The private social network app has seen a recent surge in user numbers and is now rumored to be seeking new funding that would grant it entry into the $1 billion valuation club (see: Airbnb, Tumblr, and the recently rumored SnapChat.)
The photo-led social network founded by ex-Facebooker Dave Morin has run into trouble after a user discovered the program had robo-called and texted his parents, grandparents, and even his plumber. The firm has called the debacle a user-error and denied any data-collection shenanigans.
The social diary app cofounded by former Facebooker Dave Morin took three years to reach 6 million users. Now, Morin says Path is adding a million users a week, less than two months after the debut of a new version of the app that includes private messaging and premium packs of virtual stickers.
