The tag 'WhatsApp From Facebook' has been spotted in the instant messaging app WhatsApp. Let us tell you that Facebook has started adding its name to all the three platforms owned by Facebook, Facebook Messanger, Instagram and WhatsApp. Recently, Instagram has also been tagged as 'Instagram From Facebook' name tag. According to the information reported by a user, the 'WhatsApp From Facebook' tag has been spotted in the Settings option in WhatsApp.
Facebook started adding its name to both of its messaging apps Instagram and Whatsapp earlier this year. Which was also confirmed by Facebook. A Facebook spokesperson said that our policies regarding our product and service are clear. Last week, some users had also seen the name tag 'Instagram From Facebook' in Instagram. This makes it clear that Facebook is beginning to show its ownership over all its services and products.
It is being speculated that this step of Facebook has been taken after scrutiny and data privacy dispute by many regulators all over the world. Facebook can tell whom and when it is sharing information of its users to maintain transparency in its apps and services.
Let me tell you that Facebook took over Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014. All these apps currently have over 1 billion users. Instagram is also more important for Facebook because Facebook is earning the most through Instagram. Therefore, more and more consumers and advertisers can be attracted through this app.
