Some Worthy Words Of Advice From Mark Zuckerberg To Apple!

Some worthy words of advice from Mark Zuckerberg to Apple!

Mark Zuckerberg seems to have entered into a war of words with Apple and its CEO Tim Cook. This happened after Cook criticized advertisement-supported businesses such as Google and Facebook for ignoring the needs of customers. He pointed that for Facebook and Google, the customers were merely products. The business models of Apple and Facebook are quite contrast and this could be one of the reasons that top level executives of both these companies have decided to rough it out publicly now. While the business of Facebook hovers around collecting personal information of users and selling it to advertisers, so that they can generate business, Apple sells hardware products and uses little personal data. Cook has been using this point to his advantage and has been making public appeasement on the topic. He says that users should be going for Apple products if they do not want their personal information [+more]

It Could Be A Case of Big Fish Eating The Small One: Why Would Facebook Buy Whatsapp?

why would facebook buy whatsapp

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook has announced its plans to buy fast-growing messaging service Whatsapp in a $19 billion deal in cash and stock. This is an unprecedented purchase as the deal one can consider closest to this was done by Microsoft when they bought Skype at a price of $8.5. Incidentally, Facebook also took over Instagram at only $1 billion last year, while Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten bought Viber at a modest $ 900 million. So, why would Facebook buy Whatsapp, and at this price? Industry insiders and M&A experts say that Facebook acquisition of Whatsapp–even Instagram–suggests their inability to develop such good apps. This deal is more than the amount Facebook raised in its own IPO and has left investors worrisome. Many recent news reports and jokes floating in cyberspace suggest that Facebook was turning into a network for the ageing. Its population of active teenage users was fast depleting. [+more]

And as addicted as we are to Facebook, do we really need a completely dedicated Facebook smartphone? Or is an Android or iOS Facebook app more than adequate? Facebook is trying to expand beyond being just a social network that keeps you connected with your friends. With its active push for [+more]
