WhatsApp met its users halfway; the text messaging app, that Facebook bought for $19 Billion, reported it has reached half a billion active users. This is half the number of the planned billion users Facebook wished to reach in unison with WhatsApp. This milestone number marks solid and steady growth for WhatsApp. With WhatsApp you can send free text messages to your contacts, so you are always connected with your friends and family wherever you are.
In its official blog, WhatsApp also stated that the app has gained its popularity mostly in Russia, India, Mexico, and Brazil, and its users share about 700 million images and 100 million videos on a daily basis. And the company doesn't seem to stop there. Jan Koum, WhatsApp's CEO, says, “...Here at WhatsApp, we’re just getting started.”
It seems it's clear enough why Facebook has spent a lot of money buying this app. When purchasing WhatsApp, Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, said that the partnership with WhatsApp would connect one billion users worldwide. The text messaging app had about 450 million users before the purchase, and now it has 500 million active users.
