 Fewer people celebrated New Year’s Eve 2020 on crowded streets. Instead, they turned to technology and connected with friends virtually over voice and video calls. According to a post by the social media platform Facebook, WhatsApp calls saw an increase of more than 50% compared to the same day last year. “More than 1.4 billion voice and video calls were made on New Year’s Eve 2020 globally,” the post states. 

This is ‘the most ever calls in a single day on WhatsApp’ it added. “Before COVID-19, New Year’s Eve generated Facebook’s biggest spikes in messaging, photo uploads and social sharing at midnight across the world. However, in March 2020, the early days of the pandemic produced traffic spikes that would dwarf New Year’s Eve several times over — and it lasted for months. 

New Year’s Eve 2020 was the biggest day ever for Messenger group video calls (3+ people) in the US, with nearly 2X more group video calls on NYE compared to the average day.
