What Mark Zuckerberg Founder and CEO at Facebook said after acquiring Whats app?

A day back Whats app was purchased by Facebook.

Mark Zuckerberg
 " I’m excited to announce that we’ve agreed to acquire WhatsApp and that their entire team will be joining us at Facebook.
Our mission is to make the world more open and connected. We do this by building services that help people share any type of content with any group of people they want. WhatsApp will help us do this by continuing to develop a service that people around the world love to use every day.
WhatsApp is a simple, fast and reliable mobile messaging service that is used by over 450 million people on every major mobile platform. More than 1 million people sign up for WhatsApp every day and it is on its way to connecting one billion people. More and more people rely on WhatsApp to communicate with all of their contacts every day.
WhatsApp will continue to operate independently within Facebook. The product roadmap will remain unchanged and the team is going to stay in Mountain View. Over the next few years, we're going to work hard to help WhatsApp grow and connect the whole world. We also expect that WhatsApp will add to our efforts, our partnership to make basic internet services affordable for everyone.
WhatsApp will complement our existing chat and messaging services to provide new tools for our community. Facebook Messenger is widely used for chatting with your Facebook friends, and WhatsApp for communicating with all of your contacts and small groups of people. Since WhatsApp and Messenger serve such different and important uses, we will continue investing in both and making them each great products for everyone.
WhatsApp had every option in the world, so I’m thrilled that they chose to work with us. I’m looking forward to what Facebook and WhatsApp can do together, and to developing great new mobile services that give people even more options for connecting.
I've also known Jan for a long time, and I know that we both share the vision of making the world more open and connected. I'm particularly happy that Jan has agreed to join the Facebook board and partner with me to shape Facebook's future as well as WhatsApp's.
Jan and the WhatsApp team have done some amazing work to connect almost half a billion people. I can’t wait for them to join Facebook and help us connect the rest of the world."

Apart from Politics....Whats app is Purchased by Facebook....

Today's News is Whats app is purchased by Facebook for the damn 19 billion dollars..I listened this news in the morning & at same time, i started converting this amount into Indian Currency which comes out to be around 123500 crore Rupees..Great Achievement by Whats app. You might know that Indian population is around 1.21 billion, so if the whole money is divided in whole Indian population then every single person will get around 1000 Rs each. This is just to know how much amount this is.
For sometime the advertisement that whats app was giving was that they don't sell advertisements. They really thought apart from crowd.
This Whats app was started by two guys Jan Koum & Brian, who were working in Yahoo for sometime.
Jan koum has written in his blog yesterday :-
 "Brian and I spent a combined 20 years at Yahoo!, working hard to keep the site working. And yes, working hard to sell ads, because that’s what Yahoo! did. It gathered data and it served pages and it sold ads.
We watched Yahoo! get eclipsed in size and reach by Google… a more efficient and more profitable ad seller. They knew what you were searching for, so they could gather your data more efficiently and sell better ads.
These days companies know literally everything about you, your friends, your interests, and they use it all to sell ads.
When we sat down to start our own thing together three years ago we wanted to make something that wasn’t just another ad clearinghouse. We wanted to spend our time building a service people wanted to use because it worked and saved them money and made their lives better in a small way. We knew that we could charge people directly if we could do all those things. We knew we could do what most people aim to do every day: avoid ads.
No one wakes up excited to see more advertising, no one goes to sleep thinking about the ads they’ll see tomorrow. We know people go to sleep excited about who they chatted with that day (and disappointed about who they didn’t). We want WhatsApp to be the product that keeps you awake… and that you reach for in the morning. No one jumps up from a nap and runs to see an advertisement.
Advertising isn’t just the disruption of aesthetics, the insults to your intelligence and the interruption of your train of thought. At every company that sells ads, a significant portion of their engineering team spends their day tuning data mining, writing better code to collect all your personal data, upgrading the servers that hold all the data and making sure it’s all being logged and collated and sliced and packaged and shipped out… And at the end of the day the result of it all is a slightly different advertising banner in your browser or on your mobile screen.
Remember, when advertising is involved you the user are the product.
At WhatsApp, our engineers spend all their time fixing bugs, adding new features and ironing out all the little intricacies in our task of bringing rich, affordable, reliable messaging to every phone in the world. That’s our product and that’s our passion. Your data isn’t even in the picture. We are simply not interested in any of it.
When people ask us why we charge for WhatsApp, we say “Have you considered the alternative?”
Without Selling Advertisement they have advertised their product.
They thought Differently.

