    well we can’t be too sure as to whether the mxit team is really telling the truth cause from our recent research MXit is not as famous or big as the MXit says. What i’m simply saying is that we shouldn’t always belive what we here.
    Why would they lie?
    They are an honest company.

    And their figures are accurate.
    What recent research do you have? What is the truth then?

    When I was there in July 2006, they hit the 1 million user mark.
