I remember how proud Zuckerberg at saying how Facebook declined aquisition from Yahoo and Micro$oft, say hello to Karma

...except Snapchat is a fad that has no value, and the creators will be kicking themselves for not taking that $3 billion payout.

I think Snapchat will increase further.

I think it'll be dead in the water by then because declining 3 billion at this stage is just greed showing. They likely need to sell it fast because with tech startups (just like in 2000) you never know what will displace you next month.

FB is the same example, see androiphone20's comment.

3 billion for an app that has no revenue and they turn it down??? Just insane. And I like and use the app.. Ask the founder of Groupon how well it worked it for him not to take Google's money and go buy his own island and drink stuff out of a big coconut
