re: Acquisitions - [May 2020] VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Yeah the purchase of Giphy by FB that sure came as a bit of a shock ... another one is the recent acquisition of Keybase by Zoom ... people with a love for small independent companies must be feeling the hurt these days.

 

I agree, the takeover of Keybase by Zoom & Giphy by Facebook are classic examples of "big fish gobble up small ones".

As an end-user aware of developments like these, would you still continue using those products or look for alternatives?

 

I'll keep using it as long as it works and as long as they don't mess it up ... regarding Keybase, I was just an occasional user anyway, as for Giphy, well there are alternatives, but none of these apps are critical for me, as long as it works and they don't make it annoying to use I'll just keep using it.

Unless they crash & burn like Wunderlist being acquired by Microsoft, this is valid reasoning as any
