WhatsApp which was bought by Facebook 6 months ago has had an increase in the number of active monthly users by a whooping 150 million active Users. Koum was proud to share these figures in a Tweet.

You must know that active users are different from registered users. This makes the statistic quite relevant in Facebook’s conquest to extend its 1.23 billion user reach. However we may state that some users are registered on both platforms but they definitely use one a little more than the other.

This growth of active monthly users defies the odds and claims by privacy advocates for advocated for other apps like Telegram which I must say is slowly disappearing in terms of activity.
