Facebook Working to Include Ads on WhatsApp
According to a recent tweet from WABetaInfo, Facebook-owned popular instant messaging service WhatsApp is working to implement ads on the platform. The company is reportedly working to implement ads in the Status section on the iOS app first, with Android to follow soon thereafter.
A related report from TNW on the matter suggests that Facebook already had plans to serve ads on the app even before its acquisition. The information was revealed by WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton who resigned from Facebook last year following a disagreement with the company regarding planned changes to WhatsApp.
