    Funny, I was just reading WhatsApp's TOS few weeks ago and decided not to get one because of it. I don't use Facebook and not planning to get one. Seems like I will still be using good old phone calls and SMS's. No Skype on my phone. :(

    I well, good for WhatsApp, prolly good for people who use both.

    They will ruin it.
    Anyway, there is a swedish developers who are working on a new messenger Hemlis and they claim it will be also secure.
    I hope it comes out soon, cause now is the time.

    With that money, you could build the Burj Khalifa, the One World Trade Center and the Shanghai Tower side by side.

    Why do we allow Facebook to exist again?

    $19billion so the boys in the know at the top of facebook can once again have access to the flagged cache of preteen and teen tits and ass picture/video sexting messages that they were no longer getting access to when the girls all moved to using whatsapp... I guess they think it is worth it.

    currently deciding what to replace Whatsapp with...
    I've had Hangouts installed for a while (very much a second back up service for me as I don't trust google). used kik in the past but not overly keen on using it - nice UI but lacks security. Telegram is now installed and hopefully hemlis will be released soon for further testing...
