Hopefully they don't force facebook integration. I use whatsapp to talk to my parents back home and they don't use facebook.

Agreed with BC, if they shove Facebook down our throats then i might consider switching to Telegram

Calma. Doubt this will adversely affect anything. Did Facebook buying Instagram turn out to be bad?

Ideas are worth so much. The app is so simple that it would take me 4 weeks max to make it from scratch but it's the innovation that counts. Like flappy bird or temple run or even things like twitter and facebook. You get a bit of luck with things going viral and there you go. Millionaire in few months, billionaire soon after.

19b is insane for a free app but they will earn twice the amount in few years.

Think I need to spend a few months making a shitty, repetitive game that's difficult enough to keep people going back and has a leaderboard / scoring system so people can compare shitty scores.

Facebook and Microsoft have an alliance together. They are basically partners.
