Facebook to Buy WhatsApp in $19 Billion Deal

Facebook to Buy WhatsApp in $19 Billion Deal | Whatsapp for Facebook | Scoop.it

Facebook just shelled out $19 billion in a cash and stock deal to acquire the messaging service WhatsApp.

Leya Teo's insight:

Facebook has outdone itself with the latest acquisition on its belt after Instagram and the launch of Facebook Paper. Whatsapp handles 54 billion messages a day. That works out to 36 billion outbound and 18 billion inbound messages handled daily. More talent acquisition or removing a competitor from the market?

 

WhatsApp users upload 600 million photos, for example, and send 100 million video messages every day. Now, how will things change for us all especially in sharing of pictures on the go for the 1billion smartphone users and many more to come with this integration?

Leya Teo's insight:

Not quite a surprise for this deal to happen today. This deal is like 19times the deal of Instagram! Instagram, by comparison, currently has one-third as many monthly active users. Of cos, it has to be Whatsapp!

Now, look at the eco system today on your Facebook page, how does yours look?
