Why Was a Facebook Executive Arrested in Brazil? Encryption. | Re/code
Case in point: Facebook executive Diego Dzodan was arrested by Brazilian police Tuesday morning on his way to work for the same reason Brazilian authorities succeeded — albeit temporarily — in having WhatsApp banned from the country back in December: Encryption. Dzodan — who is still detained at the time of this writing — was arrested because of Facebook’s “repeated non-compliance with court orders,” according to a police press release. What does that mean? Brazilian authorities have requested that WhatsApp hand over user messages in multiple criminal investigations over the past few months, and WhatsApp repeatedly claims that it can’t hand over those messages because it doesn’t have them.

Yahoo: Was der Niedergang Apple, Google und Facebook lehrt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Yahoo baut Stellen ab und endet wohl als Ramschware. Der Abstieg des Internet-Pioniers ist auch eine Warnung an Apple, Facebook und Co. [...] Die Krise von Yahoo lässt sich in einer Zahl zusammenfassen: minus 13 Milliarden Dollar. So niedrig bewertet die Börse das Kerngeschäft des amerikanischen Internet-Konzerns inzwischen, hat der Tech-Journalist Matt Levine ausgerechnet. Abzüglich einiger lukrativer Beteiligungen und seiner Bargeldreserven ist Yahoo nichts mehr wert. Weniger als nichts. [...] Die digitalen Mode- und Tech-Magazine, die sie startete, finden wenige Leser. Auch die 2013 gekaufte Blog-Plattform Tumblr entwickelte sich nicht, wie von Mayer erhofft: Von der 1,1-Milliarden-Dollar-Akquisition schreibt Yahoo nun rund ein Viertel ab.

Looking for “the next Facebook”? It’s actually one of Zuckerberg’s own properties: Messenger | PandoDaily
Skype gets eaten by Networks greater than it ever could be, as feature for said Network(apps). Skype is also more than 10 years old. It's hard to disrupt yourself at that size, lots missed the mobile, underestimated the seismic shift of discretionary time spend on now on smart phone vs laptop/pc. Smartphone is less friction. Having an existing network of certain relations is less friction (Google Hangouts vs Citrix Go to Meeting (creating an account is friction, should partner up with Linkedin stupid)). Starting out as Desktop app and doing it really well there, and then just copying it to the smart phone? The smart phone is not a mini-pc/laptop! It's a much closer tight and emotional relationship (studies have showed).

How The Facebook Bubble Is Driving Online Startups Into The Arms Of Offline Advertising | TechCrunch
FB accounts for >70% of all Social Media Ad spending! The rest is spend on Twitter and elsewhere. Programmatic Advertising is a crutch for native Web advertising to compete with FBs ability to slice and dice and analyse every nook and cranny. FB likes to be the web equivalent; Internet.org and asking/offering content creators/news papers to host content inside their Walls. And remember, Google missed this Social train badly, tried w Google+ after failing with Buzz. Was also late with (native) Mobile Search & just got going. And their last quarter(s) hinted at a stall of their advertising business and Wall Street doesn't like seeing this behemoth relying on just one business model while Nest Labs was a defensive acquisition (competing w Apple) and they lost out to FB to acquire WhatsApp. And if any Google X project will be able to live up to AdSense(Google Search) is questionable. Google might begin slowly dying soon in next 5 years by thousand cuts, like MSFT late 90's. Time is ripe.

A Year Later, $19 Billion For WhatsApp Doesn’t Sound So Crazy | TechCrunch
Messaging is the center of mobile. Snapchat is raising at around a $20 billion valuation. And no one cares who owns apps. On February 19th, 2014, we didn’t know any of these things for sure. So when Facebook announced it would pay $19 billion to acquire WhatsApp — an app most American pundits had never used — it seemed ludicrous. Zuck had to be crazy, right? Wrong. Without WhatsApp, Facebook’s international situation would look a lot dicier. And if a competitor like Google acquired it instead, it could have been disastrous. Instead, Facebook possess the most popular messaging app, and has neutralized the biggest threat to its global domination of social networking. Why? Chat Is The Mobile Portal! [...] Its Stories feature has grown into a competitor to Facebook’s News Feed. And Discover could make it all quite monetizable if it gets popular. Snapchat is constantly cited as where teens are ditching your parents’ social network for.

