Some restrictions been imposed recently for using WhatsApp and Facebook

There are no reports regarding any kind restrictions being imposed to use WhatsApp and Facebook.

There are no reports regarding any kind restrictions being imposed to use WhatsApp and Facebook. Recently WhatsApp made headlines when it rolled out its new privacy policy, which was eventually rolled back after customers protested against it. Concerns grew when news spread that WhatsApp would be sharing more information with Facebook. The company says "that the new policy does not “expand our ability to share data with Facebook”, and that it is instead focused on its new business updates, which allow companies to host their shops on Facebook and communicate with users through WhatsApp," reported the Independent. WhatsApp had to eventually halt its rollout and users will have until May 15 before they are forced to agree to the rules, hoping that they can “review the policy at their own pace”.

But since then, WhatsApp or Facebook have not said anything about imposing any restrictions or implementing any kind of changes in their services. Therefore, this claim is false.
