Facebook plans to put its name on Instagram, WhatsApp

“Instagram from Facebook” and “WhatsApp from Facebook.” is what the apps will be called after facebook rebrands. The Information reports that employees at these platforms have been notified that Facebook will add its name to Instagram and WhatsApp.
“We want to be clearer about the products and services that are part of Facebook.”, a spokesperson from Facebook confirmed. But if credit for backing popular services is what Facebook wants, it may have to live with some blame, after repeated privacy scandals and political handwringing over bias.
The move isn’t completely out of the blue either — Jane Manchun Wong spotted the new branding back in March. The founders of Instagram left Facebook last fall, just after WhatsApp founder Brian Acton and Jan Koum made their exits. Now the products they built will be more visibly tied to Facebook, for better or worse.
