MeetMe, a popular application and social network for meeting new people, announced that it set a new daily record yesterday for the number of user-to-user chats, crossing 20 million chat messages sent in a single day for the first time in the company’s history.
The company, formerly known as myYearbook, also recently launched a new design on iOS and Android, which it says makes it easier and faster to access messaging, with potential chat partners displayed immediately upon entering the app. Tabs replace “drawer”-style menus and help users easily and instantly switch between features as well as receive notifications.
“[MeetMe] doubled [its] number of chats … in six months”
“We doubled our number of chats from 10 million to 20 million in just six months. It took us nine years to reach 10 million chats and then only six months to reach 20 million,” said Geoff Cook, CEO of MeetMe. “We’ve never seen higher engagement on the MeetMe platform. I believe the new redesign of the MeetMe mobile app will help us drive growth even further. We released the redesign to a limited number of users earlier this month. Today it is available to all iPhone and Android users.”
The MeetMe app can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android. Are you sending one of those 20 million messages a day?
