Massive boost in WhatsApp usage

WhatsApp has seen a significant increase in usage as the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic affects countries worldwide, according to research firm Kantar.

Kantar surveyed more than 25,000 consumers across 30 markets to determine how media habits changed when users were faced with the effects of a global pandemic.

Yep..
I was forced to download Whatsapp again for work purposes, since working from home.

WA has been a double-edged sword during Rona season so far.

Incredibly useful to share factual information at a moment's notice but at the same time the amount of fake crap is alarmingly high.

And of course the sharing of memes is a major pro.
