Facebook To Put FB, Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram into One Platform

Facebook is taking greater control over the back-end connections between Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp, including encryption. The initiative is supposed to be implemented by 2020 and comes directly from CEO Zuckerberg.

As mashable reports, Facebook is looking to stop the fading interest in the social network and hopes to benefit from the popularity of the other brands, including greater control over the companies.

The latter caused trouble already – the founders of WhatsApp and Instagram have moved on recently.

More control, combined infrastructure and a mixture of brands. On the one hand this is great for data collection and AI efforts, on the other hand customers might not be all that excited.
