This Critique and Revision serves as a design solution for the ethical concerns of privacy within Facebook Messenger. As our daily lives are now almost entirely online due to COVID-19, we must pay special attention to privacy concerns, which is what led me to the redesign of this app. As I returned to classes after the beginning of the pandemic, I was adjusting to our new virtual environments and becoming aware of just how much of our lives are exposed through social media. I decided to redesign Messenger with hopes of reimagining how we can still maintain privacy while online.
This re-design is super cool, Christina, and I love your attention to ethical issues surrounding privacy on these apps!
