SANFRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday said he believed secure private messaging would become more popular than open platforms, the latest sign that one of the companies that popularized social networking sees its future in more intimate online conversations.

“As I think about the future of the internet, I believe a privacy-focused communications platform will become even more important than today’s open platforms,” Zuckerberg wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
