Default Facebooks $19 Billion purchase of whats app.

So facebook has bought the messaging app WhatsApp. with all the people who dont really like facebook and people with privacy concerns on here, just thought id let you know. We know they are going to use the data they gather from that for ads, just like google does. here the article on it

Noooooooooo. I never tried WhatsApp, but I know the Facebook Developers are really bad at the developing for Android platform. Their Facebook apps are one of the worst apps I ever saw on the Android.

It's not at all. The only relationship is its about an android app and our phones are powered by Android.
