DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that WhatsApp was founded by former Yahoo! employees Brian Acton and Jan Koum in 2009? After leaving Yahoo! in 2007, both of them traveled to South America to unwind and play frisbee. They even tried to apply for a job at Facebook but were not successfully hired. Koum then just relied on his $400,000 savings he got from Yahoo! for years. In 2009, Koum purchased an iPhone and thought of a potential app that could be downloaded from Apple App Store. He learned the code all by himself while doing the app. In addition, Koum has taped a note from his co-founder Brian that reads “No Ads! No Games! No Gimmicks!" so that they will only focus on creating a pure messaging experience.
Koum called it "WhatsApp" because it sounds like "what's up" or the phrase we use when we start a conversation with someone. On February 24, 2009, also his birthday, he incorporated WhatsApp Inc. in California. Meanwhile, in 2014, Facebook acquired WhatsApp for $19 billion. Back then, it was the Facebook's largest purchase acquisition. Some people even thought that Facebook's decision to buy WhatsApp is a bad idea, considering its high price. However, in 2017, Facebook CEO announced that WhatsApp already has over 1.5 billion users, and an average of 60 billion messages are being sent each day.
