Since 2007 Graz University of Technology has undertaken questionnaires on its first-year students. The main goal of that annual survey basically concentrates on the IT- and Web-competences as long as they are related to e-learning. The long-term results display progresses and trends that need to be taken into account for a university´s e-learning strategy. The results of this year mainly state a tremendous triumph of the application WhatsApp. It´s influence on the usage of other applications and it´s relation to Facebook is specially focused. There is no evidence that using WhatsApp has a negative effect on Facebook. Quite the contrary; WhatsApp is another big push on the steady growing usage of modern media for learning purposes.
