Quepasa.com Adds a Record 2.1 Million New Members in October
WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 4, 2010) - Quepasa Corporation (OTCBB: QPSA) reported that its membership base for Quepasa.com, the popular online social network for the Latino community, grew by more than 2.1 million in October, reaching 22.8 million total registered members.
These results demonstrate continued momentum in the growth of Quepasa's user base, following the addition of 2.0 million in September, 1.8 million in August and 1.4 million in July. Unique visits increased to 16.3 million in October from 16.0 million in September.
Quepasa.com continued to see particular growth momentum in its Brazilian user base, which accounted for 26% of its new users. This represents the largest source of new users, making Quepasa.com the fastest growing social network in Brazil on a percentage basis.
