While both Telegram and Signal have been making fun of WhatsApp with memes on their social media platforms, the latest to take a dig at Facebook is software giant Microsoft. In a tweet, via its official handle, Microsoft-owned video conferencing platform Skype says that the company does not sell user data to third parties. It comes with a link to Microsoft’s privacy statement.
“Skype respects your privacy. We are committed to keeping your personal data private and do not sell to 3rd parties,” says the tweet.
