We always want to connect with our people and so we brought iMessage, Skype, Google hangouts, Whatsapp and everything for that matter. These applications have changed the experience of communication and the concept of messaging. But we always want something better than currently existing. Why? For a better experience, for the better communication. The latest news which was announced by Mark Zuckerberg, might sound little sour for many folks but also it is going to start a new era all together in the idea of communicating.
Facebook is working to allow cross-messaging between Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, according to a report in The New York Times on 25th Jan, 2018.
“We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks. As you would expect, there is a lot of discussion and debate as we begin the long process of figuring out all the details of how this will work.”
It works this way, each messenger application works as it is but considering the recent news, facebook is rebuilding some internal infrastructures so that people who is using facebook app only could communicate others who are present in whatsapp or instagram within its ecosystem. As it is known that facebook bought Whatsapp in the year 2014 for 19M$. It makes users easy to communicate with each other and gives a new experience all together.
Don’t you think merging three applications within an ecosystem is lack of privacy! Because it’s not. All of the apps will support end-to-end encryption as well. Facebook has yet to provide a timeline for when this will happen. Facebook has to still give a timeline of when its rebuilding affair is going to complete and when are we going to start a new messaging system.
What is the use of doing this?
This allows users to be more engaged with the platforms or the applications and so the facebook strongly hopes. This will soon become
a primary messaging service.
This also increases the space for advertisers who are currently advertising in social media. This will bring revenue to the platforms. It seems that the growth of advertising market has been reduced a little because advertisers assume that users of the applications are not engaged enough. With this collaboration, hopefully we get bumped into more engageable advertising.
Facebook has the most users of any other social media platform, and by combining its assets this way, the company could more directly compete with Apple’s iMessage and Google’s messaging services.
