WhatsApp with Facebook?

February 24, 2014

The mobile app called WhatsApp has been purchased by Facebook for $19 billion. What is WhatsApp? WhatsApp is an app on a mobile device that allows users to do cross-platform messaging. Its users can send and receive SMS and MMS text messages for free.

Why did Facebook purchase WhatsApp? Facebook purchased WhatsApp because they currently have over 450 million users and generate very little revenue. Facebook wants to stay ahead of the competition on mobile devices and will be able to generate more revenue from this purchase.  Zuckerburg plans on making the wireless internet access easier and more affordable in developing countries.

If the internet is going to be easier to access and more affordable that means there will be more internet users. That means having an internet presence for your repair shop is even more important. You need a website and you need be on social media. If your business is not online, you’re losing business.
