Reduce time of the message
Snapchat is a pioneer in using self-destruct messages, and soon Facebook took advantage of this idea. The company can further develop this idea in the future, the content not only automatically disappears after a certain period of time, but users can also delete them more easily if desired.
The Internet is not a really safe place, especially for children or sensitive people. So after all, adding encryption and reducing the lifetime of the data, though, they are specific and obvious steps that Facebook can take, but this makes Facebook safe.
The company can start by reducing negative interactions online (such as stoning, etc.) by adding tools to help users prevent people from targeting them. Reducing the lifetime of the content also helps in part.
There are clear benefits for both users and Facebook when this ecosystem becomes secure. Finally, if users feel that Facebook is safe, they will return and continue to use it more often.
- Link products
Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg described a world where you can text a person on Messenger and the recipient can receive messages through Instagram. This shows that Facebook wants to link all their products. The fact that messaging applications can work together plays a big role in this process.
Suppose you have a Facebook account, post photos on Instagram, message your friends on WhatsApp. If these applications link, you will not have to switch to reply to someone’s specific message on a given application. However, this plan is still quite vague.
- Database security
The encrypted data can still be hacked, but the goal is to ensure that the physical data is as secure as possible. With Facebook, this means being careful about where to store data. For example, Facebook cannot store data in countries where human rights policies have not developed enough or there is no freedom of speech.
This is really hard, not to mention that countries always have policy changes, so it will affect Facebook’s data center.
