Did you know that Facebook owns the hugely popular WhatsApp messaging platform in addition to Instagram? If you did, you might have been surprised to find out a few months back you’re actually in the minority.

Meanwhile, if you live in the US, you’ll be outright shocked to hear WhatsApp has recently surpassed the core app of its parent company in terms of global popularity. According to the latest annual “State of Mobile” report compiled by research firm App Annie (via VentureBeat), WhatsApp’s monthly active users topped Facebook’s same key metric for the first time ever in September 2018.

Since then, the infamous industry-leading social network was apparently incapable of regaining its dominant position on the world’s mobile devices, although the gap between WhatsApp and Facebook is currently unspecified.

Mark Zuckerberg used to love to flaunt the numbers and individual achievements of each social product under Facebook’s umbrella, but curiously enough, those statements have grown vaguer over the past couple of years.
