WhatsApp soon to give you a devastated experience? | App News
The company’s Vice President just confirmed the news, saying business will now be allowed to run advertisements. “Facebook will start monetising WhatsApp, and show ads in the ‘Status’ section of the app”.
‘WhatsApp for Business’ is free, allowing companies to link users directly into a chat with them from their website or social media. However, the new plan will, for a fee, allow companies to place advertisements right in your Status tab in the app.’
Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when and in which countries Status ads will arrive. Some reports claim they’ll roll out early next year, but in any case, it’s only a matter of time.
