What Whatsapp?

You all might have heard that whatsapp is sold to Facebook for $19 billion. Yes, everyone is shocked even me or say I am too surprised. Surprised that an app for messaging is bought for $19 billion and that is a huge amount of money. An app that many experts can build, even I can build an app like that. And I am sure facebook programmers can build an app like that ( they have already build facebook messenger for iphone and android). 
 
Now the question is why facebook bought whatsapp for such a big amount of money. I have many answers to that question. First of all whatsapp have 450 million users, of those users many are on facebook and many are not. Facebook is not trying to pull those users to the social network. Facebook is trying to make a good will in the market. Besides that the main reason for the acquisition is that facebook got a new platform for its ads that will generate a big revenue. They also got a big chunk of mobile market through whatsapp. So all of it is a money game.
 
People are shocked and a number is unhappy, I don’t know why. Lets see how the service changes.

iPhone app review: Banjo


Image

Banjo is a social networking app. You can use it by connecting your social networks to this app. It updates about the ongoing posts, tweets, check-in and as wished, the photos your friends post and update. It also has the feature of public posts. By which we can see the public posts of any place we would like to.

It shows weather of the place you tapped and then the public posts. From which we people can know what is going on our desired place. Overall it is a nice app and it can be used for a long time at least till we are on social networks. Developers has great minds behind this app and it is worthy. But it is free. So enjoy.

Good news: Instagram coming on to web with profiles


 

ImageInstagram yesterday announced that instagram will be on web within a few days. Profiles will be on for the users of instagram. This is a great step. As every fan and user of this photo social network always wish this to happen. Its a great news. Me, you and you are now waiting anxiously to see instagram on our web browsers. Profiles will make insta more beautiful and juicy. 

 

Not everyone knows this. But there is a competition for photo sharing social networking websites. Many of us believes that Instagram is number one. But no it is not Because Instagram is late on web. Instagram was launched in oct 2010. Since then it was only available on ios and android. Flickr is the number one in photo sharing. But I believe that this is time instagram will win the race. What do you think. Instagram is cool becuase it has modern social networking abilities like hashtags or sharps. So keep rocking with insta.
