Path Gains Ground Among U.S. Users

Path may finally be taking off in the United States, according to a Wall Street Journal interview with CEO Dave Morin.

It’s now in the top 20 most-downloaded apps in the App Store, and it’s adding a million registered users a week, Morin said.

The mobile-only social network, which claims to offer a more intimate experience than Facebook, has drawn most of its users from Asia.

But since it launched version 3.0 in March, Path has been gaining ground in the United States, Morin told the Journal. The network has seen spikes in western U.S. cities, including Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, and in New York.

The update introduced messaging, as well as stickers, geared at the core Asian audience.
