Last quote about WhatsApp

Will Brooks
I launched that website just completely speculatively and that was pretty much ten years ago, in April 2007. Those were the days when you'd email your friends links to stuff. You wouldn't do it on WhatsApp or Facebook. I just started it like that. I sent it to about 10 friends, who in theory sent it to 10 friends. Luckily, what made it really mushroom was that the BBC Football website picked it up as a sort of curiosity story. From that moment, I never looked back.feedback

Lokman Tsui

If you're only allowed to drive one mile per hour, you're not going to drive on that road, even if it's not technically blocked.feedback

Roosevelt Skerrit

We have very limited telecommunications services; it's by WhatsApp, mainly.feedback

Peter Kaliaropoulos

The Saudi market has a strong appetite for faster data throughput and higher data use packages. The opportunity to monetize the extra data usage will partially offset voice revenue losses.feedback

Emmanuel Agbenonwossi

We don't know what they [the government] want and they are not accountable to anybody. The whole system is a mess right now.feedback

Brian Fishman

Facebook's policy on this is really clear. Terrorists are not allowed to be on Facebook. So I don't think the suggestion that technology companies must be compelled to care is helpful at this stage.feedback

Brian Fishman

It's clear technology companies across the industry are treating the problem of terrorist content online seriously. We are increasingly using automated techniques to find this stuff. We're trying to enable computers to do what they're good at: look at lots of material very quickly, give us a high-level overview. We've also recently started to use artificial intelligence.feedback

Brian Fishman

Making sure that we can understand really culturally nuanced activity in a way that is consistent is a constant challenge. And it's something that requires human beings. We really want, as much as possible, to rely on our ability to use algorithms and machine-learning to do as much of this as possible. But we're never going to get away from the necessity of having human beings to make the grey area calls.feedback

Brian Fishman

Because of the way end-to-end encryption works, we can't read the contents of individual encrypted messages on, say, WhatsApp, but we do respond quickly to appropriate and legal law enforcement requests. We believe that actually puts authorities in a better position than in a situation where this type of technology runs off to mom-and-pop apps scattered all over the globe. There is some limited data that's available, and WhatsApp is working to help law enforcement understand how it responds to their requests, especially in emergency situations.feedback

Adel Abu Hameed

Under no circumstances can the user use an application for video or voice calling without monitoring and censorship by the communications and information technology commission, whether the application is global or local.feedback

Manuel Hernández

This was a private school but not an expensive one. Most parents are hard working families that wanted to give their kids the best possible education.feedback

Ghanem Nuseibeh - Cornerstone Global Associates

Any phone company would rather have people using their telephone lines but this is an important message from the Saudi government that they have to move into the 21st century and not be left behind.feedback

Hamdan Hussain

For instance, papers found here do not meet some requirements, like being acid-free or archival, which is a requirement for high-quality drawing papers. Even when we were looking for coloured papers, we couldn't find anything with the right bulk, grammage, or texture. Finding the right shade was also difficult.feedback

Hamdan Hussain

We feel that notebooks nowadays have commonly become products of graphic merchandising with infinite options for covers, without paying much attention to their utility. The idea was to not look at (notebooks) just as an art supply or a lifestyle product or souvenirs, but to bring in good-quality papers to begin with, and expand the whole perspective of using paper products.feedback

Sameer Singh

How much impact would a $1,000 iPhone really have on UX (user experience) of WhatsApp, or YouTube, or Snapchat? The most popular apps being available on both platforms (Apple's iOS and Google's Android) really makes the experience a bit of a wash, making it harder to justify the price point based just on features. This isn't all that different from the PC industry 10-20 years ago. At one point, a PC was a PC irrespective of the manufacturer.feedback

Brian Acton - WhatsApp

After 8 years at WhatsApp, I have decided to move on and start a new chapter in my life. I am very fortunate at my age to have the flexibility to take new risks and focus on what I'm passionate about. I've decided to start a non-profit focused at the intersection of nonprofit, technology and communications. It's something I've thought about for a while, and now it's time to just focus and execute. I'll have more to share in the coming months.feedback

