Lithium Technologies by the Numbers

Lithium Alumni (Retired)


Lithium is making a number of significant product announcements at this year’s LiNC Conference that form the cornerstone of our new Total Community strategy and address the customer experience across digital channels.



But beyond just looking forward and talking about the exciting direction we are headed in, we want to take this opportunity to look back and acknowledge how far we have come over the last few years building out our lineup of great customers across the globe, the ever-expanding use of our products, and – last but not least –

the evolution of our annual LiNC Conference since it kicked off in 2008.


Our continued growth is a testament to the fantastic work our community managers and social champions are doing, as they drive more and more of their customers to engage with each other on their own communities. In fact, with our more than 100 million monthly users, we’d out-populate Germany by 20 million, and the UK/France by 35 million each. And just as we empower brands to bring their customers into the fold, Lithium has built a robust community of enthusiastic advocates we continually turn to for input on everything from new product features to what they want to see at future LiNC conferences.


Following are statistics on Lithium’s growth on the customer, product and LiNC front over the years (also available as an infographic here).


If you can’t already tell, we’re immensely proud of these.

  • Global customer growth – 300%
