EPIC does have a history of complaints that was accepted by the FTC. FTC took action against Google Buzz, Facebook's privacy change settings and Microsoft Passport in the past as per the complaints filed by the group.
EPIC said,"Our complaint urges the FTC to investigate whether there are sufficient privacy protections in place to continue to shield the data of WhatsApp users from access by Facebook -- which (for many users) was the very feature that made WhatsApp so appealing in the first place."
Facebook responded,"As we have said repeatedly, Whatsapp will operate as a separate company and will honor its commitments to privacy and security."
