This interview with DeNA founder/CEO Tomoko Namba told us a lot. DeNA is running a mobile gaming SNS platform called Mobage.
At the interview she said:
- DeNA’s revenue: $1.2B
- DeNA’s users: 20M
- Japanese companies have interest in acquiring companies out side of Japan
Instagram got a million users. But the important part is here:
It took Foursquare just over a year to get a million users. It took Twitter about two years. Instagram? They accomplished the feat in less than three months.
Sounds cool. I’m not an Instagram addict but the result told us that their social strategy works well.
