Did you know A Recent Telegram Update Allows Users To Export And Import Chats From WhatsApp Telegram is introducing a new feature , allowing its growing userbase on iOS products to import chats from their WhatsApp accounts (and from other social media messaging apps as well). To say that WhatsApp has had a horrible past month or so would be highly understanding the issues plaguing our previously favorite social media communication app. Ever since the announcement of a change to the Terms of Service policy that allowed the app to share user information with Facebook, people have been quick to make their displeasure heard. With a general air of mistrust surrounding Facebook, considering how the social network has been subjected to an FTC lawsuit as well as criticism regarding its unintentional role in the US Capitol riot, users expressed paranoia regarding any amount of personal information being willingly handed over.

Zuckerberg says this is a crucial act taken by the company to hold the temperature down According to the latest reports on Wednesday, the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg is reported to have said that the company will completely and permanently stop suggesting political and civic groups to its users.

Did you know The Coming Year Looks Hard for Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg Thinks it is Because of Apple While 2020 proved to be good year for Facebook in terms of growth, 2021 looks uncertain for a whole lot of reasons. The last quarter of the previous year was great in terms of revenue as well as user strength growth for Facebook. It gained a lot of new users during the pandemic because practically everyone was under lockdown and many switched towards social media as a means of entertainment. The first reason for the expected uncertainty is Apple’s new privacy policy. Apple has ordered all apps on App Store to come clean with what data they will be taking from the user and a pop up will appear to the user notifying them about their data and asking for consent that whether or not they want the app to make use of their data. Considering majority of the brands and developers use this data for linking user preferred advertisements with the user and a large sum of Facebook’s revenue comes f

Therefore, Apple has decided to finally add a pop up which will appear when you open the app first time after this rule goes live, and will show a message indicating which data is being used by the app and will ask for consent from the user that whether or not they want this data to be sha

Previously, Twitter did not have a strong relationship with research and developing communities. Their developing platform made it very hard for researchers to access the data they were looking for and they had to rely on their own resources. This made both researchers and developers stand at a very un-ideal relationship with the company because of its continuous and sometimes adversarial product development over the years. This notable relation began specially in 2012 when Twitter decided to cut the key developer access to maintain stricter control, but now Twitter has decided to change its ways. Despite all this Twi
