Let''s face it. In India, telecom has changed livelihoods, even lives, bringing Indians closer to the world of connectivity and digitisation. Much more than any other social, governmental or corporate overture can ever hope to achieve. One now reaches out to relatives, friends, even strangers, instantly. WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, LinkedIn, E mails, the list is mind numbing. Overnight, our plumber, carpenter, painter, electrician, even the sabziwaala has become a phone number. A single call, even a missed call, leads to easy access and instant gratification. Perhaps the powers that be have found this too good to let it last and the industry is staring death in the face. Unless radical measures are taken this coming week, starting tomorrow, the average Indian shall bear the brunt, having to pay through his her nose to continue to avail mobile connectivity or lose easy access altogether.

Facebook owned instant messaging app WhatsApp has begun rolling out a feature for Android users to let them share their status stories directly on Facebook Story and other apps. Just like Instagram, WhatsApp's status Stories let users post images, text and videos on your profile that disappear after 24 hours. WhatsApp hasn't made an official announcement yet but several users reported this on Twitter. "So WhatsApp has a new feature, you can share your story on WhatsApp to Facebook. For me, this is quite interesting, a centralized mode of communicating to various platforms," posted one user. "The New #WhatsApp update allows you to share your statuses on to your #FacebookStory as well," wrote another. To use this feature, tap on share button which will show you the apps you can share your WhatsApp status with. Tapping on "Share to Facebook Story" will let you share WhatsApp Status to Facebook Story. Currently, there was no option to have WhatsApp status automatically shared to another service and the instant messaging app intends that the feature should be an active decision on the part of the user. The roll out appears to be part of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's plan to create a unified app combining WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram to let over 2.6 billion users communicate with each other cross apps by 2020. The move could let the social networking giant tout higher user engagement to advertisers, thus, ramping up its advertising division at a time when growth has slowed down.
