He also added that WhatsApp carries more than 20 billion messages per day which is exceptionally double of Facebook’s daily messaging amount. It is interesting to see that WhatsApp is different from all the other Internet-based messaging services. WhatsApp has launched in 2009 and now it is making milestones day by day and competing the social media Giants like Facebook and Twitter.
He says unlike Facebook and Twitter, WhatsApp will not follow the Advertising and other campaigns in their services. Right now the app charges 99- cents for Android and other mobile platforms for their annual subscription.
According to Kuom, Smartphone are not the right place to put the advertisements and promotional activities. He added that we are full of ads everywhere in our daily lives and putting ads on Smartphone is not a good idea at all. We don’t want to interrupt by these ads while we chat with our loved one.
