WhatsApp To Place Ads In Status Posts

Whatsad

However, it's likely they'll start appearing sometime early next year. WhatsApp, in particular, is what I use for most of my daily communications with family, friends, and acquaintances. As annoying as that may sound, WhatsApp is still a business, one that's not making money for Facebook, even though it happens to be one of the most popular chat services in the world.

It is a promising advertising avenue as there are close to 450 million users for WhatsApp status, 400 million for Instagram stories and 300 million for the Facebook app and messenger stories on a daily basis.

Media reports further say Facebook will be using its native advertising platform and will publish ads that could help users understand and participate in businesses using the messaging app.

As of now, though, this change has not been implemented, and we're not sure when will it be implemented, as Mr. Daniels did not give an estimated date. "Businesses pay to send those messages", Daniels told in a report. At the time, WhatsApp promised that users "can still count on absolutely no ads interrupting your communication".

Facebook's plan to monetize WhatsApp have for quite some time been in news. In Facebook discussed different approaches to monetizing apps. "This is going to be [the] primary monetisation mode for the company as well as an opportunity for businesses to reach people on WhatsApp". In the future, we'll place ads in WhatsApp Status, which is our Stories feature.

When WhatsApp was first launched, users had to pay an annual subscription fee of 99 U.S. cents to use the service.

The move comes after the government on Wednesday again asked WhatsApp to provide location and identity of persons spreading misinformation which is leading to violent incidents.

It is unclear when there will be ads status. The status section which allows the users to share images, videos etc for 24 hours will have advertisements displayed on it sooner.
