Mark Zuckerberg also focus on privacy, he said,

This privacy-focused platform will be built around several principles:

Private interactions. You should have simple, intimate spaces where you have complete confidence that what you say and do is private.

Encryption. Your private communications should be secure, and end-to-end encryption prevents anyone -- including even us -- from seeing what you share.

Reducing permanence. You shouldn't have to worry about what you share coming back to hurt you later, so we won't keep around messages or stories for longer than necessary.

Safety. You should expect we'll do everything we can to keep you safe on our services, within the bounds of an encrypted service. So we're taking the time to get this right upfront before we ship this platform.

Interoperability. You should be able to use any of our apps to reach your friends, and you should be able to communicate across our networks easily and securely.

And finally, secure data storage. You should expect that we won’t store sensitive data in countries where it might be improperly accessed because of weak rule of law or governments that can forcibly get access to your data.

Over the next few years, we're going to rebuild more of our services around these ideas. There are a lot of open questions and real tradeoffs on important social issues, so we're committed to working openly on this and consulting with experts and governments as we go, he said.
