CNN BUSINESS : «Facebook plans to integrate Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram. What that means for users»

«New York (CNN Business) – Facebook plans to integrate its messaging platforms, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger, according to a report from the New York Times.

The three services would remain separate apps, but their infrastructure behind the scenes would be the same.

Even with minimal changes on the surface, the move could have an impact on the billions of people who use the tools. For example, it could allow the company to build a single user profile from its different apps to better target ads.

The apps could also get end-to-end encryption, which shields messages from being read by people outside of the conversation, according to Facebook.»

BUSINESS INSIDER : «Most Netflix subscribers don’t even bother with Hulu or HBO Now»

cotd1024

«In the online streaming video business, there’s Netflix — and everybody else. That’s true not only when it comes to the number of subscribers, where Netflix leads by far, but also in terms of the devotion of those customers.

The vast majority of Netflix customers don’t subscribe to any other streaming video service, as we can see in this chart from Statista, which is based on data from research firm Second Measure. Netflix’s customers are far more likely than customers of other streaming video services to only subscribe to its service. Indeed, DirecTV Now, Netflix’s nearest competitor in terms of subscriber exclusivity, has half the rate of customers who only subscribe to its service.»
