Facebook + WhatsApp

Ever since Facebook forked out big bucks for WhatsApp we knew that more and more integration would be happening (or we at least assumed so). Android users appear to be the first to see that integration in their Facebook app with a new WhatsApp button magically appearing which will allow you to communicate with your WhatsApp friends without having to close the Facebook app. I'm sure this is just the first piece of integration we'll see. TheNextWeb takes a closer look.

Facebook appears to be running a trial that features its subsidiary WhatsApp a lot more prominently in the main app.

Users are reporting seeing a dedicated WhatsApp button in the main Facebook app on Android. When clicked, the button acts like a shortcut, opening WhatsApp without the need to leave the Facebook app.
