San Mateo, CA - WhosHere®, the world’s most popular app for location-based mobile social networking, available on Apple iOS, today announced its 5 millionth registered user.
According to published numbers, no similar location-based apps come close to matching the size of WhosHere's user base—which has now sent billions of free text messages via the app.
"Size is everything to a social network,” said Bryant Harris, Founder and CEO of WhosHere. “The more users an app gets, the more connections it can create, and the better the experience becomes for everyone.
“The location-based social networking space we created in 2008 is suddenly very hot, and we're seeing copycat apps trying – and failing – to replicate our success. But you cannot build a community like ours over night. We have grown organically over the past 4 years by creating a network that is truly user-driven.”
WhosHere works by leveraging location information on iOS devices, then connecting users with similar interests, in similar geographic areas, via free texts, free picture messages, and free VoIP calls -- without ever disclosing any personal information.
WhosHere is a location-based mobile social networking app: a cost-free, worry-free, label-free way to meet, text, even call the interesting people all around you, without ever giving out your phone number or email address. Founded in 2008, WhosHere helps over 5 million users make spontaneous connections on-the-go. For more, visit WhosHere.net or download WhosHere on the iTunes App Store.
