Heading is misleading
Hi -- the post is informative ... however -- the heading is misleading. 

Facebook's WhatsApp Mega Deal: 5 Rivals


when you say rivals -- people think rivals to whats app -- 

Also -- they 5 deals mentioned in the post are 5 different deals. They have no relation to the heading.

any way -- good attempt.

 

thanks
