Social traffic platform talks up last year by the numbers.

Facebook has been rumoured to be planning a Waze takeover, which probably isn't a surprise, given that the social traffic platform grew from ten million users at the start of 2012 to finish the year with a community of more than 36m drivers.

Furthermore, users shared 90m reports with each other, and drove six billion miles via the app.

Waze, blogged: "We’ve grown faster and in more places than we ever could have imagined, and we’re constantly in awe of the amazing community of drivers we have and their commitment to fighting traffic, and together.

"Needless to say, it was a whirlwind year. We’re humbled by this community’s achievements and are so thankful we’ve all come this far. Huge thanks to our amazing map editing community for all their hard work and making Waze all that it is. Cheers!"