Hilal Khashan

In the past, people would send postcards and letters. Now, everybody just exchanges holiday wishes on WhatsApp.feedback

Simon Middleton

We put the whole issue to the girls and how they wanted to do it. It is very different to how you would communicate the news to men; that is for sure. It is doing it on their terms and that is the most important bit. So, we notify the girls who are either not playing or starting on the bench 15 minutes before by whatever communication whether that is WhatsApp or by text.feedback

Rebecca Hollington

We know that young people wanting to come to university are digitally savvy – and we need to be as well. For young people, picking up the phone to discuss their future on results day can be quite daunting, which is why we look to grow and adapt how students can contact us.feedback

Paul Hindle

Two or three years ago a lot of call centres found that it was the poor person doing Twitter in the corner that was absolutely deluged with inquiries. People have gone from phones to social to this kind of direct messaging, so we anticipate it will be popular.feedback

Matt Horne

Students sign up for personalised information on the clearing process, course places and help and advice around results day – and this year we're extending that to WhatsApp, so they get alerts straight to their phones. We're using Snapchat influencers to encourage our target audience to sign up for alerts. Students will also be able to contact us through WhatsApp to ask any questions they might have about clearing, results day and coming here.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We can look at messaging platforms in other parts of the world and use that as a floor.feedback

Paul Adams

If you look at the past, News Feed started as just friends, no ads.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The first thing we need to do on Messenger and WhatsApp is get a lot of businesses using it organically.feedback

Tarun Pathak - Counterpoint Research

Twenty years ago, most business was still done on pen and paper. Records were still not kept online. Even 10 years ago, the main communications were done through fax and post. We've now moved from that to WhatsApp and instant messaging. A lot of Indians entered the digital age through their smartphones.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We want to make sure all of us do our part to stop terrorism and so our Facebook policies are very clear. There's absolutely no place for terrorism, hate, calls for violence of any kind. Our goal is to not just pull it off Facebook but to use Artificial Intelligence and technology to get it before it's even uploaded.feedback

Amber Rudd

It is completely unacceptable; there should be no place for terrorists to hide. We need to make sure organizations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

If people move off those encrypted services to go to encrypted services in countries that won't share the metadata, the government actually has less information, not more. And so as technology evolves these are complicated conversations, we are in close communication working through the issues all around the world. We are working in collaboration with the other tech companies now, so if a video by a terrorist is uploaded to any of our platforms, we are able to fingerprint it for all the others so that they can't move from platform to platform.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We're also working to build a business ecosystem around Messenger and WhatsApp. Messenger and WhatsApp both have large communities, and they're growing quickly, with one billion people now using WhatsApp daily. It is still early on the monetisation side here, although we have started showing ads to a small number of people on Messenger. I want to see us move a little faster here, but I'm confident that we're going to get this right over the long term.feedback

Jan Koum

That could mean communicating with your bank about whether a recent transaction was fraudulent, or with an airline about a delayed flight. We all get these messages elsewhere today – through text messages and phone calls – so we want to test new tools to make this easier to do on WhatsApp, while still giving you an experience without third-party ads and spam.feedback

Giles Humphries

We thought our key demographic would be twenty-something urban professionals, but actually our best customers are in their 30s and 40s, maybe a busy couple with young children. They're not having to WhatsApp their partner during the day to have a long conversation about what to have for dinner.feedback

Louis Tomlinson

I like to think that if I came out in some awful tracksuit, they'd all tell me about it on WhatsApp, and in three months time I'd be like, Thank you for telling me, I looked like a right dick!' Because if you get to a stage where you disconnect from those friends from home, other people don't really dare go there… You can surround yourself with super successful celebrities, but you can get swallowed up in the glitz and the glam of it all.feedback

Ronald Deibert

Concerned that martyrdom around Liu may spur similar collective action, as well as being concerned about saving face, the knee jerk reaction of China's authorities is to quash all public discussion of Liu, which in today's world translates into censorship on social media.feedback

