Going on Facebook for the past few days makes me want to pull my hair out. It's full of discussions, videos, and pictures about Pokemon Go.
Nevertheless, I'd have to give Nintendo a +1 banana for this. Pokemon Go is really taking off.
I mean, check out these facts:
- Two days after it was released in the US, it was installed on more than 5% of all Android devices in the country (that's more than Tinder).
- It has nearly as many daily active users as Twitter.
- The app's average usage time is 43 minutes, higher than Instagram and Snapchat.
The success of Pokemon Go has led to a couple of interesting events, like these robbers who used the app to target victims, or like this Wyoming teen who discovered a dead body floating in a river while playing.
I've even heard about a guy who stopped his car in the middle of the highway to catch a Pikachu, causing a huge accident...
Any thoughts about the game?
