Pokemon Go celebrates while others remain distressed

Pokemon Go has been there in media for sometime. Firstly because of converting fantasy to reality while secondly due to claiming lives of some of its users. 

Still, it has gained a lot of popularity mainly because it gives real time experience of catching the Pokemons. 

Maybe, this is the reason why, it is being used twice as much as the Facebook app on Android while for iOS, it has broken the record of the most first-week downloads.
 
According to a report, , Pokemon Go users spent 75 minutes per day playing, versus only 35 minutes on the Facebook app. 
 
Facebook is not the only loser as the game has led to nine percent drop in the daily usage of YouTube and Snapchat’s usage dropped by 18 percent.
 
With such statistics, Pokemon Go is on the verge of becoming the king of all gaming apps.
