Social media sites Facebook and WhatsApp have to specify in their next hearing if they are sharing data with third-parties after they have been asked by the Apex Court.
 
Supreme Court of India has directed Whatsapp and Facebook to file an affidavit within a month to reveal whether they were sharing the data with any third-party entity.The next hearing is on November 28. 

SC sought to know this after the petitioners, who have challenged the Whatsapp privacy policy, told the court that Whatsapp was sharing data of their users with Facebook and various third-party entities.  To this the apex court directed Whatsapp and Facebook to file an affidavit within four weeks specifying  if this was the case. Both the sites have denied the claims of the petitioners saying they were not sharing any data with third party.
