    The deal, made up of $4 billion in cash and $12 billion in stock, will give Facebook access to the 450 million people using the WhatsApp service monthly.

    "WhatsApp is on a path to connect 1 billion people. The services that reach that milestone are all incredibly valuable," said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO. "I've known Jan for a long time and I'm excited to partner with him and his team to make the world more open and connected."

    Jan Koum, WhatsApp co-founder and CEO, said, "WhatsApp's extremely high user engagement and rapid growth are driven by the simple, powerful and instantaneous messaging capabilities we provide. We're excited and honored to partner with Mark and Facebook as we continue to bring our product to more people around the world."

    If for some reason the deal were to be canned and not go through,Facebook would have to pay WhatsApp a fee of $1 billion in cash.
