Having conquered QR codes, Scientology goes all in on WhatsApp - 2019-06-02
Scientology is moving towards modern communications technology. We have seen how they use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media to communicate with non-staff members (known as "publics") and to spread PR messages.
Now Scientology is working with two chat applications to improve internal communication and also to spread their message into countries they have been unable to reach with social media.
For several years Scientologists have used the chat app WhatsApp, as this Registrar for the new Kyalami Castle advanced org does. Scientology is encouraging members to do their OT levels in Africa to boost the stats of this new AO. Your WhatsApp number is the same as your phone number, and you can text or make a voice call without any cost. The app makes it convenient to arrange travel and accommodations to take advantage of the low prices in Africa if you are an American or European Scientologist.
