Viber now emerged as the widely used social media app. It ranked No. 3 as the Top Communication apps worldwide. I'm sure, just like me, you also have your own Viber account and you have your own Viber group comprised by your group of friends with same interests!
Viber even uplifted our communication technology! Because of Viber, we are now able to text and call for FREE provided that you have your internet connection or mobile data. It even replaced the 'old school' way of group text messaging or the 'send to all' mode of texting way back in college.
And to date, Viber now reached its 25 Million Filipino Users. And that turned into a hi-end celebration held at the Valkyrie, The Palace, Uptown BGC in Taguig City on the rainy night of July 21, 2016 opening its door to business in the country.
Viber, the Philippines’ leading communications app, celebrates its continuous growth in the country as it recently hit 25 million unique registered users nationwide. Viber has become a household name for Filipinos here and abroad when it comes to connecting with their friends and family.

“We truly appreciate the overwhelming and continued support from our Filipino users and we’re committed to making Viber even better through local content and partnerships that celebrate and empower Filipinos and be part of their daily lives,” said Crystal Gonzalez, Viber Regional Head for Southeast Asia.
Each month, Filipinos send over 44 million stickers through Viber messaging and group chats. Viber stickers have indeed become a new and fun way for Filipinos to communicate and express themselves. Based on Viber’s latest sticker data, users in the Philippines are fond of sending stickers about daily expressions such as “Xoxo” (kiss mark), “Good night”, “Good morning”, thumbs up, “I miss you”, “Thank you”, and sad face. Moreover, the most downloaded sticker packs in the Philippines—Violet, Freddie, Yango, LegCat, Noy Pi, Becky Vibe, and Vibe On—feature famous Viber characters as well as slang words that Filipinos use on a daily basis.
