The mobile messaging App, WhatsApp which was recently bought by Facebook has today announced that it has 500 million active users. This is a great rise considering WhatsApp had 100 active users in December last year. WhatsApp also revealed its users share more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos daily.

WhatsApp’s CEO Jan Koum also stated that the popular messaging app has been the fastest growing app in countries like Brazil, India, Mexico, and Russia during the last few months.

WhatsApp might have got criticized over privacy after the $19 billion purchase but the company still a wide smile because these digits beat competition by really wide margin.
