How You Can Actually Stop Whatsapp from Sharing Your Data with Facebook

One of the most popular messaging apps Whatsapp recently announced that it would start sharing the contact details of users with Facebook which happens to be its parent company.

According to Whatsapp and Facebook, this new policy will certainly help brands enhance their ads and will also help users find friends quite easily.

Whatsapp also said that it will not sell or share your contact details with advertisers. However, if you want to stay away from any type of promotional calls in future, then you’ve still got a chance.

Yes, you’ve heard that right. You can stop Whatsapp from sharing your details with Facebook by following two very easy methods, while the first one has to be attempted before accepting the new service terms.

All you need to do is press the “read more” option instead of clicking “agree”. But somehow, if you’ve already accepted the new terms of services, you don’t need to worry at all because you still have 30 more days to make changes.

For this, go to the setting menu and press the account tab. Once you do, you will be able to uncheck the box reading “Share my account info”. This way, you will actually stop Whatsapp from sharing your data with Facebook.

Instagram Going Non-Chronological Way – A Move Similar to Facebook

If you’re using Instagram today, then you must have experienced a prominent change to your news feed. Yes, you got it right….

Older posts from your friends and loved ones are appearing more frequently than those which are shared recently. It’s simply because of Instagram’s new algorithm which rearranges the order of the posts and shows what you actually care about.

Earlier this year, Instagram announced that it will be rolling out new algorithm which might bring a drastic change to its news feed. And, today is the day when you can actually feel this positive change to your Instagram’s news feed. With such an update, your feed will automatically be filtered and keep you connected to your friends in a better way.

Right after the initial announcement several celebrities and brands had gone mad over it because they were extremely worried that the new update might disconnect them from their fans. Therefore, a lot of professional instagrammers requested users to turn on notification.

In short, it’s the most remarkable update that will certainly boost reader-centric content. And, this is what Instagram has to say about it.

“We found that people are liking photos more, commenting more and generally engaging with the community in a more active way.”
