5 messaging apps to use when WhatsApp starts showing advertising


WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application in South Africa, but it is also owned by Facebook, a fact that has prompted some users concerned about their privacy to turn to other messaging apps.

There have also been reports that WhatsApp will start showing advertising to users, making it less appealing.

The close relationship between the two platforms and analytical data collected from WhatsApp have alerted many users to potential privacy concerns, and with other apps offering truly private messaging, concerned users have turned to other options for their private conversations.

If your friends are using say three of these networks, not to worry, as most phones will allow you to easily operate multiple messaging platforms simultaneously. In that way you should still stay in contact with everyone. South Africans should also remember they also have Moya Messenger which is zero-rated data within South Africa.
