The main factor of a public blockchain is that no one controls the information which is on the blockchain or the laws of the blockchain. No member can the change the protocols of the blockchain according to the users and the information contained on the blockchain.

Therefore the users of a public blockchain can put their complete trust in a third party in order to use the blockchain and any users of the public blockchain can trust the blockchain.

Private Blockchains

The private blockchains are blockchains which are operated by an organization.This is only accessible to individuals who has been granted the permission to use the blockchain by its proof. Private blockchains are databases which are showcased as a distributed ledger.
