My Facebook stream just got spammed by dozens of friends offering me in some way or another to click the WhatsApp Facebook app link:
It seems they have 2 different messages, send you a request, and share 3 pics with you. Apparently a very appealing concept, my friends keep clicking this one after another. Now I have as well; I clicked 3 times. I admit I even clicked ALLOW meaning I probably sent it to all my friends too, in thinking how awesome a WhatsApp-Facebook App would be.
So if you see this request, DON’T be fooled and press allow, it looks like one big SCAM:
Slot machines and “Flirt with Singles”? Holy crap!
Facebook – Please keep Spam out of my invitations, I like real app offerings, not scams! Also, go to WhatsApp and provide them the data and existing framework, and help them build their own Facebook App.
WhatsApp – Please develop a Facebook version of WhatsApp. Its a great idea, people would start using Facebook as their phonebook, a complete social communication tool. If you make it Facebook will buy you for a BILLION DOLLARS . Think about it, connecting WhatsApp to Facebook will finally create the PROPER modern phonebook of emails + social + phone.
If WhatsApp doesn’t act on this, then I suppose the geniuses that ran the false WhatsApp-on-Facebook campaign will build it first 🙂
