Social media platform and Facebook page builder, ShortStack, now serving 220 million fans.

The platform recently announced that it is currently serving 100,000 active users and more than 220 million fans and counting.

ShortStack, a self-service social media platform that allows users to create custom Facebook pages has reached several milestones, including a revenue growth of 750% in 2011. The platform recently announced that it is currently serving 100,000 active users, and more than 220 million fans and counting.

“We’re really humbled by our growth. It’s a sign that our users must think we are doing something right, as well as an incentive for us to continue to develop our platform at a rapid pace,” said Jim Belosic, CEO of ShortStack.

A bootstrapped company, ShortStack began as an internal tool for a web design business trying to meet the demands of its clients. Once released to the public in January 2011, the platform grew exponentially with clients ranging from individuals and small businesses, to agencies, corporations and celebrities.

Additional 2011 growth statistics for ShortStack:

  • Increased users from 660 to 100,000+
  • Expanded user base of the ShortStack platform to more than 184 countries.
  • Increased Facebook fans being served through tabs created using ShortStack from 55,000 to more than 200,000,000
  • More than 200,000 tabs were created on Facebook using the ShortStack platform.
  • Increased staff members by 80%

ShortStack is proving that a bootstrapped business can not only be successful, but can thrive in a world where venture capitalist and angel investors are becoming the go-to. Belosic’s business model is simple; keep the overhead low, don’t spend more than you’re bringing in, and provide exceptional customer service.

ShortStack plans to continue to provide the tools and resources for businesses to customize their Facebook page that help drive user interaction and increase fan page likes. The future of ShortStack looks bright with plans of expanding services to Mobile, as it quickly becomes the future of the web. The company also plans to offer more enterprise level features while maintaining a reasonable cost and make their tools “platform agnostic,” so they can be used across the web and not solely for Facebook.
