ICYMI — @Facebook banned all Spanish political parties from using @WhatsApp to share political messages ahead of national election on Sunday.

That’s a big deal: 36% of Spaniards use WhatsApp to read news, so blocking political parties is, in itself, a political act
Spain (and, to a degree) Italy are on the cutting edge in terms of European countries relying on @whatsapp to share political content. India, Brazil & other emerging economies are way ahead, and FB has taken steps to limit the amount of sharing that can be done on the platform
But encrypted messaging services like WhatsApp are future of info-sharing as ppl move away from public online spheres to more local/private ones (hence why Zuckerberg is prioritizing privacy-focused services)

In the past, the likes of Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, etc have pretty much run the board of providing the equipment to build global telco networks. That made sense, cos they were only game in town
