According to Forrester Research, WhatsApp is adding more than a million registered users everyday. If WhatsApp continues to maintain the same growth rate, a number of WhatsApp users would easily cross 1 billion by the end of 2015. So, WhatsApp would become second to Facebook with more than a billion users.
In  India Facebook boasts of  "100 million active users in India as of Jan,2014 and 70% of them use the Mobile Media ...This out of a million Mobile base in India  , and nearly seven out of ten of them are mobile users. It's been a key driver of mobile internet access -- which accounts for 90 percent of the nearly 200 million internet users reported by the regulator, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), late last year.  

According to the Facebook annual report, in the fourth quarter of 2013, around  75 million monthly active users came to Facebook via their mobile devices.
