Re: Please Help me to Understand

It is still encypted, but there would be two or more keys,

Your key that you use, and one or more backdoor keys that work too.

Most encryption for social media sites is transport encryption. It is asymmetric encryption such as TLS aka. SSL/https. The data is fed to the application on the backend in clear text, a backdoor could allow a copy of the clear data sent to the government as well as the real destination, i.e. the application server. It takes alot more computing power and money to wiretap data as a man in the middle.
