WhatsApp New Record: 64 Billion Messages in One Day

The popularity of WhatsApp seems to be in continuous growth. The famous service actually managed to set a record of more than 64 billion messages in just one day. 

In fact, this is just one factor that proves the amazing popularity that WhatsApp has reached following its purchase by Facebook. The service confirmed the fact that they have reached the record of 64 billion messages in 24 hours. 

Actually, the new record managed to overpass with over 10 billion messages the previous record, which was established during the New Year’s Eve, of 54 billion. As expected, the great number of messages also caused a disruption in the service, which made users complain. They, in fact, took Twitter to complain about this situation.

Actually, analysts of the popular service claimed that the company is becoming more popular each day. Moreover, users have become even more interested in this service after it had been purchased by Facebook. Facebook purchased WhatsApp for an impressive sum of money, which actually reached $19 billion. The purchase was one of the most debated acquisitions in years. 

“If partnering with Facebook meant that we had to change our values, we wouldn’t have done it. Instead, we are forming a partnership that would allow us to continue operating independently and autonomously,” the CEO of WhatsApp said following the acquisition. He also added that the values of the company will not change, despite this move. Some debates have surrounded the privacy policy of the service, following this purchase. Some claimed that data of users of WhatsApp will be used by the popular social network for their own purposes. 

Currently, WhatsApp has about 45 million users, a number which grows each day. Statistics reveal that about one year ago, the message traffic on WhatsApp was around 27 billion a day. Probably the growing of users and the one of messages is making it harder for WhatsApp to stay away from potential issues. 

Well, the truth is that WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging services at the moment, a service that surely deserves this great popularity.
