Changes To Facebook Privacy

In Facebook news, they are pivoting to privacy.

What this means is that they are moving into sharing updates to Stories and private messaging - features similar to what WeChat currently offers.

Why Facebook Privacy Pivoting Matters For Your Business

With Facebook pivoting to Stories and private messages, this could have big implications for your business.

Facebook has the ability to build powerful privacy tools. The question is whether they want to.

98% of its revenue currently comes from Facebook Ads.

If Facebook were to push users to private Facebook messages using Facebook Messenger and Stories updates, this could cause a seismic shift how you use Facebook.

For some business owners, they're just getting around to using Facebook to grow their business. Others have been there for a while and are now expanding to other social media platforms.

Over the next several months, Facebook has to make some big decisions on how they move forward. If they create stronger privacy tools, it could mean less revenue (and the need to find new models).

In the meantime, you can read more about Facebook privacy updates here.
