WhatsApp has announced a new policy that will include a section explaining how it shares data with other Facebook brands like Instagram. The new update has created an outrage on social media.
WhatsApp is a popular social media platform and has a huge number of users around the world, especially in Pakistan.
The tech giant collaborated with Facebook several months ago. Soon after that, users have been allowed to share WhatsApp stories on Facebook. However, users had no idea they will see advancement in it.
There isn’t much detail in WhatsApp’s new privacy section, but there aren’t any shocking revelations, either. The chat service is outlining the functionality you’d likely expect. Still, this is a reminder that WhatsApp is just one part of a larger Facebook ecosystem, and that your data won’t necessarily stay within the service — worth noting, even if your data won’t travel very far.
WhatsApp’s new policy is now trending on top on Twitter. Some Twitter users have expressed anger over the advancement, while some others have seen a sarcastic side of the story.
