There has been a behemothic growth for WhatsApp ever since it has been acquired by Facebook in 2014 for 19 billion USD. Jan Koum, the founder of Whats App has announced on Facebook that the service has reached 900 million active users per month. It has gained 100 million new ones in less than 5 months. This is definitely a great achievement for both Whats App and Facebook as both of them are ruling the tech world with their social networking services.
In comparison, Facebook’s own Messenger app reached 700 million MAUs in June, mostly due to its split from the social network’s main application. Considering the app has been installed at least a billion times on Android, the new user count isn’t that surprising. We just hope its continued success doesn’t lead to even more divorces in Italy.
