In case you don’t know or don’t use it, Uber is an app for you to hail private cars – or private luxury cars if you feel like splashing out on yourself – much in the same way that Hailo works for taxis. The Uber app has taken off in a big way around the world (not SO much in Ireland just yet, but it still feels like early days here), and it looks like the future team-up with Facebook could push them clear into the lead for the car-hailing apps.
There are rumours that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has had “conversations” with the folks at Uber about potentially setting up the app to be used with the Facebook Messenger app. Another app that hasn’t quite taken off the way it should have just yet, the FB Messenger app will be given a big push over the next few months as THE way to connect online since Zuckerberg essentially bought out WhatsApp recently. Plus, looking even more into the future, expect to use Messenger for gaming when Facebook start getting more involved with another investment they made, since they know also own virtual reality game-set Oculus Rift.
