WhatsApp will finally start showing ads to its users in Status which was being speculated for a long time. Facebook has been reportedly working on ways to monetise WhatsApp for months now and this also led to the exit of WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton from Facebook. Clearing the air on Facebook's monetisation efforts towards WhatsApp, the mobile messaging service's Vice President Chris Daniels on Wednesday said the company is going to put advertisements in its "Status" feature.
