An incredible figure, announced yesterday by Mark Zuckerberg. The messaging app is used by 2 billion people, who would send an average of 50 messages per day.
Owner Mark Zuckerberg recited the data: Every day 100 billion messages are sent on WhatsApp. It was presumably that the most used messaging app in the world could generate dizzying numbers, just think about how many messages you write every day for pleasure, work, in private conversations or group chats, but the figure is still impressive and makes it clear how many people all over the world (or almost) are addicted to it.
100 billion messages a day on WhatApp
One number is particularly interesting and gives the measure of how the application works. grow day by day. WhatsApp’s record made on New Year’s Day 2020, 100 billion messages sent, is in fact history. In fact, those figures are now reached on average every 24 hours. It is also possible to make an estimate, certainly rough: in the world there are 2 billion people who use the application to keep in touch with friends, family and co-workers. Since on average WhatsApp sends at least 100 billion messages every day, this means that each person, within 24 hours, sends about 50 posts. Summing up the app numbers:
- 2 billion users
- 100 billion messages every day
- 50 multimedia messages sent by each person
The logs recorded by the messaging application were also confirmed by the director of WhatsApp, Will Cathcart with a tweet:
This year, we’ve all relied on messaging more than ever to keep up with our loved ones and do business. We are proud that @WhatsApp is capable of delivering approximately 100 billion messages every day and we are excited about the road ahead.
