WhatsApp Who Don’t Spam (Hoax)

WhatsApp Who Don’t Spam (Hoax): WhatsApp 'Logo Will Turn Red' Hoax.
Hello everybody. WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.
The WhatsApp webpage notes: Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

And WhatsApp has now issued a statement via its website blog confirming that the message is a hoax.

In fact, the message is just one more lame incarnation in a long running series of hoaxes that have falsely claimed that users must send on a message to avoid a service charge. As the following examples reveal, the same false claims have been targeted at users of other services.

Facebook version: It's official.. signal at 12;20 it even passed on tv. Facebook will start charging this summer.If you copy this on your wall your icon will turn blue and facebook will be free for you. Please pass this message if not your count will be deleted. p.s, this is serious the icon turns blue, So please put this on your wall.

MSN version: Sorry to break the news, but looks like all of those warnings were real!!!!! :o !!! The use of MSN and e-mail will cost money from Summer 2009 onwards. If you Send this message to 18 different people from your list, your little MSN Icon will turn blue and that will make it free for you. If you don't believe Me, go on to ( and see it yourself. Don't forward this message, But copy and paste it so that people will actually read it!!!!!!

Any message that claims that users must send on a warning to a specified number of others to avoid service charges or the closure of their account is sure to be a hoax and should not be reposted.
WhatsApp Who Don’t Spam (Hoax)
The message is a hoax and should not be reposted. WhatsApp has not announced any plans to start charging users to send messages. The message is just one more incarnation in a long line of absurd hoaxes that have falsely claimed that a particular company or service would start charging users if they did not send on a message.
