¿Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp will be one? It turns out that Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has in hand the integration of messaging services WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Instagram, according to The New York Times.
But what will happen if Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp were one? If this change is made specifically, a Facebook user will be able to send an encrypted message to someone who has only a WhatsApp account, something that is not possible today.

And it is that this situation will involve reconfiguring the functioning of these three services at their most basic levels. By maintaining their work as independent applications, they will unite their messaging infrastructure and all will include end-to-end encryption.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE
The New York Times notes that Zuckerberg's goal is to keep its billions of users and contribute to the monetization of its services. It should be noted that Facebook will be in the early stages to implement this change, which could be completed by the end of this or the beginning of 2020.
It is also mentioned that the entrepreneur now believes that closer integration will benefit the whole family of Facebook applications in the long run by making them more useful.
In addition, his desire raises questions as to how the applications will share the data of their users, because at the moment these services require different types of information at the time of registration.
