Facebook will be buying the popular multiplatform mobile messaging application Whatsapp for $19 billion.Whatsapp Facebook Deal

As part of the deal WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum will join Facebook’s board, all though Facebook has their own popular chat app Facebook Messenger, just like they had their own photos platform before they bought Instagram. Like Instagram, WhatsApp will remain its own app but we have to see how long its gonna be the same.As of now Whatsapp has nearly 400 Million users.

What it means to you and me?

As of now there is nothing to worry you can still use the app how you have been using before. But we have to wait and see if the app will remain free or paid in coming days . If you are looking for alternate app check out the Top 5 instant messaging apps.

Do you think BBM will be a myth among users in coming days as Whatsapp is gaining massive popularity and used widely among people do let us know via comments.
