Social media management dashboard HootSuite has reached a milestone, by recently signing up its three millionth customer.

The social media tool launched in December 2008, and has grown at a rapid pace, especially in recent months. In fact, just six months ago (in July 2011) the company signed up its two millionth customer.

Additionally, the service has seen more than 700 million messages sent through social profiles. Currently, HootSuite supports social networks like Facebook, FourSquare, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ Pages, Wordpress and more, as well as has an App Directory that integrates with platforms like Constant Contact, Flickr and YouTube.

The service is used all over the world, with the top ranking country being the USA, followed by Japan, the UK, Canada and Brazil. And to further show that platform's global presence, the one millionth user came from Spain, the two millionth user is from Germany and the recent three millionth user is from Brazil.

The company blog claims that its next steps include, "Additional social media networks and App Directory integrations, new strategic partnerships, further mobile development, new courseware through HootSuite University and continued expansion of our Enterprise offering."
