WhatsApp has announced its 250 million monthly active users, according to The Wall Street Journal.

whatsappWhatsApp launched 4 years ago and spends no money marketing itself.

"WhatsApp’s growth is of concern to many other companies. This includes telecom carriers that make huge profits billing for text messages as well as Facebook FB -2.49% whose traffic relies in part on users trading messages with one another", the The Wall Street Journal noted.
