How do fb,whatsapp,quora,wikipedia earns? Xplained!

Hey guys, I am gonna show a weird experience.
I had a small chat with one of my friend on whatsapp.
He is a web designer cum security specialist.  I was asking about my blog and its perfomance, and some other doubts like 'How to make my posts available to real readers'
But the chat did turned out to something new and interesting for me. I hope you would like to know How the hell does this whatsapp,Wikipedia,Facebook and similar companies earn huge amount of money. 
For the sake of promise,i have removed my friend's original name,instead i have used a nice name from where we get weird answers :p
