Awesome news, we just reached the amazing milestone of 50 million registered Nimbuzz users!

Since July 2010, Nimbuzz increased its registered userbase by more than 28 million, with 100,000 new users every day. This means that in less than a year the Nimbuzz community doubled its size ! :)

Next we are aiming to leverage and improve our existing mobile social graph and add an entertainment layer to our existing proposition. By doing this we want to offer a richer user experience to all Nimbuzz users with access to social games, virtual goods and local daily deals.

Our goal is to create a new experience for you so you can enjoy the best of both worlds. By doing this we hope to redefine the way users interact with their mobile social applications and pioneer a whole new app category :D .

You can see the latest Nimbuzz facts revealed in the infographic below but to quickly sum it up here are the most important numbers:

Looking for Nimbuzz friends? This update will help!

June 11th, 2011

We have upgraded our popular friend suggestions feature to be even more awesome and easy to use. This was a server side update so if you are using the latest Nimbuzz mobile version you already have it (no download needed) ;) .

As you already know the friend suggestions feature detects which of your phone contacts are already using Nimbuzz. The new update will automatically add them to your Nimbuzz contact list so you can call and chat with your friends for free instead of paying for operator minutes and SMS text messages.

We have also improved the phone number matching algorithm for better phone number(s) recognition in international and national format :) . This will increase the chances of finding new Nimbuzzers in your phonebook.

Any of the suggested contacts can be manually deleted if necessary and they won’t be suggested again (yes, in case you change your mind you can add them again manually :D ).

We hope you will enjoy this feature and as always we are glad to hear your feedback.

Yes!  ICQ is back on Nimbuzz .

Though last month we had to pull the plug on ICQ, it didn’t stop us from looking into ways of collaboration.

After further discussions ICQ agreed to let us continue to offer support.  This time we get to offer you an even better experience and access to the full ICQ API.  This is especially handy for Nokia Symbian and Blackberry users for which ICQ does not provide a mobile version.

We know for sure our friends from Russia and Germany will be really happy to have ICQ back again!

Thank you all for sticking with Nimbuzz even when we couldn’t offer ICQ and thanks for your support via blog posts, comments and Twitter.

Please tweet the post and spread the good news to all your friends :D !
