Facebook App Hits 800M Users

I wonder if this 800 million number is active users or everyone that has ever installed the app. Most people I know, myself included, hated the app and quickly uninstalled it.

Just how big can Facebook's Messenger app get? Try 800 million monthly active users and counting. The social-networking giant said Thursday its mobile messaging app crossed that mark near year's end. That means the app added 100 million new users worldwide since June. Messenger was the quickest growing app in the US in 2015 with a 31 percent increase in users year over year, according to Nielsen ratings.
