Abu Dhabi web developer hoping to attract Facebook’s interest with ShawarmaChat messaging service

ABU DHABI: A Lebanese web entrepreneur is looking to follow in the footsteps of WhatsApp and soon see his creation snapped up by Facebook in a multi-billion dollar deal.

Abu Dhabi-based Fadi Hulbert, 32, is the man behind ShawarmaChat, an online messaging service for people who like Arabic food, and says he is has already offered his technology to with Mark Zuckerberg’s social media giant.

“As soon as I heard about the WhatsApp deal, I immediately sent them an email,” he says. “Sure, I’m not expecting $19 billion, or even $18 billion for that matter, but Facebook currently doesn’t have a dedicated platform for grilled meat sandwich enthusiasts among its products and I hope Mark sees the potential in this exciting area for growth.”

Although Facebook is yet to respond to Hulbert’s email, he says he’s hoping for a call in the next few days. “It is the weekend, after all. I imagine Mark’s just waiting to speak to his lawyers.”

    Could you please send Fadi’s number. I need to place an order for a home delivery. It may not be the call he is waiting for, but I’m famished.
