WhatsApp beta shows features directly related to Facebook
As we know, the CEO of the messaging application WhatsApp informed that customers will no longer be charged the annual subscription of the service, € 0.99, making millions of regulars happy to the app happy, however, the next move that will be carried out by the developers of the famous program may not please so much users, like the ones you might expect.
Through the latest beta version of the WhatsApp application for Android devices, a line has been found in the code where the possibility of sharing user data with the social network is foreseen Facebook. In practice, this means that the data of the users of the WhatsApp application can be shared with Facebook, to be more exact, the line to which we refer indicates the following: «to improve (your) Facebook experiences «. Also, as we know, the news of the beta versions of WhatsApp for Android, also usually reach iOS devices.
WhatsApp could allow sharing contacts with Facebook and vice versa
In principle, if this feature becomes official, the user must be able to choose for himself whether or not to share his data to improve the experience of using the social network, Facebook. This option, in principle, seems to be disabled by default and so far It is not known what data will be shared between both services, probably it is the list of contacts with the goal of being able to easily get the profiles in Facebook of each of the contacts and vice versa.
In addition, this data seems to also be shared by those WhatsApp users who do not have a profile on Facebook. Fortunately, This option can be configured (activated / deactivated) manually through the application settings anytime.
Of course, it is a true direct "contact" between the WhatsApp application and Facebook, after the social network acquired the multiplatform messaging program, something that many users spoke since the arrival of the news of this union.
Do you think that share user data between WhatsApp and Facebook Is it an advantage or a disadvantage?
