On the NSA, Zuckerberg looked on the bright side, saying he's grateful that Facebook has received permission to share more about the government's requests for information, so the company could let everyone know, "It's in the thousands, not the millions or the tens of millions like people feared." In fact, he said, "The NSA actually has the industry working together better than I've ever seen it working together before. A lot of the industry is more aligned."
It's always nice to have a common frenemy.
On the purchase of WhatsApp, he predictably gushed, "WhatsApp is a great company and it's a great fit for us. Half a billion people love using WhatsApp for messaging." Kirkpatrick wanted to know if Facebook board members were freaked out by the sticker price, since any return on that investment is probably a long way off. To this, Zuckerberg pointed back to Internet.org and its goals: "Carriers will have a lot of choice," he pointed out, when choosing what basic services to provide customers for free. "They can include WhatsApp because Facebook owns it."
And the very last question was, of course, posited whether Facebook will make another bid for Snapchat, or if will it give up. With a wry smile, Zuckerberg replied, "After buying a company for $16 billion, you're probably done for a while." Sorry, Evan.
