With all the commotion surrounding messaging apps in the United States, we sometime over look the fact that some of the biggest messaging apps in the world are not only based in other countries, but some have hundreds of millions of users and don't focus on the U.S. at all. This is the case of Momo, a gigantic Chinese messaging app with a twist. Momo uses the location of the user to help find other users to chat with. The thought is that it connects users with similar interests who are close-by and would normally never meet.

Momo has been popping up quite a bit in my feeds lately, so I decided to take a look at just how poplar their service is. Here are a few of the more interesting Momo statistics I was able to dig up. As always, I will be updating this post semi-regularly, so be sure to come back again in the future.
