What is information? Report According to Facebook, the decision not to show ads on WhatsApp does not seem to be completely firm. The social networking giant has reportedly postponed a push to bring in more ads to avoid “anti-regulators”.
In any case, if the report is true and Facebook really executes the plan, the company, already facing criticism for trust, will once again take advantage of the WhatsApp user base. This could lead to massive deletion of Facebook accounts by WhatsApp users who do not allow their messages to be included in their social media profiles.
It is unclear whether Facebook plans to sell ads directly on WhatsApp. At the annual Facebook Marketing Conference in the Netherlands in May last year, Facebook showed the status of WhatsApp as a platform for monetization through advertising, similar to the way monetization is done through Instagram Stories since January 2017. The company added in the news that status ads may only be launched sometime this year.
