Dropbox announced that it has surpassed the 500 million user milestone. That's registered users.

Naturally, in celebration, the company released an infographic loaded with stats.

For example, Dropbox users have created 3.3 billion connections (by sharing with each other), which is up 51% for the last year. 44% of new accounts were opened when existing users introduced people to Dropbox.

"What they’re achieving never ceases to amaze us. Over 65% of the filmmakers at this year’s Sundance Film Festival told us that Dropbox is integral to their work. Mining industry manufacturer GIW Industries is using Dropbox to speed turnaround time for customers. And News Corp’s 25,000-plus employees have made Dropbox part of their increasingly cloud-centric workflows," the company says in a blog post.
