If you want to know why Facebook spent just one billion dollars shy of twenty Instagrams for WhatsApp, look no further than the instant messaging app’s number of users. WhatsApp today announced that it now has over half a billion active users. This means that 50,000,000 have signed up since the company’s acquisition two months ago and continue to use the app. That’s a ton of communication, much of it in parts of the world where Facebook’s footprint isn’t as large.
