Facebook owns WhatsApp, and now we’re all confused. Or are we?

Facebook made headlines in 2014 when it bought WhatsApp for $16 billion. At the time, WhatsApp was run by Jan Kuom and Brian Acton, and both men came out very rich after the transaction.
Things have changed recently and Facebook has been all over the news for different reasons, with people from all over the world questioning their precious social media presence and the uncertainty that this now causes. Facebook was the first real social media website, and to some users, it still is the most important site out of them all.