Rachel Whetstone - Uber

It's a real privilege to be joining the Facebook family. Products like WhatsApp have become an important part of my life – making it so much easier to stay in touch with my own family and friends.feedback

Nate Cardozo - Electronic Frontier Foundation

The tech industry as a whole has moved toward providing its users with more transparency, but telecommunications companies -- which serve as the pipeline for communications and internet service for millions of Americans -- are failing to publicly push back against government overreach. Both legacy telcos and the giants of Silicon Valley can and must do better. We expect companies to protect, not exploit, the data we have entrusted them with.feedback

Ayesha Siddiqa

It's a fight which is now being carried out by media. What was Burhan Wani actually doing? It wasn't firing his gun. He was basically very vocal: arousing sentiments, and encouraging people his age to come out into the street, to pelt stones and completely frustrate the security establishment.feedback

Bipin Rawat

I wish these people, instead of throwing stones at us, were firing weapons at us. Then I would have been happy. Then I could do what I [wanted].feedback

Abdul Salam Shafi

There is so much injustice in Kashmir. We don't know when we go out in the morning if we'll come back alive. It's better to die like this, rather than in other ways.feedback

Bipin Rawat

The government will have to realise they need to start a political dialogue. It's the only way they can engage these youths in a productive and useful manner.feedback

Vinay Kaura

Social media has become an unstoppable force now. India is not China: it cannot regulate the internet in the way the Chinese are doing. Being a democratic country, you have certain obligations.feedback

Peer Suhail

The militants haven't actually inflicted many casualties. They aren't primarily fighters. What they do is perception management. They create narrative.feedback

Vinay Kaura

The government is clueless. They don't know how to counter it. It is an entirely new battlefield.feedback

Abdul Salam Shafi

He was studying for the medical entrance examination. He told the family he was going for coaching in Srinagar and left. He never came back. He wanted a car: we bought him a car. He wanted a laptop: we bought him a laptop. We gave him everything and still he preferred this.feedback

John Wonderlich

It's a serious issue that part of the legal record is being destroyed. Lots of record-keeping requirements don't work very well at all for the modern world.feedback

Daniel Jacobson

The public has a right to know what people in the White House worked on. Especially at a time where basic facts are often disputed, it is important to know that the truth will one day be made public.feedback

Andrew Ronnie

I am amazed that one guy can dictate to the club what he wears. We worked with David James on the fabric, colour and design and everything was fine. We put a lot of effort into it. David was happy but then he left for West Ham. Peter joined and now we have a problem.feedback

Prashant Tandon

One of our users created a long WhatsApp message on what a public service it was, and people just started sharing it. We didn't do any marketing to get where we are.feedback

Pankaj Jain

Almost 80 percent of the misinformation comes from right-wing groups and just spreads like wildfire.feedback

Zia Salik - Islamic Relief

There's a group of people representing different Muslim charities in London that I'm in contact with at the moment. We're communicating through WhatsApp.feedback

Mak Chishty

And almost certainly you will find that these extremist voices start to shrink...remove their dominance, starve them of oxygen. Make sure they have got a powerful lobby against them. We can do that now.feedback

Mak Chishty

I would like to issue a call for action today for every single Muslim, from a young person all the way through to my mother-in-law who is well in her mid 60s but has got a Whatsapp or a Facebook, to to get on there and start to denounce extremism as not theirs. And almost certainly you will find that these extremist voices start to shrink...remove their dominance, starve them of oxygen. Make sure they have got a powerful lobby against them. We can do that now.feedback

Mak Chishty

We are not trying to defame Islam - that's the last thing that British people want to do. Let's stop being so sensitive about the language.feedback

Mak Chishty

When leaders stand up and say we condemn this, the change has been, we do not believe you, you always do this, where are your deeds, we hear your words, but what have you done to change this?feedback

Mak Chishty

It has been a turning point because people have had enough. I don't agree with that but I understand it. The anti-muslim sentiment online has been incredible it has been strong and relentless and it is there. Muslim communities are genuinely fearful of the backlash.feedback

