"Overall, we've made it easier to find what you're looking for and get to your most-used features".

"I know we don't have the strongest reputation on privacy right now", he said. "But I'm committed to doing this well", the Facebook founder and CEO said, all smiles as he outlined a product roadmap for his "privacy-focused social platform" at the F8 developer conference in San Jose, California, on Tuesday. It is not known when Messenger will get end-to-end encrypted messaging, and it was unclear whether Instagram, which too has an in-built messaging service, would get such a feature in the future, considering that the growth of the app has outpaced even that of Facebook's.

Facebook Dating: The company announced its dating service is all set to be launched in 14 new countries.

Facebook is cultivating groups as it shifts toward relying more on users to help police content and prevent harassment. If two users add each other on to their secret crush list, they will be privately matched in a Tinder-esque fashion.

Republican concern could doom Trump's Fed pick Moore

For Messenger, this comes in the form of end-to-end encryption by default for communications, including not just text but also shared locations, video communications and more.

The new design, released as Facebook opened its annual developers conference, will give users more options for private and group connections. It also wants to make it easier to connect businesses to potential customers by adding lead generation templates to Ads Manager. Facebook is now testing the feature and is expected to roll it out globally later this year. The new version also encourages private interactions within groups-part of Zuckerberg's vision to make the social network the "digital equivalent of a living room". Now he is promising a new kind of company that is all about privacy, with some dating features thrown in for fun.

Facebook's redesigned mobile app went live Tuesday, while users will see the updated website in a few weeks.

But it remains to be seen if Zuckerberg's and his legions of partners' take on privacy matches the expectations of nearly a third of the world's population - about 2.38bn people - who use the Facebook family of platforms. So, going forward, Messenger users will be able to communicate with WhatsApp and Instagram users directly within the Messenger app. Now Facebook Dating is launching in more places, including the United States by the end of the year, according to the company. Similar to most of the features, this feature will also roll out later this year. Opting into the Meet New Friends feature will allow Facebook users to meet others that they share a community with like a school, office or city.
