Someone has actually made a video spreading the message that users’ WhatsApp messages will appear on Facebook. The video includes steps and instructions on how stop your WhatsApp messages from showing up on Facebook.
It seems that there is a new Facebook/WhatsApp hoax every other month. People!! Please don’t believe everything that has been said about WhatsApp messages appearing on Facebook. It is absolutely not true.
WhatsApp has been fully encrypted for a while now, meaning your messages cannot be intercepted by anyone, not even by WhatsApp or Facebook.
The only thing being shared with Facebook is your number, and that is with your permission. I believe the objective here is to use that information to serve to the millions of Facebook users more relevant ads which might in turn lead to higher conversions. Again, even the sharing of your number is optional. There is a chance to opt out of this from your privacy settings on WhatsApp.
Please spread this news instead. This is the truth of the matter.
