[Reuters] Facebook to buy Whatsapp for $16 billion - Page 7

post #61 of 63
What? no waaay. I use Whatsapp since my family text me over their data instead of sending a 25 cent text message everytime. with those 25 cents, you can send about 10 messages through data., probobly alot more messages im just giving an estimate. I also use LINE and Kik if someone like a friend is using it out of the country or if its cheaper out of the country. Sometimes I use TextPlus but its laggy on my cellphone. I tried Viber but its a bit weird for me.

But well, i guess i will have to start using LINE and Kik more, i know whatsapp is going to be crappy and laggy and whatnot once facebook owns it.

Ugh....just realized that the purchase was done mostly via Facebook stock, which is of questionable value....not good.

Actually, FB stock has been steadily rising since august, growth which is explained by taking into consideration that they keep increasing profit from ads per user, it's looking pretty damn good for them. Their only concern at the moment is the dwindling user-base with the adolescents, which they plan on fixing with the Whatsapp purchase.
