Many of us are expectant about how ads will be included in WhatsApp. Facebook wants to monetize your application, which is understandable, and we are all nervous to know if Facebook, knowing the hand it has, gets too much or too much publicity.
WhatsApp and ads, as Facebook intends to add advertising
WhatsApp modifies the terms of service of your application to leave the sending of ads to users by companies. How will they be?
Now, a technological medium called TechCrunch, assures us that not only do we already have an idea of how this advertising will be implemented, but that we also have the date: in the year 2019. Let's look more closely.
Advertising on WhatsApp in the year 2019
This advertising that TechCrunch talks about would be implemented in the WhatsApp states. These commercial statements would be displayed among those of friends and family, in the app's own tab. With a link integrated in the state we could access that offer directly, or its website.
According to WhatsApp itself, they want to put the ads in the states in the year 2019. They want to do it slowly and progressively, informing the user of this measure. It is logical, given the anger that could be produced by users before this measure.
Is it bad that there are ads on WhatsApp?
The million dollar question is: is it really bad that there are ads in the application? We already see daily ads on other social networks. Without going any further, we have commercial stories on Instagram as well as posts sponsored by influencers. On the same Twitter we see offers and promotions on our timeline. What happens then with WhatsApp?
Here in WhatsApp the factor of The intimacy. It is not the same a social network in which you use a profile that you can create as you want a in which we use our personal number and in which we talk with friends, family, and so on. The feeling of interference with advertising is much greater in an instant messaging social network than in another.
WhatsApp activates group video calls: talk to up to 4 people
WhatsApp group video calls are now available to all users: the company updates the official application on Android and also on iOS.
In addition, there is tiredness. We see advertising in virtually every possible place, and a space without advertising is almost a gift today. Having advertising even in this app that we use daily and above in our states, mirror of our friendships, is already possibly filling the glass. On the other hand WhatsApp must make a profit from your application, so that part is understandable.
And you do you think?
