gfycat statistics

Here are the more interesting Gfycat statistics I was able to dig up recently. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.

gfycat statisticsPlease note that some of these Gfycat stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.

Gfycat (pronounced “jiffy-cat”) was founded in order to upgrade the GIF viewing experience to the 21st century. We all know GIFs are awesome (duh!) because they play everywhere, they are simple to view, they contain concise content, and they loop over and over and over again. Even with all that awesomeness, GIFs still suck. This is how we improve the GIF viewing experience. (source)
