Whatsapp Disses on Your Privacy

WhatsApp And Facebook are now sharing data, ticking off their users, after WhatsApp has announced they’ll be sharing your data with Facebook. This is a little rundown on what they’re doing and how to opt out if you want to. If you want to cut to the chase, just page on down, you’ll see it.

– – –

It was announced that WhatsApp updated their terms and privacy policies for the first time in four years (That was their spin on it.)

What they were apprising their millions of users of was that they’ve joined Facebook, with FB now their parent company. They also announced that they are looking to use your phone calls and text messages to keep you up to date on various factions of your life. Which is reflective of what FB has suggested it could do now. But now WhatsApp will now be sharing your phone number with FB to help FB ” offer better friend suggestions and show you more relevant ads,” because we all know how much we’d love to see better ads in our already “sponsor-filled” feeds.

But this announcement has yet again frustrated millions of users of WhatsApp and Facebook. When Facebook acquired WhatsApp a few years ago, they said that they would not use any of the 1 billion WhatsApp users data.

Captain America Civil War on Amazon

With all the “crap” and changes taking place with Captain America in the comics today, I’m not sure I could handle any major changes like what’s going on in the comics, to the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)!  (Cap being a Hydra agent all along is mind-blowing and feels a bit like a personal betrayal to the fans, but that’s in the comics. For now.)

But what I want to chat about, or apprise you of, is exactly what Captain America’s (Cap) role or character will be like in the upcoming The Avengers: Infinity War movie that’s coming out in May of 2018.

For me, it seems evident that the stories within the Cap movies are the backbone to the MCU universe. Most of the other character films are just events spotlighting their journeys, but Cap tackles the big issues like In Winter Soldier when he confronts Col. Fury about the new Helicarriers and their potential mission to ward off bad guys before they can act out their evil ways.

Pokemon Go Evolution List, Alphabetically Listed

August 23, 2016
