Grindr Grows To Over One Million Members In 180 Countries

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Grindr, the world's largest all-male mobile location-based networking service, announces that it has reached yet another milestone as its member ranks swell to more than one million.

Since launching only eighteen months ago in March 2009, Grindr has become a global sensation.  Covered by major media outlets around the world including CNN.com, the New York Times , and the London Evening Standard, Grindr has users in every major U.S. city and in 180 countries across the globe including Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Macedonia, Rwanda, Bhutan, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Malawi, Samoa, Sri Lanka, and Yemen.  In the United States, Grindr has amassed nearly half a million users, with 48,000 of those in New York City alone.  Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom and Australia, more than 150,000 and 100,000 users respectively have joined the Grindr phenomenon.

On a daily basis, Grindr counts some 250,000 active users who log on approximately eight times per day and spend an average of 1.3 hours each day using the app.  On a weekly basis, the number of active users grows to 400,000 and on a monthly basis that number climbs to nearly 600,000.  Additionally, 3,000 new users continue to join the Grindr community every day.

"Crossing the one million member mark is an important milestone for us," says Joel Simkhai, founder and CEO of Grindr.  "This achievement is a credit to our extremely engaged user base whose positive word of mouth has been so critical to our success and also to our dedicated team who work hard daily to ensure that Grindr is meeting and exceeding our members' needs."

To commemorate this latest achievement, Grindr is launching a Million Man contest and hosting parties around the world.  The contest runs through Sept 28, 2010 and offers members the chance to enter and win one of three great prizes.  Million Man parties will be held around the world from September 28, 2010 through October 4, 2010, in many cities including Boston, Osaka, Singapore and Amsterdam.  Details regarding the contest and prizes can be found at www.grindr.com/millionman, and a complete list of party venues will be updated daily at www.grindr.com/celebrate.

"We're here because of our users," Simkhai says.  "This new contest and our worldwide celebrations are our way of saying 'thank you' to our members."
