Facebook Admits: It Scans All Messages And Photos You Send On Messenger

Earlier this week, in an interview with Vox, Mark Zuckerberg tried to answer some hard questions put in front of him. In the same process, he ended telling about the ethnic cleansing issue in Myanmar and how Facebook detected people’s sensational messages sent via Messenger.

This sparked some obvious questions regarding Facebook’s Messenger-related data policies. Now we have answers as a result of Facebook’s statements given to Bloomberg.
The company told that it scans the Messenger conversations of all users to curb abuse on the social network. However, the company doesn’t use this private data for advertising purposes.

As per the content policies of the company, all content must be treated with same guidelines. So, all messages need to be scanned and automated tools are employed to flag a message or picture for review.

Explaining further, the company told that it needs to scan links as well to eradicate the threat of malware. Similarly, by scanning pictures, it aims to detect and flag child pornography.

In the wake of recent revelations, Facebook has also come up with its updated privacy policy. The new policy tries to explain the data usage in a more transparent manner.

“We explain the services we offer in a language that’s easier to read,” an official blog post reads. It also talks about a feedback collection process that’ll let you share what you think about the new changes.

Moreover, it has also been made clear that Instagram and Messenger apps follow the same data policy and content review rules.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)   Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.
