I never see this coming, Facebook aquires the messaging service “WhatsApp” for $19 billion. How true are the news? Let’s find out in their official blog statement.
“Almost five years ago we started WhatsApp with a simple mission: building a cool product used globally by everybody. Nothing else mattered to us.
Today we are announcing a partnership with Facebook that will allow us to continue on that simple mission. Doing this will give WhatsApp the flexibility to grow and expand, while giving me, Brian, and the rest of our team more time to focus on building a communications service that’s as fast, affordable and personal as possible.”
That’s great news for everybody, this means that the messaging service has the insurance of its longevity service to the users. Let’s see the word from Facebook Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
In the Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook Timeline:
“I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire WhatsApp and that their entire team will be joining us at Facebook. Our mission is to make the world more open and connected. We do this by building services that help people share any type of content with any group of people they want. WhatsApp will help us do this by continuing to develop a service that people around the world love to use every day.”
So it’s true that Facebook acquires the WhatsApp messaging service, and take note that it will continue and grow its service to the people around the world.
As you may know, the majority of WhatsApp users are teenagers, which has more potential to increase in terms of social/online conversations usages than Facebook. Well, it seems that they try to avoid their parents or boss atmosphere, and the number of users using WhatsApp grows not only in the part of the US, but goes beyond global audience.
