There is still bad blood between the former founders of WhatsApp and today’s WhatsApp parent company, as Brian Acton again confirms with his public statements. Acton is one of the founders of WhatsApp, and after leaving the company, he had often found clear words on how people should deal with Facebook. He still advises deleting Facebook. Brian Action especially doesn’t trust Mark Zuckerberg. They are still open wounds.
According to Acton, the latest push to encrypt all the Group’s messengers need not be immovable. Zuckerberg is known to be happy to change his mind. A peak. Both founders of WhatsApp left Messenger after an agreement that allowed WhatsApp to develop without the influence of Facebook expired. Now advertising and other things are coming to messenger, which the founders of WhatsApp always rejected.
In closing, Brian Acton doesn’t trust Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook in general. He sees profit for Facebook as the top priority, so no user can believe how good Facebook is. Time and time again that rings true to me, but despite the wealth paid for, the founders of WhatsApp are angry about how the leadership of Messenger and Facebook will develop. You had given up on your baby and you would have to see the consequences today, it hurts.
WhatsApp allows us to search for products
For businesses and therefore also completely normal WhatsApp users, mobile shop windows (catalogs) are now being introduced. They allow the creation of product catalogs for the messenger, benefiting both users and commercial customers.
Catalogs are mobile showcases where companies can present and share their products. Those interested can simply search for them and discover something they want to buy. In the past, companies had to submit product photos and the same information over and over again. Now customers can view the full catalog directly on WhatsApp. This makes business owners appear more professional and they can interest customers in something in the chat without having to refer them to a website.
Catalogs are now possible in Germany as well, WhatsApp wrote on the internal blog.
