Facebook Plan of Merging its Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp’s messaging systems are good or bad
Facebook Plan of Merging its Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp’s messaging systems are good or bad?
A few days back Mark Zuckerberg said “We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be simple, fast, reliable and privacy,” and announced that Facebook is planning to merge messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram’s messaging boards by 2020.
So, what is there to celebrate in Zuckerberg announcement- and what left us scratching our heads?
Good Thing is an end to end encryption across the board.
Presently, WhatsApp is the only board among three that is encrypted fully, messenger and Instagram are not, So, Messenger (is customer’s choice)and Instagram will enjoy the encryption benefit once they merged into one.
End-to-end encryption in all its properties is a likely response to the steadfast and defended privacy concerns that have troubled Facebook in recent years. The statement that followed the announcement confirmed this decision as “a significant step that protects messages from being seen or spied by anyone except the customers or user held in a conversation.” to prevent the hackers or third-party access to individual messaging on all three apps especially facebook. And also merged platform provides the Instagram or messenger user can send the Whatsapp user.
Whether or not it will be sufficient to reattain the customer’s trust across the platform’s users, especially facebook recent troubles resulted in millions of app uninstalls, and even though it is late but its good decision at this point to assure privacy and security to its users.
The compelling approach allows the advertisers who wish to reach many people at once, Making people private correspondence feel safer is one another impediment in front of Facebook.
The merger seems practical and might raise questions. The United Kingdom(UK) data protection authorities opposed severely to be reverse or back the decision. But once the messaging is run on a common infrastructure, as is the plan (For clarification: merging involves the underlying infrastructure of the apps but still messaging services will operate on their standalone apps,) this becomes a complex issue.
Each app needs various levels of disclosure to engage; while WhatsApp and Instagram can be used with a sense of anonymity, Facebook requires a real identity to engage. Users who want to keep their usage of the apps separate.
Zuckerberg believes a unified backend will make all of Facebook’s app more serviceable in the extended term. We wish him the best of luck.
