Between posts and comments, WordPress.com is an enormous hub of activity. The service recently published its 2015 year in review and the numbers are staggering. Last year, users published 660M posts that generated more than 655M comments. The review looks back at posts that went viral, books published by authors, and coverage of world events.
Other noteworthy events include WordPress.com’s 10 year anniversary and the first conference devoted to WordPress.com called Press Publish, which took place in Portland, Oregon and Phoenix, Arizona. Late in the year, the service unveiled Calypso, a revamped backend interface for WordPress.com.
Suffice to say, it was a productive year for Automattic and WordPress.com with no signs of slowing down in 2016. Be sure to check out the full post to see a detailed list of milestones.
