"What is WhatsApp? WhatsApp is a mobile messaging service that functions as a kind of a social network. WhatsApp users can send messages to one or many recipients at the same time, and they can even share their locations.

In many ways, WhatsApp's users are just the kind of customers Facebook is looking for. They are extremely active, sending more than 600 million photos a day -- more photos than Facebook (FB, Fortune 500) users upload. A whopping 70% of WhatsApp users are active every day. By way of comparison, 62% of Facebook users are active daily.

People around the world send 19 billion WhatsApp messages per day, including 200 million voice messages and 100 million videos."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.

Radio podcast from the Wall Street Journal This Morning.  Sound reasons to just leave Facebook and stop using that network altogether.  The main issue in debate for no longer using the service?  Very serious privacy issue and violations.  Yes, Facebook is now invading your privacy without your knowledge or approval.

  Who needs to support a company that has no respect for others?  Time to just say goodby.

Ever wonder if some of the most popular people are really as popular as they seem to be?  Is it possible that maybe, just maybe they are not as popular as they would have you believe?  Take a look at this one site that has uncovered fake and inactive followers for some of Twitter's most popular people. Is Lady Gaga nearly as popular as she looks?  No.  47% of her listed following is fake and another 30% is inactive out of 28,445,916 followers.  That;s more than 75% of her listed following.  She still has a very impressive number of real followers, but no where near what is being shown.

Rihanna's numbers are even worse.  With a following of 23,314,400 followers, 48% are fake and another 36% are inactive leaving only 16% actively following her.  Again, the real number is still impressive, but over 84% of her following does not exist.

CLICK HERE to see more percentages on other people and how this has all been calculated.

Is there some company out there that sells fake followers for Twitter?  Buy 1,000 followers on Twitter for only $99.00?  Special for this week only?  Get 100,000 followers for a mere $1,300.00?  Surprise your friends.  Well we have not found a pay for network yet, but we have found a free network that promises to help you grow your following and Lady Gaga is on the list.

Grow your network on Twiends.  Sign in with your Twitter account and from your Facebook account.  Get more followers by adding your account by country and by interests.  Could this be where the fake followers or the drop outs come from?  Hard to say.  Guess it only goes to show, not everything is what it may seem.
