WhatsApp is at the center of a global scandal due to the announcement that it will share data with Facebook. If you do not accept it, your account will be closed. Now we have a new announcement.
The changes are the same, the terms are the same, the deadline has only been moved to May 15th.
Several critics have interpreted WhatsApp’s recent announcement that it will share data with Facebook as an attempt by the app to share more users’ personal data with its parent company, Facebook, which bought WhatsApp in 2014. Thus, the ads will be more targeted, and Facebook will learn more about users. .
However, app representatives claim that they only share with Facebook the data that users share with various companies that work on WhatsApp, such as online stores. According to them, the change aims to help companies better communicate with their customers through this platform.
