All the more reason to use encryption technology like Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging (http://www.cypherpunks.ca/otr)! I've been working on an OTR-compatible iOS app called ChatSecure (https://chatsecure.org) that is capable of encrypting your Facebook chats (or any other XMPP service).

The problem with all of these services is you have to trust them as well. The most secure message is the one not sent.

True, but if you want to communicate you need to trust something at some point.

Right but why trust them anymore than the others.
