changes-requested: I would say this could fit in this case https://edit.tosdr.org/cases/372 since if user-generated content such as messages are encrypted, WhatsApp cannot share them with Facebook or anyone else, but there already is an approved point linked to it...
It may be possible to link it to this case https://edit.tosdr.org/cases/372 and still explaining in the analysis that messages remain encrypted and aren't shared with the rest of Facebook (WhatsApp shares user information with Facebook, but no user content).

I'm sorry, I made a mistake copy-pasting the url of the case: "It may be possible to link it to this case **https://edit.tosdr.org/cases/225 You can choose with whom you share content**
and still explaining in the analysis that messages remain encrypted and aren't shared with the rest of Facebook (WhatsApp shares user information with Facebook, but no user content)."
Otherwise we would have two points linked to the same case!
