Tech Bytes: Facebook WhatsApp privacy concerns, Apple new iPhone date, Twitter new timeline design

Tech Bytes

Facebook is denying a report that it reads and shares WhatsApp messages. An investigation by ProPublica claims Facebook employs contract workers who reportedly read through millions of messages on WhatsApp. Facebook says WhatApp reviews messages sent to them by users to report abuse.

Apple has released a short video, announcing its next product launch. Next Tuesday’s event is expected to feature a new iPhone and possibly the next Apple Watch. The company’s September event is considered its most important of the year, just ahead of the holiday shopping season.

Twitter is testing out a new timeline design. The display has an Instagram look, with edge-to-edge pictures and video. The design will only be visible to a small group of  iOS users for now. It’s unclear when, or if Twitter plans to roll out the new design to all users.
