Facebook WhatsApp Privacy Invasion Promotes Anger and Likely Violates a 2012 Agreement with the FTC

Power corrupts, as Facebook rolls out yet a new scheme to make more money at user cost by violating the users' WhatsApp privacy, in our view, illegally.

Now they want to harvest for Facebook the data of WhatsApp users, in an action that seems clearly to violate a 2012 Facebook agreement with the FTC.

We have seen nothing from the FTC about this yet. One really wonders what the people at the federal regulatory agencies do for a living except to cash their government paychecks.
