BBM now hosts 80 million active users
Including the 60 million BlackBerry owners who actively engage in chats and video sharing using BBM, the latter now hosts 80 million active users. The BBM app was the number one app offered by the Google Play Store in 35 different countries, and was the number one app in the App Store covering 107 countries. Those interested in installing BBM on their iOS or Android device can download it and use it immediately without having to wait on the virtual line that was created onak
Using PIN numbers in lieu of phone numbers or email addresses, BBM members can chat one-on-one or in groups as large as 30. Future updates will add voice chat and video sharing to the service along with BBM channels, a new way to build community on the messaging app.

Millions of users with no active friends.. o many people posting their BBM pin on Social sites to get friends cause they don't really have friends and we're just fine with Whatsapp, Line,VIber,Snapchat and weChat i hope. :)

I'm happy for them and hope this turns iunto a smash success for them. Truth be told i'm not using it much since I already had Whatsapp but I do like BBM a bit more. Just add some extra little bits too it aside from the voice/video chats, namely landscape mode, smileys etc.

In South Africa BBM is the *ish, due to BIS, bcos data connection is very expensive so ppl end up buying BB devices to surf the net. And everyone in SA is like "Send me your BBM PIN" and ppl like me with an iPhone are like "Oh sorry, I don't use BB". Hence BB was voted the coolest brand by teens in SA because everyone is rockin a BB device. We call BB devices "Student Cards"

Except that phones like the Z10 and Q10 are not bought because of BIS. BBM is technically the best IM App, same level as Skype. Soon the BBM 4All will receive all the BBM features.

In Europe in many countries BB remains almost unknown!!! I don't even talk about BBM.
