Mobile Apps Of The Decade
Mark Zuckerberg created social network with more users in the world ,more than 2,100 million -Facebook , which has also been the most downloaded of the decade. Its creator, in its beginnings, was affected by his company for allowing the violation of the privacy of 87 million people on his platform. “It was my mistake and I’m sorry,” he acknowledged a little late.Later he was a victim of the DeleteFacebook campaign , in which many users proposed to leave the social network.
Despite all this, the billionaire’s application remains the most successful in recent years. The four applications belonging to Zuckerberg are in the top 5 of the apps stores of the decade. The company only offers the data of the positions of each application, but not the absolute data of the number of downloads.
Facebook – The Social Network
Facebook plunged into the biggest crisis since its founding and in July 2018 fell historically to 20%, which meant a loss of 102,462 million euros in value. Investors reacted after the crash jointly denouncing the businessman for “having made false and misleading Facebook public claims.” Despite all the facts, the mobile application that manages the largest social network on the planet has been the most downloaded of the entire decade and continues to grow steadily. Users may see appropriate reforms initiated to improve privacy on Facebook.
Messenger of Facebook
Facebook Messenger is not the most hegemonic messaging platform, but in some countries like the United States it leaves behind any rival. For that reason, he ranks second on the podium. Users find in it a simple way of communicating and sometimes the best way to contact a person whose name is not known. Its growth is not expected to stop, but on the contrary.
WhatsApp – Messaging Application
Whatsapp is a messaging application displaced the SMS by facilitating the sending of photos, calls and video calls. The app was purchased by Facebook in October 2014 and since then Zuckerberg has adapted it to its discretion
Instagram is a social network that revolutionizes the market and the most used photo application in the world. It has its origin in iOS in 2010 and for Android in 2012. Taking a photo and uploading it on the internet is a simple method but little exploited in its beginnings, which has caused its market value to shoot up to more than 1000 million a day from today. Zuckerberg was right to fully extend the checkbook in April 2012.
To be honest, much of the merit of the spectacular growth of Instagram is due to Snapchat , the application of ephemeral photos that inaugurated this type of product that is still raging among the youngest. Snapchat’s initial approach was to allow its subscribers to publish photographs that could be seen by their followers for a period of time, after which they disappeared. Well, Instagram stories came as a crude copy of Snapchat that, despite everything, continues to resist the onslaught and maintains a large group of users.
