True to its name, the biggest professional networking application on Facebook is branching out: BranchOuthas more than doubled its Facebook userbase over just two months, now surpassing 25 million users.
At least three new people sign up for BranchOut every second, on average. Roughly half the new signups come from people outside the U.S., primarily Europe, Australia, Canada and India.
And since BranchOut added mobile functionality in late February, some 40 percent of new signups come from handheld devices.
The company recently closed $25 million in Series C financing led by the Mayfield Fund. Previous investors Accel, Norwest Venture Partners and Redpoint Ventures also participated in the round, bringing BranchOut‘s total funding to $49 million.
The latest funding will allow BranchOut to expand its San Francisco-based team of 45 people.
