I have always had my doubts about the long term future of Facebook and their decision to go encrypted with its shocking knock-on effect of allowing paedophiles and terrorist a free run on their platform confirms my view.
Under the guise of protecting its user’s privacy, Facebook are adopting end-to-end encryption which means, according to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, that conversations can no longer be monitored.
Quite why their demographic - basically old dears talking about their grandchildren and supplying the odd photo of their cat - would care is quite beyond me.
Police however say the change will blindfold them in their investigations into child sex abuse. It will have the same effect on terrorists who will know their exchanges can no longer be monitored.

The Home Office tried to change the mind of the Facebook titans. That didn’t work so now Home Secretary Priti Patel is backing an aggressive ad campaign on newspapers, radio and TV to alert the public to what is happening on this social media platform.
Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook chief executive, admits that it will be easier to share child images with his new plan but believes encryption will ‘’keep people safe from hackers and criminals.’’
That may be true but surely Mr Zuckerberg, who is a dad himself, will not want his or his company’s legacy damaged by Facebook being known as either the paedophile’s friend or the terrorist’s friend.
Could I suggest you put pressure on your mum and dad to come off Facebook.
Zuckerberg doesn’t seem to understood emotional pressure but I’m certain will understand financial ones.
