Just as you thought FaceBook was the only contender in the instant messaging-bidding race, here comes another interesting titbit. Fortune is reporting that Google too offered to acquire WhatsApp, for us$10 Billion dollars, almost half of what FaceBook had offered of US$19 Billion (US$16 Billion + us$3 Billion). Also, Google’s bid also apparently came without a promise of a Google board seat, unlike Facebook’s agreement.
Who would you actually have preferred? Google or FaceBook? Sound off!
