Re: So much
Like WhatsApp, Facebook may have no plans to integrate this any time soon. Oculus VR is still quite a new company with developing technology. Like Laurianne mentioned, part of its acquisition could be for talent, too.

Re: So much
@Madhava good question. I read an article yesterday about some of the Kickstarter investors in Oculus who weren't very happy about the probable answers.

Re: Good or bad?
It seems like we are in an acquisitions bubble right now. But like the Google/Nest deal, this could be as much about the talent FB acquired as anything else.

Good or bad?
This acquisition surprised a lot of people because it doesn't seem like a natural fit for the social network (though Facebook believes otherwise). What do you think -- could this be a great acquisition for Facebook's future, or will the social network look back at it as a very expensive flop?
