Whatsapp privacy issues and online learningIt is as if a hornet's nest is disturbed. Millions of Whatsapp users are now confused and confounded since the word about the new privacy terms of Whatsapp-FaceBook data sharing matter is announced and being discussed.
I am wondering what is going to happen to the many Whatsapp groups in which my two nieces (one studying in 6 th class and the other studying in 9 th class) are members. Since the beginning of online classes, each one is a member of the many WhatsApp group their School teachers started. They are members of separate Whatsapp Groups like 9 A Science, 9A Maths, 9 A environmental etc. Then they are also members in WhatsApp groups by Junior Red cross, Music group, Gita Class etc. They are clarifying doubts, completing assignments ,attending tests, getting instructions etc via these Whatsapp groups.
Compare and contrast this with that of people like ISC ME who had only a few contacts in a couple of whatsapp groups and who easily exited Whatsapp "and have switched to the Signal" (as noted in this thread.)
What is the position of these students viz-a-viz Whatsapp? Had you seen this kind of instances in your family? How you propose to solve the issue?
