Its actually a very good move by Facebook to acquire.....if you look at the new trend....Whatsapp is growing more rapidly than Facebook...In future, call and video call facility with whatsapp will attract more customers.....I have seen many of my frnds saying...Facebook is boring....they selfom get online on facebook but yah..they are very active on whatasapp......However both are having different UI and experience...but the idea is same...Stay Connected !!......

Is the facebook's acquisition of WhatsApp profitable?

The answer to this question is both Yes as well as No. Whereas some would have heard of the $19 billion figure only, the surge in the number has been a result of rising stock of Facebook after its Whats-App acquisition. And then is when Facebook hasn't really tried anything to earn out of it and has focused on the user base of Whats-App on;y. Through some reports suggest that it was foolish to buy a company that made $20 million in sales the previous year(and was making considerable losses) at such a price, it is evident that many people have "moved on"from Facebook to What-App, for eg. students no longer share class notes and news on Facebook, and do so on Whats-App. While the intention of Facebook can be viewed from a positive angle of reaching to more and more people through WhatsApp, the fact that it has paid a price that it may not makeup through its bought product still stands.
So, the bottom line is that there is some anticipatory. Maths involved in the answer to the question, Time would only tell.
