Facebook to write a contract with Whatsapp

Facebook is willing to write a contract with Whatsapp. Facebook is trying to create more traffic with Whatsapp as they successfully did it with the contract they wrote with Skype....!!!!

What is Whatsapp?

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.
In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

Why Don't they sell ads?

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we dont need. - Tyler Durden, Fight Club
Brian and I spent a combined 20 years at Yahoo! working hard to keep the site working. And yes, working hard to sell ads, because that's what Yahoo! did. It gathered data and it served pages and it sold ads. We watched Yahoo! get eclipsed in size by Google...

At the moment, no real details are emerging about the deal. However, there is one good reason why it could al fall through – ads. WhatsApp is currently ad free, however, as users will know, Facebook loves ads. But, one of the founders fo the popular app ad this to say about ads – “Advertising isn’t just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought.” , which could be a spanner in the works for Facebook.

If they do manage to acquire it, one of the big questions will be whether they intend to leave it running as it is or incorporate it into Facebook Messaging.  More details as they become available .
