In early 2018, the number of active users of the messenger has amounted to 158 million, which is slightly lower than in May 2017, when the maximum number of active users reached 160 million, but in any case, these figures exceed even the figures of one of the world's most popular social networks - Twitter, with its audience of 140 million people.
- Investment attractiveness. Since its inception in 2010, the company has attracted private investments, amounting, according to various sources, to about $10 billion.

In addition, a large-scale messenger redesign should take place in the second or third quarters of 2018, which will attract a large audience of new users, which in turn will encourage investors' optimism.
