It’s going around the web pretty hard that Facebook is going to pay $16B, but a close friend of mine told me it’s more like $19 Billion! This is an incredible amount for a Free App, that in my experience is ad free, so I wonder what FB is really getting out of this?

Most likely they are sweating the Heavy data that comes with the 450 Million monthly users that prefer Whatsapp to regular SMS texting. This purchase will give Zucks a great platform for Mobile messaging, and prob put FB’s stand alone messaging app(FB Messenger) to Sleep!

“WhatsApp is on a path to connect 1 billion people. The services that reach that milestone are all incredibly valuable,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement announcing the deal.

Facebook is paying $4 billion in cash and $12 billion in stock for WhatsApp. Great deal for the Whatsapp people, and a slight dig at Snapchat, that turned down Marky Z’s $3B last year! The interesting thing we have to see with Whatsapp being so active, what changes will FB make and how will affect you using it!!!!