Hats off to Whats App.

Delhi went hottest on cold rainy night.

Latest News is Mr. Kejriwal is giving Resignation from his CM post. Delhi will break all the records of being hottest. For the last few months every second was about to watch in Delhi. Arvind Kejriwal is playing cricket with bat in his hand & all fielders favoring his destiny. Every times he hits the ball , every time fielders misfielded. Great Entertainment , Great Drama...
Actually this may be a clever step by him. He is going off the Government with very honest & clean image. Common people will start thinking again for his honesty but don't forget that Lok sabha elections are just an inch ahead. And with this step State elections will be  held again for sure & its cent percent that state elections will held with at same time with lok sabha elections. Now Janta will deviate from Modi for sure. Kejriwal thinks really great. His words are really true that He will make others learn Politics.
I really cannot understand why he has given resignation? If this Janlokpal bill is not passed then what ? This resignation step should be the last after completing all the other stuff. If Kejriwal as done all the other works related to his manifesto? Initially we were thinking of giving him time to show his performance & now? Actually he pissed off all people. There were so many people who wants to see him as CM..There were lots of people who wants to kick off the contractual tag from their forehead. Really Stunned with his Decision of Resignation. He should be there for some more time for completing some important works. He is actually going away from his responsibilities. I am not saying he is not honest. He may be Honest but to hell with honesty. Honesty honesty bored of listening this word. Truth is he wants Lok sabha elections also without doing enough work..I was thinking he will change the system, he will do this thing...he will do that thing..But i got the answer of my questions. India will remain same, so does delhi and 28 states.

In the end i want to share some lines with you people:-

"Mr. Kejriwal...Ne kiya Dhamaal..
Chaldi unhoney ekk aur chaal..
Sabhi Mantriyon ko kiya behaal..
Socha tha rahogey aap kuch saal..
Badlogey desh ke kuch soor aur kuch taal..
Par Chorh gaye aap to humey hamarey haal..
Na badla Delhi aur na mantriyon ka jaal..
Wah Kejriwal...wah Kejriwal  "

Will Modi-fication happen in India?

Every where i go around i listen up the same noise , the same politics !! Modi will or Rahul will or who will?? But who knows who will? If third front a new trick of congress? If this third front is formed to cut votes of Mr. Modi ?? This is first time that Congress & BJP are using new ways for Advertisement. Every where i have to see congress or BJP advertisements only. May be it is a hoarding or internet. Even if i open up you tube for listening song, i have to listen up the speech of Mr Rahul first. Though in Delhi its too cold but climate is always warm with Arvind Kejriwal. Every day a new issue , a new agenda.. Today i am stunned with the announcement of Anna ji. He has also printed a list with 17 points. Now if Arvind agrees to his points then Anna Hazare will start supporting him which will prove a new catalyst in Lok sabha elections. I think if  he starts supporting Arvind then it will surely affect Lok sabha elections as all supporters of Anna will then blindly support Arvind too. So the competition is going to be healthy at national level. I have one more doubt in my mind about the Delhi Government after Lok sabha. Till now it appears that Congress is supporting Arvind just for the cause of Lok sabha.According to me if at National level congress wins then it will stop their support to Arvind but if they loose then they will continue their support. Every body is seeing the growth of Gujrat for the last 10 years and everybody wants the same development at National level. Most of the senior Journalists are saying Modi-fication will happen in India.  But this is not Mathematics where 2*2 is always 4, this is purely politics where what can happen no body can predict before time as Predictions can be wrong. But when i talk to people around me everybody is swinging in the mood of Modi-fication.