Mak Chishty

The first thing that needs to change is we need to be comfortable with difficult conversations.feedback

Mak Chishty

I've said this menace lurks within Muslim communities. I mean that - it does. I'm a Muslim, I'm proud of that. But it doesn't change the fact that actually it's within our own communities.feedback

Abi Wilkinson

Voters are not fools. No matter how adeptly Johnson deflects questions about his record, they know he’s one of the architects of their current struggles. Boris Johnson wants to become leader of the Conservative party. We’ve known that for a while now, of course, but it looks like he’s gearing up to have another go. Anonymously sourced stories have appeared in newspapers, claiming that fellow ministers are urging him to oust Theresa May. Mysteriously leaked WhatsApp videos show him demonstratively urging other MPs to unite behind her. It’s unclear for whose benefit, as even casual observers are quite aware that’s exactly what you would do if you were secretly planning a leadership coup.feedback

Boris Johnson

We must not allow the media to spread mischief not least because the public are fed up to the back teeth of politics and politicians and they certainly DO NOT want another election. We have got to stop the narrative the Corbyn somehow won this thing - he barely did better than Gordon useless Brown when we beat in in 2010. The PM is a woman of extraordinary qualities and frankly the public are looking to us to get behind her with discipline and determination.feedback

Ed Vaizey

That's so 20th century. It's all on WhatsApp. We all talk on WhatsApp ... lots of MPs are in lots of different groups. I hope in the next few days we will see a clear acknowledgement that a 'no deal is better than a bad deal' is off the table, that we are going for a Brexit that is going to secure jobs and investment.feedback

Tim Farron

These issues are not going be solved with political gimmicks or by banning particular technologies. Instead of posturing, politicians need to work with technology companies like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, and with other countries, to develop solutions that work to keep people safe. I trust our police and security services … they have some of the most extensive powers in any democracy anywhere in the world. In the choices we make we should provide the resources necessary for those who keep us safe to do their jobs with the powers they have been given.feedback

Paul Bernal

The kneejerk 'blame the internet' that comes after every act of terrorism is so blatant as to be embarrassing.feedback

Amber Rudd

I believe we can get them to be more successful in working with us to find a way of getting some of that information. The area that I am most concerned about is the internet companies who are continuing to publish the hate publications, the hate material that is contributing to radicalising people in this country.feedback

Amber Rudd

We don't know the exact number. What we do know, in engaging with the intelligence services and with the police and with the Border Force, we make sure that they have the tools to track them and to keep them out where we can. We are making good progress with the companies who have put in place end-to-end encryption. Some of them are being more constructive than others and we will continue to build on that. What we are doing is challenging the people who are delivering end-to-end encryption to work with us so that we have a way of keeping people safe.feedback

Uttam Verma

A little into the village, the road was obstructed by a pipe, and the villagers were sitting around armed with bows and arrows, axes and swords.feedback

Uttam Verma

People started coming out of their homes, and the mob kept getting bigger.feedback

Animesh Naithany

The mobs have intentionally killed these men. They knew they were taking the law into their hands, and instead of turning them in to the police they killed them. Rumours of children being abducted spread on WhatsApp like wildfire. Villagers started keeping vigil around their villages. Since they are an illiterate lot, they cannot differentiate between a real piece of news and a rumour.feedback

Shrikant Khotre

Not a single case of child abduction has been reported in this area.feedback

Uttam Verma

The policemen said: 'Are they child stealers? Let's put them in the vehicle and take them.feedback

Julio Ribeiro

All political parties don't think beyond their own importance and power, so they don't reform the police. It's only when the people demand real reform that we will have it, and they haven't done that yet.feedback

Julia Powles

The European commission sanction against Facebook will do little to deter it from harvesting ever more our private data. The indomitable empire of Facebook is being assailed by a volley of arrows from Europe. The latest struck on Thursday: a £94m fine from the European commission for providing misleading information in 2014 when the commission was doing a merger review on Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp.feedback

