The dangers of using Whatsapp for work purposes

The dangers of using Whatsapp for work purposes

WhatsApp, the instant messaging app used by circa 1.9 billion people (according to Statista, July 2017), is in my opinion, the next best chat invention since MSN.

With 58% of global users logging on more than once a day, the uses of the chat app are beginning to be recognised in the workplace. With WhatsApp often favoured over cumbersome and unreliable email phone applications, it also provides a more casual method to exchange information with colleagues away from the office, or to quickly inform someone that you’ll be five minutes late.
