Every so often RIM shares with us how BlackBerry Messenger is doing. At the BBM Hackathon at NYC Tyler Lessard, VP of BlackBerry Alliances & Developer Relations, share the latest numbers. They are pretty impressive and I think it is the first time RIM has shared how many BBM groups there are.
- 45 Million active users worldwide
- Over 5.2 million BBM groups created
- Growing by over 2 million new users monthly
- 70% use it daily to communicate with friends
- Billions of messages sent each day
- BBM is the largest mobile social network for BlackBerry users
