The App Which Changed The Face Of Texting: WhatsApp

The introduction of WhatsApp has changed the face of texting as we knew it before 2009. But I bet you don’t know half the cool stuff about this messaging App which makes it super cool. For example, did you know that WhatsApp recently got acquired by Facebook for $19 billion and this is the same Facebook that denied a job to WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum once? Well, I bet Facebook is regretting this decision now.

Also, as far as fun facts go, WhatsApp is just a company of 55 people and out of those only 32 are engineers. That means the ratio of developers to users is 1 to 23 million. That’s just WOW!

Let me give you another kicker, more than 1 million users get registered on WhatsApp every day. That amounts to about 695 new users every minute and as of April 2015, the messaging app has more than 800 million active users.

So, what makes WhatsApp such a loved app on the market? The reason is simple which is also the motto of the founders of the company. “No Ads! No Games! No Gimmicks! Just simplistic messaging services.”
