Beware of WhatsApp hoax

A message is circulating among users of the chat program WhatsApp that the company declared to be a hoax.

The message bears information that the chat service will start charging its users. The texts says, “Hello! Between Friday and Saturday afternoon WhatsApp will start charging everyone except the heavy users. Send this message to 10 people as a power user feature. The icon should then change to the color red. ”

WhatsApp stated in the company’s blog about similar messages in January 2012, “Please consider that this is silly hoax.”
