Two years later, in a move that is rankling some of the company’s more than one billion users, WhatsApp will soon begin to share some member information with Facebook.
WhatsApp said on Thursday that it would start disclosing the phone numbers and analytics data of its users to Facebook. It will be the first time the messaging service has connected users’ accounts to the social network to share data, as Facebook tries to coordinate information across its collection of businesses.
At the end of the day Facebook needs to start making it’s money back from the deal when it bought WhatsApp for $16 Billion. Was not surprise that WhatsApp was going to start sharing info with Facebook. I’m a user of the both platform, but like how WhatsApp is fighting for privacy in communications. But it’s business as usual.
