whatsapp-logos-1024x795Remember “whatsuuuuupppp”?Everyone’s saying “WhatsApp” after Facebooks big buy this week. It’s an instant messaging service they bought for the bargain price of $19 billion. That’s about a buck for every message sent on it a day (20 billion messages sent per day) which is actually double Facebook messenger.  Which makes sense. Most people post things on their friend’s walls on Facebook, they don’t send messages very much. That kind of takes the social out of it. But for $19 billion they probably could have bought a small European nation. Estonia is only worth $29B. I’m sure they could have found 3-4 people who could have written a message app for that much.
