Facebook Looking to Acquire WhatsApp

As Facebook makes a mad dash to claim more money from its users, they are also rumoured to be in talks to buy the paid instant messaging app 'WhatsApp', according to TechCrunch.

Facebook, recently having over one billion active users, might be interested in acquiring the messaging app, sources told the website. WhatsApp recently said they were serving one billion messages per day.

WhatsApp would be a viable investment for Facebook, who clearly would want to venture into other means of profitability.