Instagram Hits 300 Million Users, Now Larger Than Twitter | Re/code
It also means that Instagram now claims more monthly active users than Twitter (284 million) and likely LinkedIn, which has 331 million user accounts, but doesn’t specify how many are active. (Instagram’s 300 million figure represents the number of users logging in each month.) Instagram also says those users are posting 70 million photos a day. Facebook has always had a large audience — it currently boasts 1.35 billion users — but now the company has three other standalone services with at least 300 million users: Instagram, WhatsApp (600 million) and Facebook Messenger (500 million). &! http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/10/not-a-fad/ "With growth steady, Instagram is now looking to strengthen its authenticity.

WhatsApp’s First Half Of 2014 Revenue Was $15M, Net Loss Of $232.5M Was Mostly Issuing Stock | TechCrunch
Overall, Facebook broke down the money it spent on WhatsApp as $2.026 billion for the user base, $448 million for the brand, $288 million for technology, and $21 million for other. That left it to chalk up the $15.314 billion difference as “good will” aka the value “from future growth, from potential monetization opportunities, from strategic advantages provided in the mobile ecosystem from expansion of our mobile messaging offerings.” WhatsApp’s goal is still growth, rather than monetization. Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum said when the acquisition was made in February that ads aren’t the right way to earn money on messaging, yet the app wouldn’t be aggressively pushing the $1 a year subscription fees it sometimes charges. Instead, together the CEOs hope to make WhatsApp the top international messaging app first, box out competitors, and then earn money once it’s solidified its position. &[freemium, virtual goods, customisation, virtual gesture store] & see bit.ly/1u5xXkp

Sascha Lobo über die Macht der Mädchen im Internet - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Aber tatsächlich hat das Verhalten insbesondere amerikanischer, weiblicher Teenager großen Einfluss auf Netz- und Medienkonzerne. Denn das Herz der Technologiewelt schlägt inzwischen "social", und junge Mädchen benutzen soziale Medien deutlich intensiver als alle anderen Gruppen. [...] Jüngstes Beispiel ist die Einführung von Stickern auf Facebook, also kleinen, meist niedlich gemeinten Bildchen, mit denen man Beiträge kommentieren kann. Das koreanisch-japanische Netzwerk Line, eine Mischung aus Twitter und WhatsApp mit Facebook-Elementen, hat eine junge, eher weibliche Nutzerschaft; dort ist dieses sehr visuelle Kommunikationsprinzip Sticker groß geworden: Emoticons auf Speed. Nebenbei gibt es interessante Theorien dazu, dass die verwandten Emojis die erste echte, weltweit funktionierende Sprache seien. & http://pando.com/2014/10/08/quartz-coins-the-venmo-line-reminding-us-that-the-under-30-crowd-lives-in-a-totally-different-digital-world/

European Union antitrust officials have sent a detailed questionnaire to competitors and customers of Facebook Inc. and message service WhatsApp as they probe the proposed $19 billion acquisition of the latter by the California-based tech giant. EU antitrust officials will try get to the heart of the competitive landscape and understand what separates a social network from a messaging application, according to a questionnaire sent to them, and seen by The Wall Street Journal. Competitors have until Sept. 8 to reply to the questionnaire, which runs to nearly 70 pages and contains in-depth questions on the ease of switching between networks, how easy it is to create new competitors, and how the new social media industry and its apps compete with traditional telecoms services.

What Facebook’s Messenger debacle says about the company… both the brilliant and the terrible | PandoDaily
But more to the point is what the whole thing says about Facebook. There are two important takeaways: One troubling and one impressive. One that speaks to the company’s greatest Achilles Heel as long as I’ve covered it, and one that speaks to its greatest strength. The first is just how much people distrust and are predisposed to dislike Facebook. [...] But the problem is Facebook is as synonymous with disrespecting your privacy today as Microsoft was for abusing it’s monopolist position in the post-Netscape days. [...] ADOPTION AND MOBILE HOMESCREEN // >> But right now, they are all on going parallel experiments that are ultimately competing to be the thing we open the most everyday when we are waiting in line, killing time, or want to shout out a video, photo or emoji to a pal.

At Google, Larry Page Finds His Right-Hand Man - The Information
When Mr. Page tried in vain to convince WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum not to sell the messaging startup to Facebook for $19 billion two months ago, it was Mr. Pichai who accompanied Mr. Page to the high-stakes talks rather than Vic Gundotra, who was in charge of Google’s social products and would have seemed a more fitting choice. [...] // @nest founder & former Apple exec @tfadell now 'owns' @Google's consumer hardware division, acc to @theinformation (via @verge); Google SVP Sundar Pichai reportedly dismantled most of @Android's hardware initiatives to give Fadell 'creative freedom' w/ future products following the acquisition of Nest || Reply :: The Information is 100% wrong!

