EU has been very tough for the rules on internet privacy and Ireland online watchdog agency has asked more information from Facebook for the possible integration of WhatsApp, Messenger app of Facebook and image sharing app Instagram. It’s already in motion to halt the program if further information about this merger isn’t provided.
Integration of these apps means 100% sharing of users’ data and behavior throughout the system seamlessly and it will provide the company more accurate picture of every user on any of these platforms. Many users use these three platforms simultaneously. There’s no information on how this information will be shared between the apps and how the information gathered will be used by the company for its marketing by protecting the online privacy of the users as well.
