When it comes to the world of mobile messaging, you can be sure that it is not short of any kind of competition at all. In fact, this particular market has gotten so competitive, you could say that us consumers have ended up for the better. After all, the companies involved in mobile messaging intend to deliver the best bang for our hard earned buck, so they had better deliver the best possible effort. Some of the mobile messaging options include proprietary solutions such as iMessage, in addition to cross-platform solutions including Facebook, WhatsApp, Hangouts, BlackBerry Messenger, Snapchat, Skype, Line, and WeChat, among others.
On Device has performed a survey that comprised of 3,759 Android and iOS smartphone owners across US, Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia, and China, and they concluded that WhatsApp is more popular than Facebook now, making it the numero uno mobile messaging platform. Do bear in mind that there were no Windows Phone users mentioned in the survey, not forgetting the fact that the whole European continent is missing from the survey. Apart from that, the question that was posed read like this, “Which social messaging app do you use at least once a week?”, so it does not have anything to do with the frequency of use or number of messages processed. In your opinion, who would come up tops?
