FormspringFormspring.me, a social network where users can ask and reply to questions, now has over 25 million registered members, the company announced on its blog.

Over 3.4 billion total questions have been answered by Formspring users, the 18-month-old San Francisco-based startup told VentureBeat.

Formspring also released an infographic (embedded below) that illustrates some of the site’s more interesting statistics, like the 877 questions Marvel Comics Senior Vice President Tom Brevoort has responded to about X-Men.

The company faces competition from sites like Facebook and Tumblr that have added similar question/answer features to their services.

Founded in January 2010, Formspring has raised a total $14 million in funding from Redpoint Partners, Baseline Ventures  and Polaris Ventures. The company told VentureBeat it’s working on monetizing the site.
