Promise integration of Instagram, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp: one service instead of three?

Facebook plans to integrate Instagram, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp services into a single network, and this is expected to happen in 2020. In an interview with The New York Times, Mark Zuckerberg said that this move is aimed at competing with other instant messengers, including Apple's iMessage. The goal is to offer a functional and secure means of communication that will give users confidence that their data is reliably protected. Messaging will bypass standard SMS notifications due to end-to-end encryption, which is implemented in WhatsApp.

At this stage, there is no clear understanding of how the integration of services will be implemented and how they will be able to interact, and it also remains an open question whether the messengers will continue to work autonomously just as it does now. Facebook does not hide the fact that they have yet to solve a lot of questions and they have just begun to develop a model for the upcoming integration of the three services.

In addition, the company will have to find weighty arguments that will force users to abandon the usual things and start using a single network. No less important is the issue of confidentiality, because after a number of scandals with leakage of personal data, Facebook’s reputation turned out to be tarnished.
