If Facebook bought WhatsApp it was for a reason. Mark Zuckerberg knows exactly what he does when he buys companies like Snapchat or Instagram, because he not only takes advantage of these multimillion-dollar investments, but also improve your social network and its services by taking ideas from your new acquisitions. These improvements lead more and more people to bet on Facebook, but what has surprised us the most is the number of users who use Facebook Messenger: 800 million users and already approaching those of WhatsApp
Facebook has integrated into practically everything that common sense can ask of a social network. It has even been the platform chosen by some series to premiere for free, so we can get an idea of the impact it has globally. However, today we are going to focus on Facebook Messenger, Zuckerberg's messaging client and that could crush WhatsApp very soon
Facebook Messenger is dangerously close to WhatsApp
Nobody talks about WhatsApp disappearing, or that the blue social giant will eliminate the popular application, but the truth is that Facebook Messenger doesn't have much to envyIt is true that Zuckerberg's messaging client is aimed at linking with a social profile and WhatsApp is not, but precisely for this reason many people opt for this app as an option over WhatsApp.
According to what we have learned first-hand from David Marcus, Facebook's vice president of messaging products, the number of users using Facebook Messenger is approaching that of WhatsApp. We are talking about a whopping 800 million users, compared to WhatsApp's 900 million, a number that is by no means negligible.
It is clear that the progress of this type of messaging applications could lead to definitely extinguishing conventional telephony WhatsApp calls or the VoIP offered by many social platforms will be the future, or at least everything points to it.
Facebook will have a lot to say on this issue and I'm sure that, thanks to all of Zuckerberg's investments, we will see in the coming years how networks invade all aspects of our society, approaching people regardless of their race or geographical location.
And what messaging client do you use? Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp?
