WhatsApp celebrates its 12th anniversary with 2 billion users
The platform took the opportunity to share some of the numbers and metrics that make up its user ecosystem. These are numbers that make a difference and allow us to ascertain the real dimension and scale of its impact on the lives of those who use it.
Despite recent criticism of its sharing and processing of data with companies in the Facebook group, something that we are protected in Europe in light of the current GDPR, the platform is sure of itself and the signs are of growth.
The communications platform was born in February 2009
WhatsApp was founded in February 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, two former Yahoo employees. Initially it was conceived as a platform that allowed the exchange of information between users. However, it has evolved into an instant messaging and communications platform and the rest is history.
In 2014 WhatsApp was purchased by Facebook, in February of that same year. In the following year (2015), the platform added voice calls to its service. Video calls followed in 2016 and, in 2018, group calls arrived.
In 2021 WhatsApp processes over 100 billion messages and 1000 million calls a day. It has more than two billion active users.
