Not too long ago, WhatsApp decided to drop the $1 a year subscription fee. And since WhatsApp has promised to never show ads for the sake of their own users, it only leaves us wondering how the messaging platform is planning to make money.
Well, just around the time that WhatsApp dropped its subscriber fee, it had reported that it had over 900 million subscribers.
Thanks to making the messaging platform free to use, WhatsApp now has passed 1 billion users according to a post that WhatsApp made today.
WhatsApp now joins Facebook and more recently Gmail in the 1 billion+ club. Way to go WhatsApp!
I think Whatsapp is making money by selling our activities information
I think they intend to make money with something to do with businesses and extra features of some sort. But that was just a rumour I think.
seriously, how do they serve 1 billion people with all this continous bandwidth, personel and yet won't accept income ?
