Rise of social media for messaging

Mobile messaging was the most common activity performed on a smartphone in New Zealand. Aside from Facebook, Snapchat and Skype are also widely used by the online population. While Snapchat allows users to instantly share moments, Skype specializes in providing video chat and voice calls between users.

A cheaper, faster way to stay connected

As the population moved away from using simple cell phones, traditional calling and SMS messaging services became less appealing, with users opting to use the free services provided by mobile apps with minimal data usage.
