What Are The Benefits/effects Of Facebook And Whatsapp Synchronisation? by Ademola47(m): 9:29pm On Jan 10
According to the new Terms and Conditions of WhatsApp, the company will now share its user's information such as Phone number, Ip address, contacts and more with Facebook as from February 8.

Tech gurus, please what's the effect of this in practice?

Just a means of

Getting your identity

For easy Tracking

I would say

Privacy thrown out

To the trash Can


But it Can also be used positively

Like tailored Adverts

This synchronisation is mainly concerned with business messaging. So in practice, there's no change in what data is shared with Facebook for non-business chats and account information.

Facebook is going to give businesses the option to use Facebook’s secure hosting infrastructure to host WhatsApp chats if they don’t wish to store the messages over their own systems.

When you sync as a business account, ads are delivered via both platforms to users which in turn leads to more revenue for Mark and his cohorts; also your business as it becomes more exposed and impacts on your sales and continual usage of their ad platforms, all things being equal.

I run digital marketing services for firms, contact me if interested. Training also available, please send me a PM

Thanks

None; absolutely none. As a matter of fact this is the perfect time to start searching for alternatives to Facebook and WhatsApp. When Elon Musk begin to direct his followers to switch to Signal, then you know that the dice is cast.

You can share contents on them simultaneously without having to recreate it.
It can be called a SMART MEMORY connection

If there are benefits, I doubt if it'll be for the users.

I believe it's mainly for advertising and stuff, not necessarily linking the two social networks more than they already are.

Whichever way, we are all at Facebook mercy. Is either you accept or you japa form his platform.
But as for me, in as much this is not affecting my Facebook ads I run for clients and businesses, we are good to go.

Running Facebook ads for people and my businesses has made a big difference for me as a civil servant. And I won't pray for any change to affect that.

Facebook, Twitter, and co are messing up big time.
And the need to find alternative social media is rising.

We can not afford social media tyranny era.

Im impressed..


Simply put, it’s a link just like linking Ibadan - Kano but remember, without data or borrowed funds, it won’t work.

Actually is due to the info out there about whatapp fully integrated to facebook and facebook will soon start ads placement on what App, thereby monetizing the hell out of what App. Imagine using what app or facebook seeing an ad about a product u just chatted with a friend ( you will be like WTF) that seo / algorithm to the core.. That tells u that the end to end enscription chatting is actually false.now I think the signal app is more better than telegram and it same end to end enscription as what app (this is because what app creator is the part owner and creator of the signal app- Brian acton). and take note the new owners of what app sells your data to the highest bidder( check Cambridge analytical Zuckerberg scandal) in which it was used(or/ discovered) in the voters fraud during trump USA 2016 election.
There are lots I can reveal to u but let me stop here, I hope u grab what I meant as your opinion will be needed shallom

It will benefit Facebook by gathering more data about you, which they have already anyway.

Why the fuss?

Ever wondered how you can share stories or run ads on Instagram, it will still reflect on Facebook?

That's synchronization!

People are already using some special tools like Hootsuite to manage all their social handles from ONE interface.

This new development is win-win for both parties if you ask me.

The aim of every company now is to make user experience easier and smoother, which in turn makes them richer.

Even if you switch to another social network, you're still giving your data away.

What's the difference?

Mark is raving mad and has no one to tell him, since his fortunes started dwindling, he had resulted to data mining, he thought advert money will keep coming but influencers have built handles with enough followers and now run ads for businesses which has proven to be more effective than the facebook ads.

Moreso, the kind of power that social media platforms are assuming on the global space without any law to tame them is alarming, twitter was even cheered for banning trump, a whole US president, I tell you, soon, social media platforms will become a tool for politicians and world leaders, countries or individuals will be oppressed and silenced at a time from speaking out.

China saw this and banned them, but the dumping ground (africa) without insight will not see it until it's too late, imagine mark stating he wants to mine your data and even keep it even after you may have deleted whatsapp, just so he can sell and resell them later to countries with higher bid. Let's watch out and see.

That is what they have been doing all long, they just had to inform us later.


So far the information is not in your mind, it is unsafe anywhere.
