See Which of Your WhatsApp Contacts Have Been Chatting With This Creepy New App - Demonstrates how Facebook could use your Data

Facebook spies on us all the time, and, by extension, so do the companies it owns like Instagram and WhatsApp. Now, one app is turning the tables by letting you use all that data they’re quietly collecting to spy on your own WhatsApp friends and contacts.

Available now for iOS, Chatwatch takes advantage of WhatsApp’s public online/offline status feature, which lets your friends know when you’re readily available to talk. Using this data, the app can tell you how often your friends check WhatsApp. It can even estimate what time they go to sleep and wake up each day.

Even more impressive (and invasive), Chatwatch can combine WhatsApp data from two of your contacts to make an educated guess if they’ve been talking to each other.

It's a good demonstration though of how a company like Facebook could make some interesting assumptions from matching lots of data. With this app you can see it in action yourself, and this is only using public data.
