Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, said, now facebook focuses on combining its chatting messaging platform Whatsapp with Jio Mart, an e-commerce platform of Reliance. This will allow people to involve in small businesses.

Jio said,

“Facebook’s investment will translate to a 9.99% equity stake in Jio Platforms on a fully diluted basis.”

According to reports, the deal has signed at a time when Facebook-owned WhatsApp has got approval to spread its digital payment service in India.
