Like Facebook is gonna pay that much money and doesnt expect a return in their investments. They also said they wouldn't sell their company.

Whatsapp - you will have no say in it - Facebook is basically data mining software for the govt, and you will be, too...

I believe the sentiment, but that's it.

FB can go FI!

And here come the usual "I don't use facebook, I'm uninstalling whatsapp" comments. Its like in the 90s when people would declare "I don't watch TV" to make themselves seem more sophisticated or smarter. Didn't work then, doesn't work now.

While I continue to use whatsapp for now, it's only for a time being, that I believe, it shall stay the same.
Same was told by Instagram team too, some time ago.
What we get to see is, IOS ui and styling is given to android apps and they are buggy as hell.
So long whatsapp, the journey was good, till you came under fb and now, I can just wait for an iOS7 like whatsapp on my android.

The previous owners can come out and say whatever they feel, but until facebook themselves comes out and says it, their words are meaningless.
