Tinychat‘s super simple messaging service lives on the Web (and then some), but the fledgling company’s Facebook video chat application is clearly seeing some solid growth of its own.
The app is now the single most used video chat application on the Facebook Platform, with roughly 2.4 million monthly active users according to the application page.
That’s about 1.5 million more monthly users than its closest competitor, vChatter, which we’ve covered and likened to a “PG-rated version of Chatroulette” here.
The total base of users who’ve installed the Tinychat Facebook app has grown by a million in November alone, and judging from the chart above, the app’s growth rate appears to be consistent. About 75% of users resides in the United States.
It’s easy to see why it became so popular – the application is designed to spread virally among Facebook friends, as you can invite online contacts to join you in a live video chat in a snap, through Facebook Chat, without the need for your friend to have the application installed.
Eat your heart out, Chatroulette.
