They ban Chinese apps saying that it is a national security concern now is this not a global security concern? To deceitful get over a billion people on your platform and then suddenly ask them to share their data or leave.
Time to quit whatsapp
Mark Zuckerberg was genius, now he is a looser. WhatsApp copied from blackberry messager, it's a carma, bbm closed because lost competitor WhatsApp, WhatsApp will the same will closed too, WhatsApp+FB+ads. There are better alternative application, like telegram. If mark Zuckerberg can still think smart, WhatsApp is just WhatsApp, no need FB & Instagram.
Tigolebitties, 08 Jan 2021I believe they already did but they introduced it publicly so they won't get caught and s... moreYes you are spot on... They came out publicly before they have to pay another hefty fine for hiding this fact.
annu630, 08 Jan 2021signal private messenger try it broDoes signal have video calls?
There is another winner Telegram is the best ever!
This is not acceptable as we all know Facebook is not capable to keep our data safe. We'd seen some incidents in past to keep that in mind.
LINE all the way and really funny to use
This is what happens when a previous standalone app is bought by another much larger company: the app either disappears or gets weakened to the point where users of that app will eventually leave. Time to find another chat app such as Signal or similar. Little wonder why calls are growing for FB or Google to divest their previously acquired apps.
Onlyme, 08 Jan 2021this zuckerma. is a rat!!! he cant control us!!! yes he can and he is. Too many ppl dreaming of being him and generally too much lobby in the US for ppl to really care about other people than them (and immediate family in fortunate cases).

You will not... moreSorry but that is not okay i closed my fb acount because their see fb owner are comunist so no i won share any feom my chat with them they wan to control the people millions waap user dont have fb and they dont going to accept
This is a good thing now ads can be pushed making user experience better to read interest based ads and buy more stuff.
Please give some time .
AnonD-972548, 08 Jan 2021Telegram is not the only one, but is the most used one aside Whatsapp.
Problem with this kin... moreAgreed
My main problem is not ads. But integration with FB and IG. Totally different things and collecting info from all 3 to push ads
So if I live in the EU, this won't really change anything?
Let Mark choke on his own whatsapp
