  • Posted to Privacy of Facebook Messenger, Aug 08, 2014

    As someone who worked on the Messenger team at one point I can say with confidence that articles like this one are nothing but naive scare-mongering.

    Facebook has messed up a few times in the past with privacy related issues so whenever anything related to terms and conditions comes up people love to skew what they read more to the negative side.

    If these kinds of permissions didn't exist you'd never be able to take photos, record voice or do almost anything really in the way of messaging or talking with your friends using the app. These kinds of permissions are just par for the course.

    We can look at this from a aesthetic perspective and appreciate how nice the icons and illustrations look, but in terms of news reporting conventions the news stories without photos lack any real sense of emotion or a greater context. Assuming of course the news website is reputable and simply doesn't just use ThinkStock imagery.

    Personally I'm really excited about this. Hopefully the main focus is still on the mobile experience, while having a web counterpart simply increases overall engagement.

    Fantastic work Jeff, I wouldn't be surprised if Etsy tried to acquire you and your work!

    It's amazing how modern digital design is becoming a collection of explicit copy-cats.

    There is nothing undignified with basing a product on something that already exists. But at least try to prioritize improving the foundation you started with.

    I really love this project but the typography and UI could really be re-worked.
