This Whatsapp change of terms is making some of my friends replacing it with Telegram or Signal, either way for lesser evil imo. We have yet to see how this move pays out for Whatsapp and Facebook but I hope more agressive marketing and creepy accurate ads will make people wonder why are they so accurate and search for less invasive alternatives.
