Leading Latino Social Network, Quepasa.com, Adds Record 2.32 Million Members in January

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - February 9, 2011) -   The membership base for Quepasa.com, the popular online social network and gaming platform for the Latino community operated by Quepasa Corporation (NYSE Amex: QPSA), increased by a record 2.32 million in January 2011 to total more than 29.5 million registered users. The site also generated a record 17.6 million unique visits in January, up from 16.4 million unique visits in December.

Quepasa.com continued to see strong growth in its Brazilian user base, which accounted for 26% of new users in January. This growth sustained Quepasa.com's leading position as the fastest growing social network in Brazil on a percentage basis, as well as remained Quepasa.com's largest source of new users. Mexico continued to be the second largest contributor at 14% of new users.

"In addition to the growth in membership, we also enjoyed increased user activity, recording more than 214 million page views in January, as compared to 184 million in December," said John C. Abbott, CEO of Quepasa. "We believe our recently announced agreement to acquire Brazil-based XtFt Games and their TechFront game development studio will allow us to further engage and monetize our Latino user base by providing more culturally relevant social games."
