South African media giant makes offer to buy Gadu Gadu

Naspers a South African media giant has made an offer to buy Gadu Gadu for $155 million...

Through this investment, Naspers will take control of the leading independent Instant Messenger in Central Europe, with over six million unique users.
Naspers expects to build on this significant network by bringing its
international know-how to bear.

Well what do you think?
Personally, I hope this will be a step forward for Gadu Gadu and it will grow and grow. They are already expanding into Ukraine; however, on the downside it will not be Polish anymore.

I expect more Nigerian (or African in general) spam. It would be the beginning of the end for gadu-gadu..

Do you know where South Africa is? Do you know where Nigeria is?

I'm getting most of my spam from America on Neostrada.

Please, don't generalise when you talk about African countries.

Maybe you should go visit SA - to enlighten yourself a bit?

It should stay Polish

Oh, come on, Sledz! You're one of my favourite animals around here. What if you get a better service? How would you ever know if you get a better service if you don't at least give them a shot?

I appreciate your patriotism, and if this is the only reason, then so be it.

However, statements like the above made by people who have no clue about South Africa is absolutely not cool!

Thats why I joined so I could talk to a couple friends of mine in Poland.

Well I`ll give it a chance, I do like it the way it is now though:)

Maybe much of it might stay the same? Naspers knows that the GG clients like their service. It's the thing to do for any new company taking over from another - keep the good things and improve the not-so-goods. :)
