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.
