  1. Enjoy it.

    I started to come back. I came back to WhatsApp, after finding their updated TOS adequate. I did not feel that way about Instagram’s. Not that I fully believe anything Facebook promises to do or not to do, but their WhatsApp TOS is pretty explicit about NOT sharing data with Facebook, and says all communications now have end-to-end encryption. So, unless they are flat-out lying in big print (okay, so, probably, but at least I have a clear screenshot of it)…

    IG is more like transparency in abusing your data and promising no privacy whatsoever. Not that I care that MUCH, mind you, but it’s still a matter of principle.

    I wonder if the change in TOS is meaningless, since they already shared that data in 2016. If you missed out on the 30-day opt-out period (and I did, since I seldom use cellphone messaging apps), then Facebook already has your Whatsapp data. When I found out that my data had gone earlier this year, I went cold turkey and stopped using Whatsapp. They can Hoover my Instagram data for the time being but that’s the only Facebook-owned service I regularly use. The minute a rival service comes out (will Pixelfed be it?), I may leave Instagram.
