It’s quite amazing how Mark and his company, Facebook, the world’s largest social network whose aim is have a connected world have gotten more people to use their messaging app this year.
According to reports from Facebook’s Newsroom, the messaging app has now crossed 500 monthly users as opposed to about 200million that was recorded sometime in April this year.
This was announced through Facebook’s Director of Product Management, Peter and here is an excerpt from the post.
Messaging is an important part of how people stay connected and since Messenger launched in 2011 we’ve been passionate about giving people a faster and more expressive way to communicate.
Today more than 500 million people are using Messenger each month and we’re more committed than ever to make it the best possible messaging experience.
Remember we were all forced to download the messaging app in August after Facebook decided to make messaging have a standalone app. This definitely led to the increase in the monthly users of this app.
