Social apps that are growing

I think doing this comparison of social apps is so much fun I'll keep doing it on a bi-monthly basis. The data is from Facebook, where "monthly users" is based on the number of connections to Facebook. 

The data is for nov 2011  --->  jan 2012  --->  mar 2012

News in the travel category: Tripadvisor is growing. Wanderfly included on my list after their re-launch. Everplaces just launched. 

News in the "other" category: Pinterest doubled in last two months! Instagram almost, as well. Gowall and Oink have been killed. 

News in the Swedish category: Spotify added 4,5 million users in 2 months. Soundcloud and Wrapp still growing strongly.

SXSW on Tripbirds

I'm using this awesome new service to see what my friends are doing at SXSW in Austin.

It's called...  Tripbirds. :)

About ten of my friends are in Austin at the moment, which gives me a very nice feed. The pieces of the Tripbirds puzzle are really beginning to come together!
