Jan Koum No one wakes up excited to see more advertising, no one goes to sleep thinking about the ads they'll see tomorrow. loo Comparing total registered users and active users is like comparing Ferrari 250 GTO with a skateboard. We want to know as little about our users as possible. We don't know your name, your gender... We designed our system to be as anonymous as possible. We're not advertisement-driven so we don't need personal databases. We won't stop until every single person on the planet has an affordable and reliable way to communicate with their friends and loved ones. Brian Acton Dealing with ads is depressing. You don't make anyone's life better by making advertisements work better. We don't want to build a hookup app so you can find someone weird to talk to. It's not what we're about. We're about your intimate relationships. We're the most atypical Silicon Valley company you'll come across. We were founded by thirtysomethings; we focused on business sustainability and revenue rather than getting big fast, we've been incognito almost all the time, we're mobile first, and we're global first. "Engineers make up 84% of our company-so if you like writing code and hate office politics, talk to us."
