User counterblast – WhatsApp delays data-sharing
Amid the heavy counterblast from the users across the globe, popular social media platform WhatsApp delayed the data-sharing change. “We’re now moving back the date on which people will be asked to review and accept the terms,” WhatsApp said in a blog post.
Earlier, February 8 was the said deadline for accepting the tweak to its terms of service, involving sharing data with Facebook servers. The platform said it would instead “go-to people gradually to review the policy at their own pace before new business options are available on May 15.”
