Nairaland needs just 266 new user accounts to hit 2 million members!
The 1 million members milestone was in 2013 (I.e it took 8 years starting from 2006). That means it took just 5 years this time.
Comparing that to most tech companies, it would seem slow but NL isn’t run like most tech companies- especially in terms of seeking and taking on investment and focusing heavily on growth (I haven’t heard of any fund raising effort).
The forum has grown consistently at what seems like the founder’s preferred pace and is a great source of entertainment to many.
