25M People Using Dropbox Online Backup Service

Cliff Boodoosingh on April 19, 2011
There are now 200 million files being saved everyday by Dropbox users either on smartphone, computer or tablet. From a respectable four million users in 2010, the online backup firm has now reached a remarkable 25 million in subscribers, mostly of the free 2-gig variety, in just over 175 countries.

On April 18th, the company announced the immediate availability of the Dropbox service in Spanish, German, French and Japanese. In addition to viewing the website in their native language, the Dropbox desktop software (Windows, Mac and Linux), mobile apps (iPhone and Android) and sharing notifications will also display in the user's preferred language.

Moves like that have made the company a viral/word of mouth sensation. That's no overstatement either, the company spends no money on advertising. Giving away a free, additional 250 MB for each successful referral seems to be working wonders, but needless to say so is the product.
