WhatsApp committed blunders by not informing their users of the forced policy changed before rolling it out. This wasn't appropriate and just too bad
For now at least. But soon that will change as well. Since FB has a record of saying one thing then doing the other.
If the previous date was Feb 8 and the new date is May 15, they're not moving the date forwards but backwards lol.
Who wrote this blog post? I wonder if TheVerge made the same mistake.

What happened here was WhatsApp realized their mistakes and now trying to correct the blunders when the company noticed that users like me have moved on to Telegram

As you quoted, it clearly says that we have to agree to the new terms to continue using the app. Otherwise, you will lose your access to your account.
Onething I don't know, if we don't agree to the new term, and we also do not delete our account, what will happen then?
WhatsApp caused the misinformation by themselves because the company should have sorted out the advice from their users before rolling out a forced agreement. A panic and rushed statement without consent of their users, myself planned to move on with Telegram or Signal

We don't even give a damn about servers.
The thing is more about, why should our big data be combined? And when exactly did it combine? And did they take our permission before this?
Because, last I checked in 2016, they gave a 30 day window to escape combining data with FB, on which I withdrew my consent to allow data merge.
My last accepted terms are those from 2014, before Whatsapp purchase. So, when did the company ask me exactly, before merging the data?
I still get friend recommendations based on people I chat on whatsapp with. Why? Can anyone justifying FB explain this to me??
I'm sure this company did something illegal...
Some people are moving to other apps after one app got all the info from them, causing their data to be scattered over even more companies that have the same business model.
Without strict goverment regulation other companies will do the same what people fear whatsapp is doing.
"Anyway, Facebook isn't changing its policy. The company is stressing the new changes are only relevant to those who interact with Business accounts and don't impact other users."
So, which version is to be believed people?
This is for catching spammers. Whatsapp is now filled with betting, loaning and tons of illegal spammers, some are business use also, they did not use the WhatsApp for business.
So now with this new rule, they can map back to Facebook and catch these people
For normal people, it means little.. come on.. you already share so much on FB. Whats the diff?
That is why I use LINE, the video quality 10 times better and you can send pictures at full resolution plus the stickers are cool 😎
Credibility lost for once is lost forever.
How come every now and then some Indian's Whatsapp chat is leaked?
Whatsapp has a lot of explanation to do, if it claims that "no one, not even whatsapp can read the sent messages".
Secondly, the author's caim that many were panicked because they didn't know Whatsapp belongs to FB is not accurate. Whatsapp has been informing users from time to time, including with the text "from FACEBOOK" on its app.
The problem is that we don't want our payments and other data to be combined with profile data from FB. As you claim the update won't change anything of it, then as a user, I have a right to ask, What is changing? Why're we required to agree to these terms then?
Have the changes occurred before our agreement, then its the company at fault, not us.
And why are they combining the big data about us, whether it was done in 2016 or 20? We don't want it, isn't the intention clear?
Best is to make Whatsapp payable again, but that's what they don't want to do. They know they'll get erased.
I dare them to make Whatsapp payable again. In fact, I encourage. Then all these tomdickharrys on my whatsapp will move to signal and telegram.
Too smart becomes damn stupid desition boss fb .2,4billion user WhatsApp, now signal 11 million users, telegram 88 million users, 15 th may how many users Whatsapp?, Just see signal and telegram, if telegram has reach 100million users next week.... Wow it's a big threat for WhatsApp, if signal has the same features like WhatsApp....wow it's ready users to delete account WhatsApp.
The funny thing is that.... It's okay to collect your data if it's US, platform, but not okay if China does, so any suspect and blacklist Huawei, then Xiaomi? Or just can't handle the rivalry actually?)))) US government is funny as hell)
Delete Facebook & WhatsApp. Now planning to delete Instagram soon. Telegram Here I come.
Why would Whatsapp want to monitor my battery percentage. Maybe to deliberately drain my batterygate. Doesn't make sense. I need an explanation from Whatsapp or I'm never returning for good.
