1,000,000 Users ~ News Roundup
If you’ve been keeping up to date with recent HootSuite news, you’ll know that we recently exceeded one million users for our beloved dashboard.
In addition to the excitement of crossing the one million user mark, we had a winner for our impromptu Twitter contest — the correct guess for the date and time of the 1,000,000th sign-up. @kelkel926 predicted our millionth user would sign up at 11:24:15:42:21 and was awarded with a wi-fi iPad from us at HootSuite Headquarters. Congrats!

Among all the facts and figures presented in the infographic, HootSuite’s climb to this one million figure is the most interesting. HootSuite was founded in November 2008 and climbed slowly to 250,000 users in little over a year. From January 2010 to November 2010, though, interest in the service exploded. During these intervening months, HootSuite’s subscriber base almost quadrupled in size, a jump that reflects the growing interest in social networking.”
