Dropbox is growing rapidly and it looks like things are only going to accelerate from here on out. The company has announced that it has reached a new milestone of 300 million users, adding 100 million in the past six months.
The news was revealed in a cute way, by simply attaching a picture to a blog post dubbed “Thanks for helping us grow” that only includes one line indicating that there is a new notch on the wall.
The image shared by Dropbox represents a door with a kids’ drawing hanging on it with the brand’s box in the middle, as well as the word “cool,” a rainbow, a smiley face and an “@” sign.
On the wall near the doorframe, you can see the important milestones in Dropbox’s life – hitting 100 and 200 million users. The 200-million milestone was reached in November 2013, while the 100-million mark was reached in November 2012, which means that it managed to add the same number of users in half the time.
Dropbox has increased its efforts to become a tool that everyone needs. It made its business service available to all corporate users and introduced an easy way to switch to the personal account.
The company has also introduced Carousel, an app that provides a photo and video gallery that works on multiple platforms, which makes it easier for everyone who uses Dropbox primarily for photographs.
