You share messages your pictures, where you are and everything to your friends and the world. But sometimes you like send secret messages to your friends through the photos and nothing on Facebook can be secret. It’s a very open website. You want to prevent others from getting what you want to say to someone. This is not possible when use the general Facebook website. It does not let you do it.
There is an option for doing so. This is technically called JPEG Stenography. JPEG Steography is nothing but encoding a secret message with your photo which only the concerned person can read. Owen Campbell-Moore was the person who created a Google Chrome extension. It supports the message encoding in your photos. That means you must have Google Chrome for it.
