    The makers of WhatsApp ironically tried to get a job at FB/Twitter before. Take that, Mark Zuckerberg!

    That Being said, $19b is a BIG number, remember FB had bought Instagram for $1b

    That is a crazy price, for that money I would have just done my own and marketed it to fuck....

    Also the article touches on an extremely valid point that these apps are often prone to a flabour of the month mentality...although it has 450 million users, which is on it's side, it is a very simple app. I think it's replaceable.

    We'll see

    WhatsApp's CEO said that if they would compromise on anything when selling WhatsApp to Facebook, WhatsApp would lose its meaning.

    So I don't think that anything will change for a while. Only the owner.
    I still have my doubts about it for maybe 2-3 years from now.

    Maybe it's a good time to build an alternative app and call it Avoid Facebook.
    I see at least six figures of income here!

    I can't figure out how is facebook going to monetize whatsapp to justify such a high investment!

    Oh geez this is one of those reasons where I specifically abandoned facebook for whatsapp to get away from facebook, facebook is just a plague IMO, everything it touches goes to complete shit, next thing you know it you will have to pay for people to see your posts.
    Whats an alternative service to whatsup?
