According to WhatsApp, “Just last year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month. Today, we are excited and proud to share that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every day to stay in touch with their family and friends. Whether it’s sharing personalized photos and videos, connecting through video calling, or keeping friends updated throughout the day with Status, communicating on WhatsApp has never been easier or more personal.”
This is indeed a huge milestone to be able to jump from 1 billion monthly users to 1 billion daily users. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg had expressed his opinion several years ago that WhatsApp could hit the 2-3 billion mark, and it seems that the app is well on its way to do so. Zuckerberg had also previously stated that he believes the company is worth more than $19 billion, although right now it is unclear as to how Facebook plans on monetizing the service more efficiently.
