WhatsApp may share information with Facebook soon

Supposed screen of the latest beta version of the communicator shows the sharing option with the social network. Objective would be to improve the experience of using Facebook.

Not surprisingly, but the first solid evidence has emerged that WhatsApp will start sharing information with Facebook very soon. This is because the latest beta version of the communicator now includes an option that allows this to occur. The information is from the site Android Authority.

The site used as source the programmer Javier Santos, specializing in the development of Android applications. Santos posted on his Google+ profile images of the beta version of WhatsApp, which brings this option of sharing data between the communicator and the social network.

The justification for this would be to improve the experience of using Facebook (read make more money by selling data). However, it is important to mention that such sharing would only occur under the user's consent, as indicated on the screen itself. That is, you can disable this feature.

<p>This information sharing has been expected since Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014, for the exaggerated $ 22 billion. And if we consider that the communicator announced four days ago that he has stopped charging the user's $ 1 annuity, we can deduce that the social network needs to find other ways to make money from the app.</p><div class='code-block code-block-4' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>
