Many social media platforms are followed by ads in WhatsApp. You will now see various ads while browsing your people’s status shares on WhatsApp.
With more than 1 billion active users, many new features are released every year for WhatsApp, the world’s most popular instant messaging application, and some people don’t like it at all. One of them is the “status ads” that the company has mentioned in the past, which will be published in the coming days.
As the name suggests, this means that WhatsApp will soon display various ads to users. WhatsApp ads first appeared at the Facebook Marketing Summit (FMC) 2019 in the Netherlands.
In FMC, the company announced that in relation to WhatsApp ads, users could see the advertisers’ name along with the ad in those ads. It was also mentioned that users could visit resources where they could get more detailed information by scrolling up the ads. So the working principle of ads in WhatsApp situations is exactly the same as Instagram Stories.
Just like in Instagram, WhatsApp will show you various ads while browsing your people’s status shares.
Since WhatsApp is a platform that has been committed to not making a profit and not collecting users’ data since the first day of its release, doing such a U-turn may disappoint many users and cause a considerable number of users to lose the throne of the application.
