Buying Plixi was the best move Lockerz ever made

Lockerz.com, the small site for gathering points by completing things and getting rewards from them, until they bought Plixi. In this last month Lockerz.com views have spiked from 140,500 to nearly 2 million, that’s over 1000% growth in this month.

Meanwhile, Lockerz is slowly becoming rather popular in Twitter photo sharing as the photo sharing services of Twitter haven’t died yet because Twitter hasn’t distributed its photo services to every yet but did begin to roll them out to users recently.

Not only has Lockerz.com been growing like crazy this month its grown in the last year almost 500%, given most of that was from the last month its still notable that this site is becoming popular.

Now our other note, two other popular photo sharing services for Twitter Mobypicture and yFrog are also growing monthly and yearly, however, long time leader in the department, Twitpic is taking a beating. Its has grown the least in the last year and has actually shrunk in the last month.

Twitter left them out when they informed the 3rd party apps they had plans to launch a photo service which was rather interesting since they’re the biggest company in the department. We speculated they didn’t think Twitpic would be able to survive because they only offer sharing to Twitter while the other sites will share to Facebook etc.

What do you think Twitpic has next in the bag? They did launch videos recently.
