SAN FRANCISCO -- In the competition between social networks and InstantMessaging Apps, the latest data - like that published by BI Intelligence leaves no doubt at all: over the last two years the number of registered ChatApp and Instant Messaging users has rocketed, mounting a serious challenge to social networking websites. This is the result of an exclusive survey on ChatApps conducted by ChatSim - the world's first Instant Messaging Mobile Operator.
It is being presented officially at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco (September 21-23, 2015), the world's most important competition in the field of technological innovation and the go-to event for the launch of revolutionary start-ups.
ChatSim was created as the world's first SIM card that lets you chat free of charge, anywhere and with no limits, even without Wi-Fi using Instant Messaging Apps: WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, WeChat and many other apps available for Smartphones and Tablets.
What's better than a survey on ChatApps by ChatSim, the SIM card designed specifically for chatting? The survey by ChatSim was conducted on 1000 interviewees in August 2015. The information considered the points of view of both men and women divided into age groups.
The data shows that ChatApp users are aged 25 to 50 years of age. Use is almost identical in the 25-35 and 35-50 age groups. WhatsApp is considered the best app by 2 out of 3 users. Looking at usage time, it is interesting to note that 30% of users use apps between 30 minutes and 1 hours a day.
And yet when asked: "If you could invent a ChatApp, what characteristics would it have?", the majority of users said that it should be able to include social networks in Instant Messaging Apps. About 30% of interviewees indicated this as the most important option.
