Are you curious to know recent statistics regarding WhatsApp? Well, after the milestone of one billion monthly active users, it seems that WhatsApp is putting an end to text messages. A recent research by yourbudgetcover.co.uk shows that only in the UK the use of text messages (or SMS) has dropped by almost a third since 2011. At the end of September 2015 UK mobile users sent 102 billion text messages, while in 2011 they were 150 billion. Impressive, isn’t it?
And that’s just in the UK, but we are sure that in other countries the situation is pretty much the same, considering that now WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging app in the world. The situation is so serious that mobile phone operators are increasingly offering incredible deals to their users. Once again, we have to face the fact that WhatsApp is changing everything in the field of communication and it is now a real giant difficult to defeat.
