Cant happen with Blackberry BBM - cross platform.
BBM Isn't that under APPLE ? if yes then it is not secured ....

The program Telegram is the only one secured to compete with WatsUp kinda programs ... They refuse to "share" information with government agenda

BBM is a Blackberry Application that runs in Apple and Android too. Its Blackberry Security. You can also make your own private facebook in the channels section. Timed deleted messages too.

Facebook had a weird week.

The social-media behemoth you love to hate posted some gaudy fourth-quarter earnings numbers on Wednesday. The report got a lot of likes on Wall Street. Some said it meant founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg had finally turned the page on an otherwise terrible year.

Not so fast. Something else happened to Facebook last week that may say more about the company’s long-term health than any happy-dappy earnings statement.

The website TechCruch reported on Tuesday that Facebook has been paying users between the ages of 13 and 35 to install a VPN, or virtual private network, on their phones. The users get $20 a month; Facebook gets access to … well, everything.

The Facebook Research VPN app hoovered up all incoming and outgoing data. Not just Facebook data — all data, from web browsing to texting to activity on other apps. According to TechCruch, “Facebook went so far as to ask users to screenshot and submit their Amazon order history.”
So who has a problem with Facebook paying people to harvest their data?

Apple, that’s who.

Probably because Apple wants to do it themselves and doesn't like competition :)

Why would they want to collect all the data ?

Information is power and power is money. If they do not use it themselves (unlikely), they would sell it to other companies that would use it.
