Social Is Sticky: GetGlue Hits 1M Users

GetGlue, the leading TV check-in service (especially in terms of business development deals), announced today it has reached one million registered users. The company wouldn’t disclose how many active users it has, but it does say activity is way up: in the first quarter of 2011, GetGlue users checked in as many times as they did in all of 2010 (users check into TV shows they’re currently watching in order to share them with friends, earn stickers and chat). GetGlue users checked in 31,000 times around the Oscars, accounting for one-twelfth of all tweets mentioning “Oscars” during the first 30 minutes of the event.
