Launched two months ago, ChatGPT, a chatbot that can answer questions and even write poetry, is estimated to have surpassed 100 million monthly active users – a quicker uptake than even TikTok.
ChatGPT is estimated to have reached 100 million monthly active users in January, just two months after launching – the fastest-growing consumer application in history.
A report by UBS says an average of 13 million unique visitors had used ChatGPT daily in January, double the December levels.
It took TikTok about nine months to reach 100 million users and Instagram 2-1/2 years.
ChatGPT, which can generate articles, essays, jokes, and even poetry in response to user inputs, is owned by OpenAI, a private company backed by Microsoft.
The availability of such a tool has raised concerns about its use for academic dishonesty and misinformation.
