FTC May Block Facebook From Bundling Its Apps

Business Insider reports

The Federal Trade Commission is mulling whether to file an injunction against the social networking giant that could block it from its plans to stitch together its WhatsApp messaging service with the chat features of Instagram and those of its core Facebook app.

The injunction could also block the company from enforcing its rules about how apps from third-party companies can work with its own services, according to the report. Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple, have been under increasing scrutiny over whether they’ve taken actions that have curtailed competition.
