Whatsapp Now Bigger Than Twitter; Carries More Messages Than Facebook
Whatsapp’s Chief Executive has told a conference that the messaging application is now bigger than twitter and carries more messages than Facebook.
Without releasing a figure on how many people are on Whatsapp, Jan Koum did say that it carried more than 20 billion messages per day which is double what Facebook does.
Remarkable mind-boggling figures if you ask us. It really should not be surprising given the ease of use that it has. The fact that it works pretty much like your text messaging without the heavy overhead makes it a hit. Also add that there are no advertising on the platform – Kloum says they will not go that route. We hate adverts. Even the ones that sneak up you on Twitter.
At 99c per year, we co-sign the movement. We really do.
Mind you, to show you how excited people in Zimbabwe are about the application, urban grooves singer Nox has a song called Whatsapp.
In fact we now have a whatsapp number here at 3-mob. +263776595560… We do respond you know. Assuming that… well we do respond.
