The idea behind the WhatsApp was that people can easily connect with each other using the power of internet.
Back in the day when WhatsApp was young it charges user use its services.

Now the Social Media gaint like Facebook is in the picture. a lot things are changed after that.
Facebook already owns companies like Instagram, messenger and Facebook. A big chunk of money Facebook earns is from advertising. Currently all the three platforms show ads to its users.
Recently, WhatsApp changed its policy. So in a simple word WhatsApp will collect a lot of user data and it will use it for business purpose.
So here are 4 alternative application which can be used. Hike messenger will not be in this list because it is not anymore in the business.
