10 million users for any platform is impressive. Really impressive, actually. Lucky for foursquare, which can now say it’s a part of this club. Reports from TechCrunch and MSNBC’s Technolog describe the social network’s announcement today that it has surpassed 10 million users across the globe.
Of course, this is exciting for all tech junkies and anyone who supports social media across the board.
But this announcement signifies just how wrong I’ve been about foursquare since its existence. I guess letting everyone know where you are at all times of every day has become more of a fad than I ever thought possible. Please note my sarcasm. Still trying to wrap my head around the safety, purpose and direction this service will take in the future. If it ever is made clear to me, maybe I’ll join. Just maybe.
Though I must admit, the stats given with the press release on the growth and history of foursquare are pretty cool. My favorite–since March 2009, foursquare has had 1,061 birth announcements, based on recorded check-ins at hospitals. It’s incredible when you really think about it.
