Kalinga TV News Network
New Delhi: Instant messaging application ‘WhatsApp’, which gained immense popularity in realms of instant messaging and communication, will now enable users to earn money online. As per latest information, WhatsApp is all set to provide employment opportunities to users in 2019. A Wall Street journal has recently revealed that this facility will be available from early next year.
A new feature will have advertisements displayed in between WhatsApp status, which would enable users to earn money from the comforts of their homes. This will directly help businesses in selling targeted ads to WhatsApp users via the Status feature. Prior to this, the Facebook-owned pictorial app Instagram had also initiated the practise of putting advertisements in between Instagram status stories to generate revenue.
At present, WhatsApp has 1.5 billion users worldwide, out of which 45 crore users regularly put up status updates. Similarly, Instagram is used by 40 crore users who put up millions of insta stories per day. Mitt Edima, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook has stated that the advertisements appearing on WhatsApp will be entirely managed, controlled and administered by Facebook.
Global Analysts are of the opinion that WhatsApp is being turned into a revenue-generating property in order to reverse the declining revenue growth of Facebook whose stocks rates have been declining steadily.
