WhatsApp achieves 1 billion daily active users mark

Mark Zuckerberg's got the next 5 years figured out and Facebook stock is cheap, Cramer says

To recall, in 2014 the messaging platform had around 450 million monthly users when it was acquired by the social media giant Facebook.

WhatsApp, the widely popular messaging app across the world, has achieved another super duper milestone. A year ago WhatsApp had one billion users per month.

WhatsApp Status, launched earlier this year, has managed to increase its user base to 250 million every day in just a span of six months, topping Snapchat which records 166 million daily active users on its entire app, including Stories, direct messages, and other features. That's despite it being relegated to a secondary dedicated tab in the app, opposed to being front and center on the home screen like Instagram Stories which also now has over 250 million users. These media files include photos, videos, etc.
