@paulmwatson Good catch. That was my error. It's actually 145M instals. Fixed now, thanks.
@crucible I just happen to think that an attempt to put people on Mars is more thrilling and important than ephemeral photo-sharing among teens.

@bradotastic I've heard publishers say Comscore is often off by an order of magnitude. Figures come from Upworthy itself. Of course, you can read into that what you will.

@austinhallock Yes, you're right. Kik is still vulnerable to Apple's controls on its App Store. That's why I said "mostly." Being mobile Web focused doesn't put it entirely in the clear.

@DonGooding Thanks for your feedback and your comment. The point about the angels in Boston refers not to their number, but to the level of experience, and their willingness to invest that experience, time, and money back into the community. The point made to me was that Boston is lacking in "bench depth" on that front. Reading back over that paragraph, though, I see how I could have made that clearer.
