by Rob Lewis | Technology

2010 was a banner year for Vancouver's airG as its mobile social network grew to more than 55 million cumulative unique users worldwide, sending more than six billion instant messages on their mobile devices.

In 2010 airG’s users shared more than 2.3 billion photos, sent more than 74 million virtual gifts, had an average of 30 new friends they met in the community, generated more than 7.9 billion minutes of use, and spent more than 77 minutes each day using airG.

Through partnerships with more than 100 mobile operators in 40 countries and support for more than 30 languages, airG can lay claim to being the most widely available mobile social network in the world.

Impressive numbers.  And according to airG's Dejan Mirkovic they are on track to double the size of their mobile social network by 2012.

Interesting fact: airG was founded in 2000 and the following year they won the New Ventures BC Competition.
