SEATTLE, WA, August 8, 2013 - Placed, the leader in location analytics, today announced two key milestones as the Placed panel surpassed 100,000 active opt-in mobile panelists with nearly 100 million locations measured daily in June.

"Placed continues to differentiate ourselves by establishing new benchmarks in the location space through direct measurement and a best-in-class opt-in panel.