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

Today's decision sends a clear signal to companies that they must comply with all aspects of EU merger rules, including the obligation to provide correct information. And it imposes a proportionate and deterrent fine on Facebook. The Commission must be able to take decisions about mergers' effects on competition in full knowledge of accurate facts.feedback

Chris Ashton

It's irrelevant. It's just part of the game. If my chance comes I'll take it. If not, I'm 30 so I hope I have a few more years in me yet.feedback

Chris Ashton

I'm not in charge of it. The guy that is – [hooker] Schalk Brits – is too nice.feedback

Jim Killock - Open Rights Group

These powers could be directed at companies like WhatsApp to limit their encryption. The regulations would make the demands that [Home Secretary] Amber Rudd made to attack end-to-end encryption a reality. But if the powers are exercised, this will be done in secret.feedback

Robert Hannigan - Government Communications Headquarters

The extremists of Isis use messaging and social media services such as Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp, and a language their peers understand. GCHQ and its sister agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service, cannot tackle these challenges at scale without greater support from the private sector. Increasingly services not only host the material of violent extremism or child exploitation, but are the routes for the facilitation of crime and terrorism.feedback

Asim Qureshi

You might be surprised to know that the Mohammed that I knew was extremely kind, extremely gentle, extremely soft spoken, was the most humble young person that I knew.feedback

Amber Rudd

We need them to take a more proactive and leading role in tackling the terrorist abuse of their platforms. We need them to develop further technology solutions. We need them to set up an industry-wide forum to address the global threat.feedback

Amber Rudd

We need the help of social media companies, the Googles, the Twitters, the Facebooks, of this world. And the smaller ones, too, platforms like Telegram , Wordpress and Justpaste.it.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Facebook is so much about marrying the physical world with online. When you can make it so that you can intermix digital and physical parts of the world, that's going to make a lot of our experiences better and our lives richer. The camera needs to be more central than the text box in all of our apps. We're making the camera the first augmented reality platform. Even though they'll feel a little bit different in terms of features between Instagram and WhatsApp and Messenger, all the stuff that developers are going to build is going to be fundamentally compatible with cameras in all of these.feedback

Parol Durov

There's little you can do, because if you allow this tool to be used for good, there will always be some people who would misuse it.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

Now I know that if you're trying to catch terrorists it's really tempting to demand to be able to break all that encryption but if you break that encryption then guess what – so could other people and guess what – they may end up getting better at it than you are. I may have invented the web, but all of you have helped to create what it is today. It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want – for everyone.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

I'm humbled to receive the namesake award of a computing pioneer who showed that what a programmer could do with a computer is limited only by the programmer themselves. It is an honor to receive an award like the Turing that has been bestowed to some of the most brilliant minds in the world.feedback

David Kahn

Had the President recommended his own system to Secretary of State James Madison, he would have endowed his country with a method of secret communication that would almost certainly have withstood any cryptanalytic attack of those days. Instead he appears to have filed and forgotten it.feedback

George Washington

By passing through the Post offices [my sentiments] should become known to all the world.feedback

Alexander Rose

If deciphered, the British could identify the senders, arrest them, and hang them.feedback

Sara Georgini

They didn't throw away those habits once the new nation got formed.feedback

Jonathan Shaw

There is a lot of politics at play here. What they (the government) are trying to do is use this moment to nudge the debate more in their line.feedback

Amber Rudd

You can have a system whereby they can build it so we can have access to it when it is absolutely necessary. But I want to draw a very clear distinction here – I support end-to-end encryption as part of cyber security, for families, for banking, for businesses.feedback

Amber Rudd

I would ask Tim Cook to think again about other ways of helping us work out how we can get into the situations like WhatsApp on the Apple phone.feedback

Carmelo Abela

There is a fine line here. We need to of course protect the privacy of the people, but we also have to protect the security of the people.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

There is a question of always balancing the right to know, the need to know with the right to privacy. I think it probably is [broadly right at the moment]. I've been concerned about giving too much unaccountable power to anybody in our society.feedback

