Gmail - Swicthing back after the Buzz

Recent blog posting about the number of people joining and leaving Gmail based on a stats from a large provider of email forwarding and email change of address. Here are some stats to chew on:

  • July - 375 people join Gmail

  • August - 802

  • September - 2396

  • Gmail is stealing sharesfrom Hotmail and Yahoo twice as rapidly from Hotmail as from Yahoo -- and twice as rapidly from Yahoo as from AOL

In September this company recorded 2396 new Gmail users, but they also recorded 741 people leaving Gmail in the same month. The author believes that people are just trying to see what all of the buzz is about and making a quick switch back to their previous email provider.
