The message application, Line has made it to the 300 million registered user benchmark. It is indeed quite an achievement and it plans to go for the goal of a 500 million strong user base by next year.
Within the past four months, Line, the messaging app par excellence has brought on board some 100 million new customers. This makes it a concern that has well over 300 million registered users on a worldwide level. The firm let the facts be known at a press conference in Japan recently.
As an organization, Line began in the Land of Cherry Blossoms about two years back. It has been famous for the creation of a highly lovable bunch of sticker figures that are the darlings of the youthful crowd. Meanwhile, the growth statistics at Line are increasing so fast that they will make it a major global phenomenon soon. The CEO spoke of how he plans to take the number of users up to 500 million by 2014.
However, one things needs to be clarified. The net total consists of registered users and not just those who actively use the platform on a monthly basis. Line has some pretty tough competition coming from its opponents in the economic market. These are WhatsApp and WeChat and they have 350 million and 272 million monthly active users.
Line has a loyal base in the Spanish-sphere which includes Spain, Mexico as well as Latin America. And it is expanding to other markets too such as India and Europe.
