Mobile social network Foursquare keeps on releasing new stats on its growth, and why shouldn’t it? The numbers are nothing short of impressive.
Just 12 days ago, Foursquare grew by nearly 100,000 users in 10 days, taking its total number of users to somewhere north of 600,000. Now a new update from the company reveals that Foursquare has almost 725,000 users. That’s somewhere around 100,000 new users in two weeks. The Foursquare bandwagon hasn’t lost any steam.
Foursquare also revealed a second stat: there have been over 22 million check-ins by its users. While that’s not the same as Twitter’s 50 million tweets per day, it’s a damn impressive number for a company that is barely a year old. It’s also more difficult to check into specific locations (you have to change locations) than it is to tweet.
Foursquare’s been on the rise for a while, but it looks like South by Southwest (SXSW) has accelerated that growth to new levels. Our prediction that Foursquare would become the Twitter of 2010 may just come to fruition.
