Stuck @ 30 million!

The year ends with a Skype disappointment for me, but let's remind first about some numbers and facts all provided by Skype itself, mostly in October:
  • Skype is now Microsoft
  • Integration of Skype & FaceBook
  • 300 million minutes of video calls per day
  • 700 million minutes of free calls per day
  • 65 million people sign in every day
The last number is interesting, because this gives an idea about how many real Skype users there are in the world.

But, there is also « bad » news : for the first time ever since 2004 Skype didn't cross a « million milestone » of users online in the period September to December. In May Skype crossed the 30 million simultaneous people online, and it got stuck around that number ! I don't understand why ...
