pritvi, 11 Jan 2016nothing wrong with this strategy. why should anyone allow rivals in their own platform. nothin... moreBecause they allow Hike to pay a fee for advertising them. If they don't want to advertise Hike on FB, they shouldn't have let them buy their Ads Service.
ithinkiknow, 11 Jan 2016This is the what is gonna happen when FB comes up with its bloody free basics I don't know how you can link this with free basics. it is just an advertising strategy.
I have some doubts about hike's business model. they never mentioned how they get money and giving away money to its own users. what is the monetization method they follow to spend so much money in advertising and users. something is wrong with hike just like free basics
jrmhjhn, 11 Jan 2016 telegram messenge is the best,,, no question!I agree.... Telegram is the best.
This company is owned by the Mitttal family which owns Airtel which supports differential pricing, now that the boot is on the other foot and they are on the receiving end, will they continue to support this type of pricing
I like hike messenger coz it has better functions and features than WhatsApp. U
You can also send sms text messages to your friends if they are offline.. U can send any type of files like apk apps also WiFi sharing like xender, shareit or zapya. There are huge no of emojis and stickers.
It only makes sense to not advertise for the competition...
BE PRACTICAL, 11 Jan 2016IT is time to show what BHARAT can do. They are challenging a INDIAN messenger so it is time t... moreHike is Indian is a misconception. All major investors in hike are foreigners. Hike has no source of profit or any business model. It is still operating on loss with no clear future or major backers. It is alive on the mercy of its investors' money. Its just another copycat from bharti airtel, like we always do. Please don't compare it with a solid product that whatsapp is. No advertising, just word of mouth, most popular in India and worldwide, available on more platforms, faster, bloatfree, secure. Hike only hopes to amass a huge userbase so that it ends up getting bought by someone or else its doomed.
IT is time to show what BHARAT can do. They are challenging a INDIAN messenger so it is time to show our power . HIKE is free and allow us to send our message as SMS if the other user is offline . WHAT IS BETTER THEN THIS and on the other side WhatsApp charge Rs 55 each year and no feature like hike direct etc.... It is the end of WhatsApp for me... you can also support it by just tapping on the link http://hike.in IT WILL ALLOW US TO INVITE ALL OUR FRIEND THROUGH FREE SMS. FOR EACH SUCCESSFUL FRIEND YOU WILL GET recharge of Rs 25...... SO WHAT ARE YOU THINKING JUST TAP ON http://hike.in . Now say good by to WhatsApp ..
JAI HIND....... JAI HIND........
I personally like Telegram... its lighter than Whatsapp... Whatsapp just got the user base thats it... otherwise it is not great as compared to other IM apps !!
Better in a way
Now more people will come to know wat Hike is
More than ever
Thanx to facebook
nothing wrong with this strategy. why should anyone allow rivals in their own platform. nothing to do with net neutrality
