$FB - WhatsApp tops 500 million users

More on $FB and WhatsApp (messaging app) from today:

Messaging service WhatsApp, acquired earlier this year in a mammoth deal by Facebook, announced Tuesday it topped half a billion users worldwide.

In a brief statement posted on its official blog, WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum says the service's 500 million users share more than 700 million photos and 100 million videos each day.

Facebook has been both praised and ridiculed for spending $19B on WhatsApp.  But FB does have a growing WhatsApp user base to work with.  #thatsagoodthing
