The company's Workplace app also received the same treatment and so did Oculus which is now "Oculus from Facebook". Now, two of the company's most significant purchases will have Facebook stamped right onto their names. It can be argued that being separated from the social network app has done a lot of good to Instagram and WhatsApp, the former now one of the most used social media apps and the latter the largest instant messaging app.
The cofounders of Instagram and WhatsApp have successively left the Silicon Valley tech giant over the past few years, with various reports pointing to tensions between them and Mark Zuckerberg as the 34-year-old billionaire chief executive has pushed to integrate the services more closely.
Facebook seems to be accelerating the integration of its messaging apps, and the rebranding could be a first step towards a more unified ecosystem.
According to reports, Facebook has confirmed that it will change the names of both its subsidiaries and will add "from Facebook" to their names. The employees of Instagram and WhatsApp were recently informed about the changes as antitrust regulators are examiningFacebook's acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp.
According to reliable sources, since 2003, Facebook has managed to buy almost 90 companies which include trending applications like Instagram and messaging service WhatsApp. On your device's home screen, the name for each will mercifully remain the same (for now).
A spokesperson for Facebook says that the company "wants to make clearer which products and services belong to Facebook". But it's also very likely that you'll see "from Facebook" on the splash screen for both apps.
The Federal Trade Commission is keeping its promise that it will put every aspect of Facebook's business under the looking glass.
He added that it may be hard for FTC to prove the acquisitions were meant to undercut the competition, as Facebook might argue that they had valid and pro-consumer justifications for its take-over.
