Facebook Messenger and Instagram Direct Messages have now been integrated by Facebook. This is an attempt at combining cross platform messaging and creating a unified synergic system. People are now able to message Instagram users with their messenger app and the same is possible on the other side. This does need to be confirmed with the help of an update.
The same is expected to be done with WhatsApp in the time to come as an attempt by Mark Zuckerberg to create unified messengers rather than a lot of multiple ones. This in no sense means that the applications will also be merged as they will still be independent social media applications.
Many people have raised their concerns regarding the privacy issues related to all this as Facebook and Zuckerberg have already been going through a lot of investigation and doubt in this regard. Other tech key players have also come forward and stated that this is simply an attempt from Facebook to strengthen the already present monopoly.
