MyYearbook Hits Half A Million Daily Mobile Users, Launches iPad App
It's hard being a social network not called Facebook, but myYearbook isn't one of those erstwhile rivals being sold off for assets. Instead, it's been seeing strong mobile growth and revenue growth over the last year, building on its $100 million merger with QuePasa in July. Expect both to accelerate with the launch of its new iPad app today (available here). The company is now reaching half a million mobile users daily across major operating systems, chief executive Geoff Cook tells me, with 200 million (unduplicated) monthly sessions in total. Android has grown to be the largest, beating iPhone usage by two to one. The set of mobile app developer acquisitions that the company did earlier this year seems to be paying off.