Jonathan Shaw

I think there's a lot of politics at play here. There's a debate in Parliament about the whole Snooper's Charter and the rights of the state and I think what they are trying to do is use this moment to nudge the debate more in their line. The problem will mutate and move on. We are aiming at a very fluid environment here. We are in real trouble if we apply blunt weapons to this, absolutist solutions.feedback

Amber Rudd

So what we're trying to do is address this by saying companies who provide this encryption take some responsibility for what is happening on your platforms: you have designed a platform that is now available out there which allows terrorists, paedophiles, murderers, to communicate with each other. Help us round the edges of it so we can lawfully... access information and keep people safe. I do not accept it is right that companies should allow them and other criminals to operate beyond the reach of law enforcement. There are other platforms and emerging trends that are equally worrying.feedback

Brian Paddick - WhatsApp

The real question is, could lives have been saved in London last week if end-to-end encryption had been banned? All the evidence suggests that the answer is no.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

The implications of the government's demands are chilling. If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyone's device to capture their data.feedback

Neil Basu

Nevertheless, we are determined to understand if Masood was a lone actor inspired by terrorist propaganda or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him. If the latter proves to be the case, they will face justice. Whilst the attack lasted only 82 seconds it will remain in the memories of many forever. The thoughts of all those working on this investigation are with those so deeply affected.feedback

Francisco Lopes

He started to move towards the pavement and started to just take out the people that were in front of the car, so, when I realised this, the car was literally just about one metre away, so I had no time to get out of the way.feedback

Amber Rudd

We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp – and there are plenty of others like that – don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other. This terrorist (Masood) sent a WhatsApp message and it can't be accessed.feedback

Amber Rudd

We have to have a situation where we can have our security services get into the terrorists' communications. That's absolutely the case. Of course, I will have those conversations [with the industry], and we will see where they go. These people have families, have children as well. They should be on our side, and I'm going to try to win that argument. What these companies have to realise is that they are now publishing companies. They are not technology companies. They are platforms. I would much rather have a situation where we get all these companies around the table agreeing to do it.feedback

Anne Yeh - Facebook

When Check Point reported the issue, we addressed it within a day and released an update of WhatsApp for web. To ensure that you are using the latest version, please restart your browser.feedback

Shebly Seyrafi - FBN Securities

Remember that (Facebook) paid $21.8 (billion) for WhatsApp, a company which, although it had more users than SNAP, was not generating any real revenue.feedback

Emma Watson

We actually have a group WhatsApp. It's kind of like Pokémon. I'm trying to catch them all right now.feedback

Matthew Lewis

We had like a WhatsApp group, and she invited a whole bunch of us all over the place.feedback

Sam Altman

We do generally see a lot of companies wanting to test their products with YC cos.feedback

Umer Ilyas

It represents a huge opportunity, because in all the big dairy markets - India, Brazil, Pakistan - a lot of farmers have access to WhatsApp.feedback

Joshua Browder

It works with almost every device, making it accessible to over a billion people. Ideally I would love to expand to WhatsApp when their platform opens up, particularly because it's popular internationally.feedback

Alan Duric - WhatsApp

It is vital that politicians educate themselves about the differences between channels and protocols, and what is and isn't safe. It is not acceptable for those people who are entrusted with the running of our countries to be ignorant of others trying to listen in on conversations, and they need advice on how this can be prevented.feedback

Matt Burgess

It's impossible to know whether these groups exist without them being admitted to, which makes them hard to request information about. There are also record-keeping issues with using commercial apps that are end-to-end encrypted, as they make it harder to extract conversations that need to be kept for archives.feedback

Jan Koum

No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us.feedback

Jim Killock - Open Rights Group

When MPs argue for back doors into encryption, they fail to see how vital encryption is for our everyday lives – whether for communicating, shopping or banking securely. The fact that MPs are increasingly using WhatsApp to communicate is rather ironic, given that they have just voted for a law that undermines the privacy of the UK population.feedback

