Asked yesterday by an analyst about WhatsApp's revenue prospects compared to Messenger, Facebook's CFO, David Wehner, said the company isn't sharing detailed engagement figures by messaging platform, but noted differences in usage for each by region. Zuckerberg reiterated the dominance of Instagram Stories as well, with the popular photo sharing app also boasting more than 250 million daily Stories users. He also announced that 100 million people joined groups, and 2 billion messages were sent between people and businesses 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.
WhatsApp in their official blog post announced: "Just past year, we shared that one billion people around the world use WhatsApp every month". As you might have already guessed, these numbers are really great and these are only increasing as we write this. The company has now 1.3 billion monthly active users. More users of course supports Facebook's ad business, which received $9.16 billion in revenues, up 47 percent year-on-year. Even though Status faced some criticism from users, and WhatsApp was forced to bring back the original text-based Status feature, the new Status has over 250 million daily users now.
