Facebook is planning to rename its two social media platform WhatsApp and Instagram as “WhatsApp from Facebook” and “Instagram from Facebook” respectively.
It came as a shock, as many users still doesn’t know that Facebook own these popular apps.
Till now, the company allowed both the companies to operate as independent brands. They have their own managers, employess, and even sepearate work places.
However, in recent times, Facebook has taken steps to make WhatsApp and Instagram less independent.
“We want to be clearer about the products and services that are part of Facebook,” a spokeswoman, Bertie Thomson of the company said.
According to the report, the new name will be displayed only on the app store pages on both Android and iOS. The new names will also be visible on the login pages.
