PARIS, France (AFP) — The popular messaging app WhatsApp asked its some two billion users on Thursday to accept new terms that will allow it to share more information with its parent company Facebook and roll out advertising and e-commerce.

WHILE she believes artistic swimming in Jamaica has made significant strides over the years, Vice-President Maureen Smith is calling for more support to ensure the continued growth and progress of the sport.
Jamaica's artistic swimmers
Smith outlined that, like all sporting disciplines, their sights are set on World Championships and Olympic Games qualifications, but without adequate backing the task of bringing that vision to fruition will be that much harder.
Jamaica's artistic swimmers have over the years competed successfully in a several international competitions but they soared to new heights last year when members of the Island Aquatics Synchro club had a book written about them and more importantly, were featured on Beyonce's Grammy-nominated visual album Black is King, appearing in the video Mood 4 Eva.
Initiatives such as the music video have played a major role in boosting the country's brand in the sport and Smith pointed out that they are now aiming to build on that, as she maintains a positive outlook for the year ahead.
