WhatsApp was found originally found in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum. Later on Feb 20, 2014, facebook announced to buy WhatsApp for the US $19 Billion. Now Facebook owns WhatsApp.

One of the conference attendees Olivier Ponteville has shared the pictures with details on how WhatsApp is going to serve ads.

Olivier Ponteville, in his tweets, has clearly mentioned that the WhatsApp ads catalog will be attached to the existing facebook catalog.

At the launch of WhatsApp, the creators of WhatsApp have clearly mentioned neither to show Ads on this messaging platform nor to sell it’s users’ data. Instead, they will charge a little monthly fee to cover the hosting expense.

These days companies know literally everything about you, your friends, your interests, and they use it all to sell ads.

No one wakes up excited to see more advertising, no one goes to sleep thinking about the ads they’ll see tomorrow.
