TEKNOKU.me – WhatsApp Plans to show ads on the application, a number of users threatened to delete their accounts.
WhatsApp itself has long avoided monetizing loyal users.
However, Facebook which is the owner of WhatsApp intends to present advertisements on the most popular messaging application.
Facebook’s plan to bring the ad features on WhatsApp will provide huge benefits, and get a lot of money from the ads that are displayed.
But this can also backfire for Facebook, the article after the ad feature was announced a few months ago, loyal WhatsApp users pose a threat to delete his application.
The protest by WhatsApp users began with the upload of social media observer Matt Navara on his Twitter account.
Matt shared a WhatsApp photo upload with a new feature, which contained advertisements at the Facebook Memory Summit conference in Berlin, Germany.
The upload got a reaction from a number of WhatsApp users. One commented “Good. I’m sure half the users will switch to Telegram”.
This planned advertisement on WhatsApp led to a split between Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp’s founders Brian Acton and Jan Koum.
WhatsApp founder left his company after Zuck and his team started a business that went against one of his promises about the company.
The promise is an oath where WhatsApp will never introduce advertisements and collect large amounts of data to its users.
