The head and founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, plans to link messages across Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook social networks, wrote the New York Times (NYT), referring to plan-family sources. However, individual applications will continue to work independently.
The networks of the networks are according to the letter in an early stage and will end at the end of this one or early next year. Facebook asked the BBC news server that it was at the beginning of a "long process".
According to NYT, for example, a Facebook user should send a message to someone who has only Whatsappu account. With encryption, the message should not be shown to anyone except the two participants in the conversation.
Facebook faces repeated investigations and critics about how it manipulated and conserved user information.
Planed an extensive link of user data could attract the attention of control authorities again, the BBC News Service says.
Facebook bought an Instagram in 2012 for $ 715 million ($ 16 billion) and WhatsApp in 2014 for $ 19 billion ($ 428 billion), said Bloomberg. However, Zuckerberg has largely worked as an independent company.
