Facebook previously announced that it was looking to merge its Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp apps onto one platform.
The three apps would still be separate apps but would all one on one platform behind the scenes, the company has come under criticism for this idea and it could now be blocked.
According to a recent report the FTC in the US may block Facebook from merging its three apps into one platform.
The FTC is apparently seeking an injunction to stop Facebook from doing this, the concern is that if this is done then it would make it harder for the company to be broken up if an antitrust case arises.
It will be interesting to see what happens and what Facebook will do, the company is likely to fight any possible injunction.
