Facebook Making the Move to HTTPS

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Facebook is looking to make its social network more secure by moving users to HTTPS.

The platform provides increased standards by allowing data to stay encrypted, even as it’s transferred.

While the move was announced in May of last year, it didn’t begin implementation until last week.

“This week, we’re starting to roll out HTTPS for all North America users and will be soon rolling out to the rest of the world,” stated the social network’s Shireesh Asthana in a post via the company’s Developer Blog.

Online presences which previously made the move to HTTPS include the likes of Twitter and Gmail.
