Hypothesis: 7 Million Annotations and Counting

This week we’re celebrating another major milestone: Our 270,000+ registered Hypothesis users have now created over 7 million total annotations. Teachers and students are still leading this annotation activity — many now using our latest LMS integration is and participating in supported pilots — but journalists, publishers, and researchers also continue to spread collaborative annotation as a basic practice on the web.

We’re recording more than 1M annotations each quarter and seeing usage accelerate significantly. With the start of a new academic term this fall, we’re seeing more than 200% usage over the same time last year, with annotations roughly doubling every year: 1M in 2016, 2M in 2017, 4M in 2018, and 8M or more in 2019. We expect this exponential growth to continue and even increase as more organizations integrate Hypothesis into their systems and practices.