Alan Duric - WhatsApp

The current digital goal for those trying to sway elections is to discredit candidates and undermine them personally. All it takes is one private conversation shared publicly, one internal memo, or one message confirming an unpublicised indiscretion to lose an election.feedback

Matthew Lewis

We had like a WhatsApp group, and she invited a whole bunch of us all over the place. So I said, Yeah, I'll come over.' . At some point in the future [we will start planning]. A little busy at the minute. She's American, so we've got quite a lot of things to discuss about location and whatnot before we get anywhere.feedback

Anthony DiClemente

1) Already slowing growth in daily active users (DAUs) 2.) Slowing monetization (ARPU) [average revenue per user] growth 3.) Fierce competition from larger rivals such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp 4) Rich valuation relative to current and future growth.feedback

Tami Zuckerman

For them it was really about our retention numbers. Fifty percent of our members were coming back to the app six times a day. One of the investors said they hadn't seen that kind of activity since they invested in WhatsApp. Tech is seen as an important sector for the country.feedback

Runa Sandvik

We received useful information within 24 hours of launching.feedback

Anirudh Suri

It [Hike] can't really go head-to-head against WhatsApp ... a more niche strategy might help it survive. WhatsApp is the clear leader in India – as far as both C2C messaging is concerned as well as the use of messaging by businesses for B2C communication.feedback

Jon Brod

Last week our users increased 7 times over the prior week, so just, explosive growth. We have seen accelerating growth since the U.S. election, but this catapults us in a new category. Every month has been a new record for us across all usage and engagement metrics. The genie is out of the bottle. This is here to say -- iMessage uses it, WhatsApp uses, increasingly everyone will use it.feedback

Kevin Weil - Instagram

[We] built on a format that Snapchat invented. It's a format, [and] we believe that format will be universal.feedback

Randall Sarafa - WhatsApp

This is a format that is being broadly adopted, and we're adopting it as well. There are some pretty interesting things that we've done to make it unique to WhatsApp.feedback

Tobias Boelter

If WhatsApp is asked by a government agency to disclose its messaging records, it can effectively grant access due to the change in keys. WhatsApp can effectively continue flipping the security keys when devices are offline and re-sending the message, without letting users know of the change till after it has been made, providing an extremely insecure platform.feedback

Sugar Rodgers

I heard about a bombing that killed 17 people about two hours away, and right there I was like, I don't want to stay,' . The government shut off all lines of communication so I couldn't get on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp. It was pretty scary not to be able to communicate with anyone.feedback

Jan Koum

In terms of security and privacy, what people care about the most is the privacy of their messages.feedback

Nebojsa Medojevic

The oldest one is 73 years old and the youngest is 17, so you see what a farce this arrest is.feedback

Ranko Krivokapic

Blocking such apps is unthinkable in any normal country. I have never heard of that happening anywhere ever in an election.feedback

Johannes Caspar - Data Protection

Facebook now can either adhere to this directive and stop sharing data and delete WhatsApp data that has already been collected, or it can take legal steps against it.feedback

Amit Fulay - Google

If your friend sends you a photo of their pet, you might see Smart Reply suggestions like 'aww cute!feedback

Antonello Soro

Many people are simply unaware of the dangers surrounding social networks. They are a world without limits in which once we've made a comment, posted an image: controlling these sites; controlling the files; becomes very difficult to manage.feedback

Jan Koum

Your data isn't even in the picture. We are simply not interested in any of it.feedback

Jeffrey Chester

Very few people opt out, it should be an informed opt in. No data should be used unless people are informed honestly about how it's going to be used.feedback

Mindy McAdams - Twitter

Phone numbers?!? No! That's absolutely NOT OKAY. I might need to delete Facebook, people. NOT kidding.feedback

Jeffrey Chester

This is a strong-arm tactic on the part of Facebook. They continue on a campaign on to run roughshod on our privacy rights.feedback

Max Wolff

Google's making sure they don't get left behind in a world dominated by the WhatsApp, and the Snapchat, and the FaceTimes and the Apples, who are basically their major competitors.feedback

