The services will continue to operate as stand-alone apps, but their underlying technical infrastructure will be unified, said four people involved in the effort.

It also underscores how Mr. Zuckerberg is imposing his authority over units he once vowed to leave alone.

At the time of the acquisitions, Mr. Zuckerberg promised WhatsApp and Instagram plenty of autonomy from their new parent company.

It was obvious right from the beginning that Zucky would migrate everything together. After all, it is so easy to see when he is lying: his lips move.
