Before alarm clocks and Smartphones, people used candles and water to get out of bed. And then the first mechanical alarm clock was introduced by an American Levi Hutchins in 1787. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, has become the inventor of next generation alarm clock after Hutchins.
With three major acquisitions (Instagram, Whatsapp & Oculus VR) after the Initial Public Offering in May 2012, Facebook has become the primary alarm for Gen X, Y and Z through Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram notifications.
In its recently concluded quarter, Facebook said that WhatsApp has crossed 1.5 billion monthly active users with over 60 billion messages exchanging everyday.
