WhatsApp, Bought by Facebook for $19 Billion.



The surprising tech news of the week is Facebook's $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp, a fast-growing mobile-messaging startup. WhatsApp allows smartphone users to evade phone company limits and send unlimited text messages. The service is free for the first year, and a buck for each following year. Five years after its creation by Jan Koum, a Ukrainian immigrant who dropped out of college, and Brian Acton, a Stanford alum, the app has 450 million users—most outside the United States—and a million new users signing up each day. The eye-popping price tag—about one-tenth the entire value of Facebook—is the shocker that's drawn much media notice. But there's another element to the story that is astounding: Koum and Acton have published a manifesto that radically critiques the foundation of modern capitalism—advertising—and denounces materialism. Facebook's business model, of course, depends upon both.

Google Rumored to Be Acquiring "WhatsApp" for $1 Billion.

Google Rumored to Be Acquiring "WhatsApp" for $1 Billion.
Rumors about WhatsApp being sold to Google were all over the web a few days ago, with talks about WhatsApp valuating itself at $1 billion.

However, Neeraj Arora, WhatsApp's business development head, told that the company is in fact "not holding sales talks with Google", though declined to say more than that.
Rumors about the sale of WhatsApp aren’t anything new. Back in December, it was speculated that Facebook was looking to acquire WhatsApp. The company officials had come out back then and denied any such talks with Facebook.

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.
