Facebook (FB) & WhatsApp (WA) deal – Another Perspective

Here is another view http://www.hindustantimes.com/brunch/brunch-stories/whatsapp-with-mark-zuckerberg/article1-1189436.aspx on the eye popping FB – WA deal.

A newer aspect is as to how FB acquired Whatsapp purely for data mining purposes. Data is goldmine especially for company like FB who can access to the entire phone book directory of users and use that data for advertising purposes. 

Only time will tell as to whether the deal was overpriced or not.
