The Information Commissioner responded to Whatsapp share of users' private information to Facebook, we're talking of Elizabeth Deham, and she said,

“The changes WhatsApp and Facebook are making will affect a lot of people. Some might consider it’ll give them a better service, others may be concerned by the lack of control.

“Our role is to pull back the curtain on things like this, ensuring that companies are being transparent with the public about how their personal data is being shared, and protecting consumers by making sure the law is being followed.

“We’ve been informed of the changes. Organisations do not need to get prior approval from the ICO to change their approaches, but they do need to stay within data protection laws. We are looking into this.”

Though, Facebook wants to connect people to the right ads, but this decision will affect alot of people.

So, what do you have to say about this?
