Apparently, the instant messaging application WhatsApp has become a critical tool for anyone with access to a mobile phone.
So much so that it overcame Facebook as the app with the most active users in the world, according to the annual report "State of Mobile" made by the company App Anie.
Although the numbers are not detailed, the study reveals that WhatsApp is more popular than Facebook, a social network that manages more than 2,240 million registered users worldwide.
This may sound like bad news to Mark Zuckerberg, but in reality it is not, as it should be remembered, Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014 for $ 19 billion when it had only 450 million users.
Likewise, the report reveals that users around the world have dropped 194 billion applications over 2018, which has cost over $ 100 billion.
An important fact is that China, moreover, accounted for almost half of the total downloads of mobile applications from Apple or Android.
