GetGlue Check-In Social Network Hits 1 Million Users

GetGlue, an app for BlackBerry, iPhone, and Android that lets you check in to just about anything, just crossed the 1 million user milestone. To mark the occasion, they’ve released a bevvy of stats in a pretty interesting infographic format. The Oscars produced 31,000 check-ins, which is GetGlue’s peak of activity, but on a daily basis, they estimate 30 million Facebook friends and Twitter followers are reached by check-ins. During primtime TV, there are 10 check-ins every second. All of that creates something of 500,000 unique data points every day, which is no doubt juicy information for advertisers.

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, GetGlue is a social network for sharing the stuff that you’re into. When you’re watching a TV show, going out to a movie, reading a book, playing a video game, watching a sport, or indulging in just about any kind of entertainment, GetGlue lets you update your friends on Facebook and Twitter with your interest. As a social network in and of itself, you can earn stickers by showing your loyalty to particular shows, leave comments, and make friends.