Jeff Lawson

We expect to add new customers in the coming quarters. As our customers are growing their businesses and they have more end-users to communicate with ... that also grows Twilio's opportunity and revenue.feedback

Dan Guido - Trail of Bits

With thousands of people in a single WhatsApp chat, it only takes one person to get captured while their phone is unlocked to discover every planned detail.feedback

Tim Strazzere

ByLock is an insecure messaging application that is not widely used today. Anyone who wanted to reverse engineer the app could do so in minutes.feedback

Heather Bellini - Goldman Sachs Group

When coupled with emerging bets on platforms such as Messenger and WhatsApp, we continue to see an unparalleled product roadmap. The strength in the core Facebook app is continuing and newer monetization opportunities such as Instagram and video are quickly following as MAUs and the number of advertisers are growing.feedback

Bob van Dyk - Naspers

Something that we've been confronted with is that because there is so much competition for the chat product, you need a certain audience engagement before any of those other products can become mainstream.feedback

Christopher Soghoian - American Civil Liberties Union

Encryption is best when it is hidden, invisible to the user and turned on by default.feedback

Brad Gerstner - Altimeter Capital

This is the intel on the inside for all communications gear from WhatsApp to Uber.feedback

Michael Kent

We can see that as the world increasingly uses WhatsApp and Viber, we think money transfer will be an obvious use case of expanding those services.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

They haven't yet turned on the monetization spigot for Messenger or WhatsApp, so there should be significant headroom still.feedback

Jan Koum

We've been working for the past two years to give people better security over their conversations on WhatsApp... People deserve security. It makes it possible for us to connect with our loved ones. It gives us the confidence to speak our minds. It allows us to communicate sensitive information with colleagues, friends, and others. We're glad to do our part in keeping people's information out of the hands of hackers and cyber-criminals.feedback

Jan Koum

I'm proud of our team for hitting this milestone: now every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end-to-end encrypted by default if you and the people you message use the latest version of our app. Even your group chats and voice calls are encrypted. We're glad to do our part in keeping people's information out of the hands of hackers and cyber-criminals.feedback

Peter Eckersley - Electronic Frontier Foundation

The F.B.I. and the Justice Department are just choosing the exact circumstance to pick the fight that looks the best for them. They're waiting for the case that makes the demand look reasonable.feedback

Randy Guisto

The platform's overall growth is underwhelming. They have plateaued and can't look to India or China as those markets are dominated by messaging apps like WhatsApp, as well as Apple (O:AAPL) and Google's proprietary, pre-installed platforms.feedback

Alexander Steinhart

Smartphones and the Internet are like some sort of happiness providers that we keep in our pockets. It's a bit like being drawn to a slot machine in a casino. Notifications like a message from a friend or an important event are like points that we expect to receive. We are constantly under tension and this stimulates emotions within us. But 90% of the time, what is happening is not that important.feedback

Nina Kov

In one case at Keleti Railway Station in Budapest, we showed the app to refugees, and that is how they found out that Germany was imposing controls. They learnt this from us first, because they could see it translated into their own languages.feedback

Nora Shenouda

The smartphone is not merely an expensive accessory for refugees. The information it provides does not just save them time and money. It can also save lives.feedback

Jan Koum

When advertising is involved, you the user are the product.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

No one in the history of the world has ever done something like this.feedback

Rick Summer - Morningstar

This is a tacit admission that Facebook can't do things that other networks are doing.feedback

Tim Bradshaw - Financial Times

This is a very hot market at the moment, there have been many different of these chat apps popping up. There's WeChat in China, there's Line in Japan and other parts of Asia – but WhatsApp is by far the biggest of all of them, which is why Facebook has paid such a huge price.feedback

Rick Summer - Morningstar

They can't replicate what other companies are doing so they go out and buy them. That's not all together encouraging necessarily and I think deals like these won't be the last one and that is something for investors to consider.feedback

Jonathan Teo

Facebook is more about content and has not yet fully figured out communication.feedback
