    It’s just a shame that WhatsApp is affiliated to the great human data vacuum - AKA Fakebook - these days.

    It’s funny to see that since acquiring WhatsApp in 2014, FB don’t know what to do with it, since all they’re really concerned about is making money:

    - Introduce an annual charge - and watch millions jumping ship to one of the other free platforms.
    - Link WhatsApp to people’s FB account? - bingo, FB now have your phone number too ... although they’re already in hot water with the European Union over that one.
    - Introduce adverts - it’s only a matter of time folks.

    Don’t believe the hype about WhatsApp messages being encrypted — FB wouldn’t have owned it all this time without milking the cow for some benefit.

    The best would be for Facebook to charge EUR 1 per year for WhatsApp, as they used to do. This would fund the service without the need for any data collection or advertising.

    If you're using the free service like iMessage, you are the product.
