The number of registered users on Facebook messenger passes the 700 million mark


It’s no doubt that Facebook is the popular social networking platform out there. The platform has seen tremendous growth over the years. Still on Facebook, its messenger platform seems to be growing very fast. Just last week, I told you that the number of downloads Facebook messenger has seen from the play store alone passed the 1 billion mark.

Facebook’s CEO was quoted last week saying that Messenger has 700 million registered users. Keep in mind these are registered users and not active users. This makes a lot of sense as you do not expect everyone who downloads the app to use it frequently.

Getting to the 700 million mark is quite a significant growth for the app given that it just had about 600 million registered users back in march this year. To grow by 100 million in just a couple of months is amazing if you ask me. Facebook hopes to grow this number even  more in the future.
