Today, Mark Zukerberg’s Facebook revealed that its Facebook Messenger app has crossed the milestone of a billion users. In April this year, the organization had claimed that it has over 900 million users. It positively is a noteworthy rise in the fondness for this application.
Two years back, Facebook had separated the messaging feature from its key mobile application to promote the Messenger application.

Notably, the main Facebook application has over 1.5 billion users, and its Messenger, too, has crossed the 1 billion mark. A few time back, Facebook had also announced that its picture sharing social networking app Instagram has over 500 mn active users each month. What a proud moment for Mark!
