Facebook buys WhatsApp, so what?!

If you’re not a user of WhatsApp, then this is not really news for you.  

WhatsApp lets you text with other users regardless of the platform for FREE, even internationally.   It has great group chat features and some other additional features.   

However, if like the Dot Social team (Wendy, Ania & Stephanie) you are a regular user, you may have heard or be interested to know that Facebook has bought WhatsApp.    The first I heard of it was a post by Mark  Zuckerberg on Facebook himself yesterday – ‘We’ve agreed to acquire WhatsApp and that their entire team will be joining us at Facebook…”.

While at the moment the impression given is that WhatsApp will remain unchanged, there are the sceptics out there who are discussing and will be watching and waiting to see if there will be new charges and/or if it gets integrated into/swallowed up by Facebook.

For now WhatsApp say – Here’s what will change for you, our users: nothing.

Only time will tell in the end I suppose.
