Heello now at 1 million Pings

As we recently reported Heello had hit 500,000 Pings in less than 48 hours, now it has 1,000,000.

The site seems to be growing day by day and adding more Pings day by day as well we aren’t exactly sure how many a second/minute it is averaging but we would gess around 10 a second and 60 a minute.

This time the milestone Ping wasn’t deleted and was posted by @andinimiftaa saying: “Gue dilahirkan untuk jadi diri gue sendiri bukan jadi orang lain !” for those wondering that is Indonesian and says “I was born to be myself rather than be someone else!” if you translate it to English.

The site announced the milestone via, of course, Ping on its official Heello account says “We hit 1 million pings in 2 days!” which is an impressive stat.

The site is also closing in or may have already hit 100,000 members so hey, maybe it will give Twitter a run for its money. We will see.


Youtube joins Shoutitout after Shoutitout announces video milestone

Youtube has just joined Shoutitout under the nickname @youtube, this coming just hours after Shoutitout had announced that over 5 years of playing time in video had been Shouted.

For those who don’t know Shoutitout only allows you to Shout videos that are posted on other sites, they only allow 3 other sites Youtube, Vimeo and Metacafe.

Shoutitout has also partnered with Vimeo to allow you to upload videos to Vimeo without leaving Shoutitout. They tried to do the same thing with Youtube and Metacafe but the sites couldn’t come to a agreement so they went ahead with just Vimeo.

Well, today Shoutitout announced this milestone of 5 years of video playing time, it was also rumored that Vimeo was catching up in playing time and amount of videos posted, so Youtube decided to take matters into their own hands by creating a Shoutitout account.

Shoutitout has several popular Youtubers on it so Vimeo could perhaps pull them in somehow but Youtube wanted none of that so they made a Shoutitout account, say our sources.

The account hasn’t gotten much attention yet but has only Shouted once and has picked up a badge, plus it is friends with 2 of Shoutitout’s top 5 users already so that is a solid start.

As for Shoutitout stats we have a little more than what they announced. First of all around 3 years of the video are from Youtube, around 1 and say, 9 months is from Vimeo and around 3 months is from Metacafe. There are around 11,000 Youtube videos posted on Shoutitout, around 9,000 Vimeo videos and around 1,ooo Metacafe. Vimeo used to be around 10,000 behind Youtube but has really cut into that since the partnership.

We are also starting to wonder, maybe Youtube will start talking with Shoutitout about the terms of that partnership again to stop Vimeo from getting any more ground on them threw Shoutitout. Anyway this is a pretty high profile signup for Shoutitout.

Heello averages 4 Pings a second on first day

New startup Heello has started a little faster than other startups of similar design and features. The site had an average of 4 Pings a second on its first day, granted this isn’t near what Twitter gets and really Shoutitout gets more than this to, but it is a solid start and is a much better start than either of those two sites got.

The site is closing in on 200,000 Pings and after one day of being on the web that is pretty nice of a number. For those wondering, the site is hosted by Amazon but on a special server, not in the regular cloud like allot of other hot startups. This fixes the issue of it going down with the rest of the internet when the Amazon Cloud goes down like it did recently.

As far as we can tell Hello has more than 25,000 members to date and it probably has around 30 or 40 thousand. We don’t know how many photos have been posted but are trying to find a source who may have information on the matter. It is always hard to find out this kind of information on startups so it could be awhile before we have that kind of thing about Heello.

One thing is for sure, it has given itself a nice little start, lets see where it goes from here.

The fake account problem on Heello

Heello has gotten an interesting response as a knock off of Twitter, but it has also been filled with fake accounts. Most sites get a few Justin Biebers or Lady Gagas but Heello is getting fakes like crazy.

The site is working on a way to pull the fakes out of the userbase but for now the site will be filled with fake accounts. These accounts include: @cnet, @googleplus, @yahoo, @twitter, @youtube, @shoutitout, @ev, @wikileaks, @martzuckerberg and many others.

The site has also gotten its full collection of Justin Biebers the most notable being @justinbieb who is also a fake.

For now if a “company” joins Heello don’t trust anything posted on the account in till the company confirms that the account is theirs. All the accounts we listed above have confirmed with us that they made no account on Heello.

