Mark Dain Apparently Facebook now let you paste in your PGP key to have emails from them signed and encrypted! Maybe this leads to more adoption of PGP? facebook.com/notes...

Nick Gibson Turned on. Looks intriguing. Very interested to see how this pans out.

Simon Janes Your public key I assume? How many people are going to paste the wrong key?

Mark Dain Probably very few, PGP tends to be used by people who'd know better, which is somewhat unfortunate. It would be nice if it were more mainstream.

Martijn The same amount of people who otherwise would have put the wrong key online either way. I wouldn't worry about that too much.

Martijn I turned it on. We'll see what happens. This is also interesting as it puts my public key on the page that is arguably most linked to me personally: my Facebook profile.

Mark Dain They'll send you an email (Signed and Encrypted) with a confirm link. You can go one step further if you want and import their public key (linked in the blog post) to verify the signature.

John Olinda That's *very* interesting, although the problem I have with Facebook isn't the data being intercepted but with Facebook itself. Not enough benefit provided for the information and privacy it costs me. Still, it's a step.

Mark Dain It's unexpected move but perhaps it's to show Facebook are serious about your trust. I added my key because I think increasing usage of PGP can only be a good thing. I would love if we can shake the myth that encryption is only used by terrorists and paedophiles.
