LINE messenger to set 300 mln user milestone by year-end

SEOUL, July 28 (Yonhap) -- LINE messenger, provided by South Korea's top portal operator NHN Corp., is expected to reach another milestone of 300 million download hits worldwide by the end of this year in a sign of its global expansion, industry sources said Sunday.

The free mobile messenger application broke the 200-million download mark worldwide last Tuesday, only four months after the service drew 150 million global users in April and seven months after attracting 100 million in January this year, according to NHN.

Given the pace of growth, analysts expect that it won't take long before LINE sets another milestone of 300 million users very soon, possibly by the end of 2014.
