BBM what? WhatsApp has over 250M monthly users

200 million that was implied for the platform just two months ago. At the time, Koum had said that WhatsApp had more users than Twitter, and Twitter had said that its active user base was around 200 million.Koum has come out and said that WhatsApp now boasts over 250 million active monthly users, which is up from the
At the time, Koum also said that WhatsApp was processing 18 billion messages per day, and that number peaked recently at 25 billion messages in one day. Those are all very impressive numbers, especially when you take into account WhatsApp has only been around for 4 years, although to be fair, the trend to move away from SMS has been a very recent one.
Bbm what? The title is a bit misleading, I thought whatsapp spokesmen jab bbm... just like Google+ competing facebook, no matter how awesome the Google+ is, people is on the comfort zone in the facebook pillows :)

But BBM still doesn't allow calls via cellular.

All in due time, In my opinion BBM performs similar to a social network while whatsapp is just a messaging application with a few features thrown in over time. It was created out of the necessity for a cross platform messaging service, out of all the current cross platform messaging services whatsapp is the best. If BBM goes cross platform my opinion of whatsapp as the best will change.

What's App is far superior with their last couple of updates. The problem with BBM is they waited WAY too long to join the fun in other platforms. If they had come out with it for Android or IOS years ago like everyone wanted to they would be untouchable. The problem is we're all creatures of habit. What's App works great and all my friends are already on it so why switch to BBM. I have the same issue with Hangouts. Even though I love the interface and works phenomenal, I generally only use it for video chats.
