HTTPS connections have clear benefits over HTTP ones. With HTTPS you get a higher level of security because data sent and received is encrypted; 3rd party services cannot decrypt this data and learn about your activities.  Also you or anyone can decide you do not want to use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) certificates and purchase your own for more secure communications within your company or friends.
