WhatsApp Is Worth It - Analysts - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Social media sticker shock: The whopping $19 billion Facebook is paying to buy the messaging app WhatsApp is bigger than the $16 billion Facebook raised in its IPO, bigger still than Sony's $18 billion valuation, and bigger than the GDP of the Bahamas and Albania put together. And Facebook is paying 14 times more per user than what Raukten paid to buy Viber last week. Facebook's stock gave back some of its 25 percent gain this year at the start of trade.
