Chat platform Hit 800million users, eye 1billion by year end

Industry watchers say there has been a steady rise in the progress of chat app-Whatsapp.


Reports show that In January, WhatsApp announced that it reached 700 million. The app, which is a Facebook owned company was bought last year for $22 billion.

When asked for his comment on the steady achievement of Whatsapp, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO said:  “What I’d say around messaging is we’re pretty early in that cycle. We are about where Facebook was in around 2006 or 2007, where, at that point, Facebook is really just a consumer product. There were no businesses in the ecosystem.”
