WhatsApp will start with advertising today. An agreement that the WhatsApp founders had after selling the messenger to Facebook has expired today. This agreement included that WhatsApp does not have to generate any money in the facebook group until today. In order to earn money with WhatsApp now advertising should be released in the status function.
When exactly the platform starts to distribute advertising is not fixed yet, except that it should be during 2019. We discuss in this blogpost the meaning and possible WhatsApp alternatives without advertising.
