Facebook To Allow Messaging By Phone Number

Soon you will be able to message friends by phone number through Facebook.

They hope to take down chat competitors such as Snapchat, which coincidentally just turned down a $3 Billion offer from Facebook to acquire them.

This works for not only Facebook friends but to message anyone with a phone number.

Facebook is clearly fighting back after Snapchat declined their offer, hoping they can get a bigger part of the messaging market share.

In theory the valuation of Snapchat could go down considerably and they could be forced to sell later down the road to Facebook or another company for far less than the somewhat inflated $3 billion valuation.
