Some of the interesting points in the article include a list of privacy-oriented questions to ask yourself when developing a new feature, providing useful audit logs for retrospectives, and minimizing abuse from newly created accounts by restricting access to the service’s capabilities. All of these points taken into consideration make it harder for abuse to occur, making the service a better environment for its users.
