Facebook Buys WhatsApp

The news about Facebook buying WhatsApp for 19 billion dollars has certainly got everyone’s minds racing. While some suspect that WhatsApp services will now be merged with Facebook Messenger, others are worried about their privacy and the ads that will keep flickering on their smartphone screen. Well, we will find the answers to these worries with time but there are very high chances of WhatsApp enjoying its independence just like the photo sharing app Instagram, which Facebook bought in the year 2012. However, one of Facebook’s five co-founders Mark Zuckerberg ensured that much of users’ internet activity happened through Facebook and its apps.

Music For Your Ears

A huge section of teenage life involves locking oneself in bedroom, putting on headphones and getting lost in the beauty of a world where nothing can go wrong. And this applies not only to our teenage times, but also takes us through most of our adult life as well. Whether it be the drumming of the rock and roll period or the pop songs that makes you want to dance, music drowns our sorrows and brings with it a reverence that leaves life rejuvenated.

Mysterious Mars!

As one of our closest and most familiar neighbours in space, Mars has served as the source of legends and theories ever since the storytellers first slept under the stars. With its 24.6 hour long day and snowy polar caps, it faintly resembles Earth. And thus Mars is really the only place that looks favourable for life—whether aliens or as a station for humans.

English Language Is In Danger

The trend of hash tags (#) started out harmlessly. They first originated on the social networking site Twitter in the year 2009, followed by Instagram in the year 2011 and finally on Facebook in the year 2013. However, with time hash tags have become a fashion, so much so that people have started using them in their regular conversations.

Et Tu Twitter?

As shocking as it may sound but the word “feku”(a term coined for Narendra Modi by the twitterati meaning a person who constantly brags and lies), applies more to the world of Twitter than Modi himself.

Smile Please!
