The first blow to Snapchat was kicked off on Instagram which has over 600 million monthly active users, compared with Snapchat’s 150 million daily users. Instagram launched its own Instagram Stories just eight months ago and has already hit that same 150 million daily-user level.
The direct connection with Instagram and Facebook helped Instagram to reach that feat in such a short time. This reduced Snapchat’s growth from 12% to 3%.

Snap Inc might have thought it might just stop at Instagram but Mark wasn’t still satisfied with the results, he decided to open up the floodgates.

The stories were added on Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp, which have billions of users. Also the stories are also coming to the main Facebook app as well. Snapchat still has a few perks Facebook hasn’t copied yet but may soon copy. If Snapchat doesn’t do anything, anytime soon is will become a place we all once knew.

But the question is this –

Is the 9mobile free whatsapp offer totally free?

Well the answer to that is No, it’s not. You would need to have another active data bundle before you can use the free whatsapp which means your data would be subtracted for every other thing you do apart from whatsapp usage.

If you are a 9mobile customer, you can simply subscribe using *200*3*1#

According to 9mobile, The WhatsApp offer is certainly a novel one as it allows their customers to put their data to other uses while they enjoy chatting and bonding with friends and loved ones on WhatsApp for free.

The offer also empowers customers to promote their businesses using WhatsApp as data which would have been used up on WhatsApp can now be used for other things with the free WhatsApp offer by 9mobile..
