Gara-Line just like the Gara-keitai of yesterday. Funny how my expats friends in Japan don’t use WhatsApp while the rest of the world does.

I get what you're saying but Line is the significantly better product in my opinion. I persuaded a few of my friends in Europe and North America to download it just to keep in touch and I was surprised to find that they are now using it amongst their own friends and family.

Line is definitely better than a lot of other messaging products that are popular in the rest of the world. WhatsApp also has some serious privacy concerns since they got bought by Facebook, and Facebook spies on it's users.
