Meta launches a standalone dedicated website for its AI powered image generator

Now using Meta’s AI image generator is easy than ever before. This is thanks to the fact that Meta has just launched a standalone dedicated website for its AI powered image generator ‘Imagine.’  Previously, you could use ‘imagine’ only through individual or group chats across Meta’s social media platforms.

Meta plans to make encrypting messages on Facebook and Instagram a default feature

Pretty soon you would no longer have to manually switch on encrypting feature while messaging someone on Facebook and Instagram. That’s because Meta is planning to make encrypting messages a default feature on both these social media platforms. Meta plans to launch this feature first on Facebook, later it plans to introduce it on Instagram after few weeks. Until now, only Meta’s instant messaging platform WhatsApp offers end-to-end encryption feature. By bringing the same feature on Facebook and Instagram, the company is trying to safeguard its users against hackers and cyber criminals. However, this move may not be welcomed by certain governments, especially the UK government, which had already urged Meta not to roll out encryption on its social media platforms.
