Google Negotiating $1 Billion Acquisition of WhatsApp Messenger?

Google is rumored to be negotiating an acquisition of WhatsApp Messenger for around $1 billion, according to Digital Trends.

Messaging app WhatsApp is in the negotiating phase over prices with Google in what could be Google’s next billion dollar acquisition, according to an inside source. While the deal started four or five weeks ago, we’ve been told that WhatsApp is “playing hardball” and jockeying for a higher acquisition price, which currently is “close to” $1 billion right now.

Last December, rumors surfaced that Facebook was looking to acquire WhatsApp; however, that deal never materialized.

WhatsApp recently announced that it would make the switch to yearly subscriptions for iOS users later this year.

You can purchase WhatsApp Messenger from the App Store for $0.99.

What this new generation is just not getting, is that information is power. And regardless of how trusting you are, you should never give anyone that much power. Naiveté, my friends... look it up. Look, I'm not trying to sound sanctimonious, or like a Minnesota survivalist, but while the flow of information is undoubtably a good thing, the ownership of information is something that we should all be more weary of. Google already owns way too much, in my humble opinion. The only way you can protect yourself is ----- CODE 23484 ----- ***This user has been disconnected from the internet*******
