Smaller firms that can hold on for six months might be up for acquisitions, while the big boys will become bigger. Last of a three-part series.

Facebook launches its mission to make WhatsApp a big money-making venture. It’s not just about Jio.

Facebook is ready to tap the business potential of WhatsApp. An India-centric monetisation plan is being carefully crafted and many steps are being unveiled.
