WhatsApp Facebook integration – Acton fears WhatsApp may lose its original flavor. Brian Acton, who developed WhatsApp, said that Zuckerberg is in a hurry to make money through messaging service.

WhatsApp Facebook Integration was in the news for a couple of days as Brian Acton, the co-founder of WhatsApp revealed the intention of Mark Zuckerberg to make money faster through messaging service. Acton accuses Zuckerberg of undermining the elements of WhatsApp’s encryption technology.

WhatsApp Facebook Integration is gone viral in the news as a report disclosed Facebook collecting the code for a local database to know if a WhatsApp contact is blocked, to find a phone number, or find if a chat is archived or not.

The co-founder of WhatsApp, Brian Acton said that Mark Zuckerberg is in a hurry to make money from messaging services. WhatsApp was against monetizing it with ads. He said if so, WhatsApp will lose its flavor and originality of being a pure chatting system.

Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for over $19 billion. Brian Acton earlier had a disagreement on monetizing WhatsApp and he quit Facebook by giving up &850 million on the table.

WABetaInfo, a fan website that closely tracks WhatsApp Beta developer versions, has found a database in Facebook Messenger that will allow Messenger to understand whether WhatsApp contacts are blocked.

Zuckerberg has revealed his plans to integrate its chat services to let billions of users message one another across platforms. Calling it a long-term project, Zuckerberg had said the cross-app functionality will happen in 2020 or beyond.
