The WhatsApp privacy fiasco: Part 2

Teddit.net writes:

WhatsApp’s message metadata, messaging, calling, Status, groups (including group name, group picture, group description), payments or business features; profile photo, “about” information; whether you are online, when you last used our Services (your “last seen”); and when you last updated your “about” information stuff will all be shared not just with USA government, NSA/CIA but also within Facebook Companies where this data will be linked with other Facebook services you use.

I think the above quote is sufficient. WHy do you want this?

Unless we create awareness about the privacy implications of ALL the social media platforms and “normalisation” of behaviour for the masses, it won’t be possible to avoid these privacy conflicts. I am worried for the healthcare data being shared freely on WhatsApp and they have unrestricted access to it now.