Some stats for Heello really quickly. The site has a little more than 16,500 Pings and around 5,000 users. We can’t get the exact stat for the users that is just the amount of listeners the official @Heello account has, that account isn’t a fake by the way.

Proof the listed accounts are fake just by the Pings they have posted:

Shoutitout grows almost 20% in one day

Shoutitout had a pretty good day yesterday. More than pretty good, more like an amazing day.

The site grew almost 20% in just one 24 hour period soaring up nearly 100 members which is something that hasn’t happened on the site, ever.

Shoutitout expects to have several more days, not this size, but pretty big in the next few days as well which should grow them past 700 members before the school year gets started (which is what they are aiming for.)

Shoutitout announced this via a Shout by @admin saying this exactly:

You could say we had a good day yesterday

The Shout is yet to get any comments or likes, most likely because it is currently 1am on the east cost which is where allot of Shoutitout’s userbase is, but it will slowly gather attention for sure.

The site seems pretty excited about the sudden extreme growth, but really it isn’t to sudden since the site has had several large days recently and also several amazing days with the amount of Shouts then the site really should be expecting this.

This is also why the site recently moved to the Amazon cloud, in fact they might be the site using the cloud the best since it didn’t crash along with Instagram, Foursquare and others last night.

Google+ traffic begins to fall

Google+ may be on the road to the fate of Google Buzz, Wave, and other failed social networking attempts. NOTE: They are far from this but a start has come.

According to a recent report Google+’s time spent on site and views have cut down dramatically. The time on site dropped about 10% from 5 minutes and 50 seconds to 5 minutes and 15 seconds, the amount of visitors declined in the US for the week by about 3% to 1.79 million.

It is important to note that Google Plus just hit 20 million users, launched an iPhone app, and a bunch of other news. It is also far from dying off but this has always been the Google way, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Google Plus became the next Google social fail project.

Women’s world cup final breaks tweets per second record

Soccer seems to be loved on the internet, first of all last years means world cup broke Twitter records, now the women’s world cup final has broken the overall record for most tweets per second.

The record was with 7,196 tweets per second. Even president Obama was involved in the mass amounts of tweeting. This is a dominating stat because previously the record was in the 5,000 when the death of Osama Ben Laden was announced.

Just to compare it, this is twice as many as the top tweet per second during the super bowl and twice as many as the most tweets per second last year during the women’s world cup, please note that Twitter has grown since these events however.

An infograph celebrating 200 millions tweeters

Yup, Twitter has hit 200 million users, amazing isn’t it, a day after its birthday with all the tweets that come in daily. This infograph shows how Twitter has grown over the last 5 years, and a day.

Harry Potter is winning the battle on Facebook and Twitter but not Shoutitout

Harry Potter is currently dominating conversation on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus etc etc… but one site has stated that its actually not the most popular movie on the site so far that site would be Shoutitout.

A Shout from owner of Shoutitout @willy says that Horrible Bosses has actually been mentioned more than Harry Potter in the last few days.

We emailed Shoutitout on the subject and its a very close race, they both have lots of mentions but Horrible Bosses has been leading the overall mentions the whole way threw.

Since then Harry Potter only has had more mentions in an hour once, and that was at around midnight pacific time when people on the east were Shouting that they really enjoyed it, and people on the west said that they were going to go see it.

So it seems like Harry Potter isn’t dominating every single social media outlet. Twitter and Facebook have also gotten allot of mentions about the Horrible Bosses movie as well just not has many has Harry Potter.

1 billion thing shared a day is nice Google+… Twitter does 35 billion

The stat that Larry Page threw at us yesterday that seemed to surprise allot was that Google Plus’s 10 million users were already sharing 1 billion things a day. At first we thought this was amazing but then we noticed that we don’t now what “things” means so we can’t be sure how big that is exactly.

Then today Twitter basically just slapped Google Plus across the face with a Twitter from Twitter engendering, and after 5 years exactly (happy 5th Twitter!) Twitter has announced its users share 350 billion things a day.

Then both companies defined “share” which means that the service delivers a update to a certain user, so some tweets end up being “shared” millions of times, same as Google Plus users.

The weird thing is that the big social network called Facebook, yeah it only shares 5 billion things a day. Why is that number so low? We aren’t exactly sure.
