How many WhatsApp users are active each day and how many messages do they send? We have selected the most important numbers for you about the most popular messenger.
Last week, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg presented the new quarterly figures. In the second quarter of 2017, his social network made nearly four billion US dollars (3.89 billion) in profit and sales of 9.32 billion US dollars.
As a result, Facebook earned more profits in a quarter than Google.
But Mark Zuckerberg didn’t just give insights into the financial development of his company empire. In a Facebook post, he also released new usage and interaction numbers for Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp.
One of the biggest surprises is that WhatsApp Status is now used by 250 million users every day. In June, there were only 175 million daily users.
It seems almost as if WhatsApp Status, after its catastrophic start – WhatsApp users had no understanding of the new Snapchat clone – now has a remarkable fan base built up.
Of course, comparison with the story formats of Instagram and Snapchat is only possible if there are detailed usage figures. Nevertheless, the growth of WhatsApp Status has been considerable.
One billion daily WhatsApp users
But the Facebook subsidiary WhatsApp doesn’t just shine in terms of numbers for the new Status. There is also a lot to celebrate with the green messenger.
In a blog post, WhatsApp now reported that Whatsapp messenger now counts one billion daily users. This means that one billion people are active on the app at least once a day, for example by reading or sending messages.
In a month, it is even 1.3 billion people. This corresponds to more than 17 percent of the world’s population.
How important WhatsApp is for the daily communication of its users are shown by these figures:
- 55 billion messages are sent every day.
- In addition, 4.5 billion photos are shared with friends and acquaintances via WhatsApp
- One billion videos are added daily.
In the meantime, WhatsApp supports more than 60 languages and has become a central, global exchange platform only eight years after its founding.
