WhatsApp And Facebook Merger – Here’s What Mark Zuckerberg Said About It 1

A few days ago I wrote a post about the plan Whatsapp and Facebook merger which means they want to merge their 3 Major Platforms – Messenger, Instagram and of course Whatsapp.

As soon as this news hit the web, a whole lot of rumours have been going around the internet, and most of it had to do with privacy.

If you remember clearly sometime in 2018, Facebook was faced with a major security breach which was related to the private data of users taken by Cambridge Analytica.

 

WhatsApp And Facebook Merger -Mark Zuckerberg Responds

WhatsApp And Facebook Merger – Here’s What Mark Zuckerberg Said About It 2

During a meeting with investors, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, explained the project that wants to create a cross-platform messaging system between Facebook, Instagram And Whatsapp.

At the moment, the project is still in its infancy and Facebook is still thinking about the various possible solutions, so it will be necessary to wait at least until 2020 before we get to see the first unified version of the messaging system.

According to Zuckerberg, the benefits include :  End-to-End encryption that will allow you to exchange messages with maximum security.

 

Also, it would help a user who uses the Marketplace on Facebook but has to use WhatsApp for the instant messaging part an easy unified way to do that without leaving any of the apps.

The idea is to create a system similar to Apple’s iMessage on SMS, with more features and the security given by end-to-end encryption.

Will Facebook Merge Whatsapp And Messenger?

If you are thinking about this right now – will facebook merge WhatsApp and Messenger?

Probably, yes but we would have to wait till 2020 to see what comes up but before then let me know if you think this is a good idea
