Today, I can – proudly – tell the world: eBuddy has reached 250,000,000 user accounts!
It all started in a loft in 2004 with eBuddy Web Messenger as the only product. The past 7 years we introduced multiple mobile products, supporting today all mobile phones.
We have been on the front row of Instant Messaging aggregation for quite a while and witnessed some historical events.
Together with the huge success of the smartphone we saw a dramatic increase in the usage of our mobile products. Today over 33 million monthly users are using eBuddy Messenger; of which 2/3 use primarily a mobile device to connect to eBuddy.
We have travelled a long road to be able to announce this milestone. Many thanks to all those involved, but especially thanks to all you people that have embraced eBuddy as your Messenger of choice!
Off course we don’t let this milestone pass by unnoticed. Manoela from Sao Paulo, Brazil, is the 250th million user on eBuddy. She will be rewarded with a trip to the city were our headquarters is stationed: Amsterdam, the Netherlands!
Now, let’s get back to building messaging apps. Let’s go for the billion!
