Yours WhatsApp? I don't understand.

I meant to say that if I put a picture of the World Cup trophy as my profile pic on WhatsApp, then do FIFA also have plans in place for taking that down ?

I guess WhatsApp is pretty much a part of the social media now.

Not really. WhatsApp is an IM service. The whole point I figure is to crack down on fake FB and Twitter accounts to avoid false information from being spread. I doubt you could have any real profound effect with WhatsApp. You'd have to know a lot of phone numbers off hand. xD
