The following is a new post issued by WWonline on behalf of First Class Posting. The following are excerpts:
"Earlier this year the tech world was shaken by the announcement that social media titan Facebook had acquired mobile messaging service WhatsApp for $19 billion, said USAToday - Feb, 19, 2014. The surprise registered among tech observers wasn’t rooted in the companies involved, but rather the price tag, which some felt was excessive. Not everyone is convinced the deal represents an overpay, however," said Amy Taylor with First Class Posting.
“Given Facebook’s pivot to mobile and unceasing quest for more user data, the marriage of these companies makes perfect sense,” said mobile expert and entrepreneur Jason Hope. “WhatsApp is growing at a phenomenal rate — a rate that historically has predicted tremendous long-term growth and success. And don’t forget, Facebook also received significant blowback after spending $1 billion on Instagram — an acquisition that looks like an extreme bargain today.”
Amy continues: "The exponential growth of mobile messaging means there is a long list of apps ready to fill the gap. Other major players include WeChat, which is very popular in China, Viber, which was recently sold for $900 million, Line, which has several hundred million users and is popular in Southeast Asia, and Kakao Talk, which is the dominant platform in the large and important South Korean mobile market."
