Social media dashboard HootSuite recently celebrated its four millionth user, and the company has launched a new infographic that reveals more about its data graph, including a couple of statistics that might surprise you.
More than one billion messages have now been sent using HootSuite, with the platform now popular throughout the world, although the bulk of its database remains the USA.
Overall, some nine million unique social profiles have been added to the dashboard, and even though most people think of HootSuite as a Twitter platform, almost half of all these profiles are Facebook.
We’re big fans of HootSuite at AllTwitter – Lauren and I both use the software extensively for all things Twitter, both professionally and with our personal accounts – and I’m very pleased to see the company announce a major milestone this morning: HootSuite has now reached two million account sign-ups.
More impressively, they’re doubled their userbase from one million to two million in just seven months.
