Concerned users were disturbed about WhatsApp’s new feature that enables the app to share personal user data with Facebook, reviving the age-old debate of digital privacy on smartphones and social media platforms.

Well, ya basically!
Tweeps are sharing polls asking people if they would opt for an alternative to WhatsApp following the recent updates, however, many retorted saying regardless of the new policy, “it [WhatsApp] will remain the most widely used communication app.”
Although, @WhatsApp has less features but it will remain the most widely used communication app.@telegram & @signalapp are feature rich but less common.

Poll results proved the same!
Users are considering giving up using the mass communication app altogether, however, this is a problem across all social media apps and not just one
From Instagram and Snapchat to TikTok and Google, most if not all established social media platforms have access to user deets at all times. Google even keeps a track of your location history to provide you with accurate searches, suggestions and recommendations depending on your location.
Also, if you’re looking to avoid sharing your data as much as possible then refrain from using easy account sign-ups. Basically, when signing up for a new app don’t sig up via Google, Facebook or Twitter and create an account via your email.
I know a few people determined to leave both WhatsApp and Facebook.
Have to see if they stick to it 😆