WhatsApp Is Actually Worth More Than $19B, Says Facebook’s Zuckerberg, And It Was Internet.org That Sealed The Deal | TechCrunch
Google/Larry Page and FB/Zuck - competing for the first contact with NEW NEW users of the future. ""Today Zuckerberg also laid out a bit more detail about how he sees the role of Internet.org. The idea, he said, is to develop a group of basic internet services that would be free of charge to use — “a 911 for the internet.” These could be a social networking service like Facebook, a messaging service, maybe search and other things like weather."" ___ +++ >>> !!! >>> http://pando.com/2014/06/03/pryte-rips-the-facade-of-altruism-from-facebooks-internet-providing-drone-army/ ""it would be foolish to think that Facebook won’t attempt to make a profit from its “idealistic” efforts.

Costolo’s plan to make Twitter all about entertainment makes perfect sense | PandoDaily
"There are huge dollars in entertainment– more than in news and certainly more than in what your friend had for lunch. Twitter is the only force on earth that argues against time shifting. Sure you can TiVo the Oscars. But you better not open Twitter for two hours if you do. And lastly, with “just” 300 million users or so Twitter desparately needs to go mainstream. Like it or not, this is a generation of consumer Web companies graded on the Facebook and LinkedIn curves. You gotta either have the size of the former or the monetization of the latter. The lowest common denominator on global culture are movies, music, TV, and sports. As his friend Ryan Seacrest can attest, more people vote for American Idol hopefuls than elected officials." || Twitter is now a live stream of what is happening. The shortest & most accessible form to NOW. Not more. Not less. Your hourly quick fix. Part of the home screen. Next to Snapchat & WhatsApp & FB ... + http://bit.ly/1rkVyMh + http://bit.ly/1g1LJeO

Why your dinky little startup is worth billions of dollars - Quartz
Though companies hire trained futurists, technology is still moving to fast to predict where it will go. “Value has become an abstraction because we don’t really know what kind of product is going to make the most money,” Chayka writes. “We have no idea what kind of technology will dominate the commercial landscape over the next decade, let alone century.” For companies with as much money and as much to gain—and lose—as Google, Facebook, and Twitter, it’s better to be optimistic about hyped startups than to let them slip away. Of course, this means that they know some of their acquisitions will be duds and even those that aren’t will be expensive. But it’s worth more to them to stay ahead of the curve.

As Messaging Wars Escalate, Social App Tango Raises $280 Million | Re/code
The moves essentially signal a new era for global Internet companies — one in which communication between people isn’t restricted to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, or even older messaging services like Gmail or AOL Instant Messenger. Instead, more companies have recognized the power of tapping into users’ existing social communication networks, found within the average person’s mobile device phone book. Apps like Tango, WhatsApp and Viber all comb a user’s mobile contact list to instantly connect people to their network of friends.

WhatsApp Was Valued At ~$1.5B In Final Round Before Sale | TechCrunch
Guess the news that Facebook was interested in scooping up the simple messaging app, as well as its exponentially expanding userbase (around 200 million at the time of this investment), drove the company’s worth up a couple of orders of magnitude. The filings add up to the $60 million we previously reported, with Sequoia eventually owning around 20 percent of WhatsApp (we’ve heard “high teens”). Its stake is now worth about $3 billion in cash and stock, around a 50x return on its investment in the company.

Don’t Expect Facebook’s WhatsApp to Make Any Real Money for Years | Re/code
“By being a part of Facebook, it makes it so that [WhatsApp] can focus for the next five years or so purely on connecting more people,” Zuckerberg said. Were Facebook not to have acquired WhatsApp, he continued, the pressure would have increased on WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum to eventually “focus more on revenue models” and monetization over the near term, rather than on the company’s continued growth. [...] “I think by itself, WhatsApp is worth more than $19 billion. It’s hard to make that case today because they have so little revenue, but look at the messaging apps already out there,” Zuckerberg said, pointing to existing competitors like KakaoTalk, WeChat and Line, which are already monetizing (in some cases, quite successfully). [...] 70 percent of those returning to the app on a daily basis. Those levels of engagement are unheard of in Internet circles, and it’s why Zuckerberg and company were so taken by the fast-growing mobile app.
