Yes, Facebook is planning to implement Whatsapp Ad in the upcoming days. This may seem strange, and you may have concerns about how advertisements will appear around WhatsApp if they would interfere with user experience, and whether our data will be protected after activation. All of the answers to the questions are provided in this short post, and you can find more innovative technology, future technology, and space technology information on our website, where we provide valuable insights for students who love technology and want to understand it easier.
Last year, WhatsApp launched several useful features for its users. The year 2020 will be even more dramatic for the Facebook-owned messaging app, as it aims to introduce an increasing number of new features to improve user experience. Status advertisements are one of the main things that WhatsApp will introduce this year. This functionality has also been discussed previously by the firm. Users of WhatsApp will soon see advertisements. The arrival of WhatsApp advertisements was announced by the company itself during the Facebook Marketing Summit (FMC) 2019 in the Netherlands. In terms of advertisements, FMC stated that users would be able to see the advertiser’s name and their connected advertisement in the ads.
Whatsapp also confirmed that users will not be able to view the advertiser’s contact profile image. Users will be able to access the advertising simply by swiping up, according to the firm. This implies that” WhatsApp Status advertisements will function similarly to Instagram Stories“.
How Whatsapp ad work?
Ads are reported to be a component of WhatsApp Status, a feature launched by the messaging network a few years ago. Currently, WhatsApp Status displays images, videos, messages, and other multimedia files uploaded by a contact. WhatsApp advertisements will function similarly. It is anticipated that WhatsApp advertising would be recommended to users based on their activity and interests.
Users will be able to see advertisements on WhatsApp Status. As previously stated, the WhatsApp Status will only display the advertiser’s name and a preview of the advertisement. Users must swipe up to see the whole advertisement. WhatsApp advertisements will function similarly to Instagram ads.
Whatsapp BetaInfo polled people on Twitter to see whether they would “continue to use WhatsApp following the implementation of the Status advertising feature?” According to the results of the survey, unfortunately, users are dissatisfied with the idea that WhatsApp will soon introduce advertisements to the network. Some users have even gone so far as to claim that they would uninstall the application if there is advertising on the site.
