It has long been said that WhatsApp will have advertising, after all, the messaging application is part of the Facebook network. One of the most profitable companies in the new technological world.
According to the latest information from the Facebook annual conference, WhatsApp will receive advertisements later this year.
What are the advertisements for other Facebook services?
The information on how and where the advertising on WhatsApp will go has not been mentioned, however, we just have to look at "your brother" Facebook Messenger to get a better idea.
In the case of Facebook Messenger, we have advertising introduced among the chats you have open. That is, it is plausible that WhatsApp will do the same. Also note that Instagram is also a good example of introducing advertising. In this case Facebook used the stories to bring the application's financial flow to life. Advertisements that seem to be working out given the amount of advertising I see on the social network.
What are the alternatives to WhatsApp?
There are many alternatives to WhatsApp right now, however, for the most part it also means that your contacts will have to switch services as well.
