According to The Verge WhatsApp users do not need to link their Facebook account directly to the chat app to port their status to their story. Instead, the transfer will be through the data exchange API used by iOS and Android. While the content is shared with all apps on someone's device, the accounts are not linked. There is also no way to automatically share a status with another platform ̵
Establishing a direct connection between WhatsApp and Facebook was a sensitive issue, as the social networking giant had promised not to collect intelligence data when it acquired it in 2014. That's what he did two years later. European countries disapproved of the company's data-sharing practices and the European Commission condemned Facebook for misleading regulators in the acquisition of WhatsApp.
