“Software developed with Mark Zuckerberg’s support will allow third parties to monitor and suppress the visibility of posts.”
Interesting revelation in light of the fact that SafeJunction technology is designed to accomplish a similar result, but with user CONTROL over the viewing rather than a third-party government or authority. Sounds like a money grabbing sellout of individual privacy. But that’s probably what a Chinese citizen would expect anyway. Right?
A SafeJunction privatized message could only be viewed by others who were pre-selected by the user/sender in advance. But if third-party surveillance was a matter of law, our technology would be illegal to use. Encryption would be illegal. Privacy would be unavailable.
What is the world coming to!
