Move over Twitter

With the advent of internet gaming, the formally reclusive hobby has increasingly become more social. Now, games like Pokémon GO require players to get out and interact with fellow gamers as well as their surroundings. According to data released by SimilarWeb, the AR game is about to become more popular, in terms of daily users, than Twitter.

Keep in mind that this data only covers Android users. There is no doubt that the app will be similarly as popular on iOS. Twitter is not the only social app that needs to make room for little monsters. SimilarWeb also reports, ” As of July 8th, the app was being used for an average of 43 minutes, 23 seconds a day, higher than Whatsapp, Instagram, Snapchat, and Messenger.”

Therefore, this data is extremely promising to the future of AR gaming. Even in its infancy, Pokémon GO is a formidable contender in the world of social media and a strong indicator of more AR to come.
