The past three years haven't been easy for the world's largest social network. Facebook has been beset with scandals, largely self-inflicted and largely caused by years of negligent behavior.

On Tuesday, at its F8 2019 developer's conference, the company attempted to chart a path forward by focusing on privacy and trust.

"I know that we don't exactly have the strongest reputation on privacy right now, to put it lightly," CEO Mark Zuckerberg said with an awkward grin on his face.

But he promises that's going to change.
