    You’re not quitting Facebook if you still use Instagram and WhatsApp

    So you’ve decided you’ve had enough with Facebook and its continuing antics, or all the times it’s been hacked this year, or perhaps you’re just sick of how much time you spend on it.

    Facebook's reported plans to integrate its three messaging platforms could very well lead to additional regulatory scrutiny for a company that's already under a legal microscope. The New York Times reported on Friday that Facebook plans to combine the technical infrastructure behind WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger, though the apps will continue to function as separate services. The paper cited four people familiar with the company's plans.

    Zuckerberg says merging WhatsApp, Instagram & Messenger chats will improve security, create an iMessage-like experience

    A report last week suggested that Facebook is planning to combine Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram messaging into a single, unified platform. During Facebook’s Q4 2018 earnings call this evening, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that this is something the company is considering but said it’s not happening this year. Last week’s report explained that merging Instagram, Facebook, and WhatsApp threads, users would be able to easily communicate across platforms. Further, the change would broaden the availability of end-to-end encryption, something that Zuckerberg addressed on today’s call.

    WhatsApp now lets you control who can add you to a group

    WhatsApp today announced it is rolling out changes to its messaging app to give users more control over how they engage with groups, thereby addressing one of the most pronounced privacy issues on the platform. The Facebook-owned service said users will now have an option to control who can add them to groups. Users can choose between Nobody, My Contacts (people whose phone numbers they have saved in their phone), and Everyone — assuming they don’t have any reservations about random people adding them to different groups.

    If you’re part of the DarkModeEverything Movement (I just named it that) you’ll be disappointed to know that the much anticipated WhatsApp dark mode might not be coming to the application after all. After rumours started swirling confirming the existence of the feature we even got a closer look at what dark mode would look like but alas, the feature might have died a premature death. WABetaInfo (the authority on WhatsApp leaks) has said the company has stopped working on the feature.
