Mumbai: Former soccer player Ronaldinho has joined Koo. His Koo handle is @ronaldinho. Ronaldinho joined the platform, and posted in Portuguese, English, and multiple Indian languages. Such behaviour as posting in multiple languages is unique to Koo.

Ronaldinho is only seen on global social platforms. Koo has joined the ranks of global social platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter in housing world-renowned personalities. He has millions of followers on other social platforms and happens to be one of the most talented football players of all time.

Launched in Brazil on 18 November, Koo claims to have since become the number one app in the Android and Apple stores. It introduced Portuguese as a language on 20 November. Since the launch of the Portuguese language, 500 eminent personalities from Brazil have joined the world’s second-largest microblogging platform. Every few minutes, eminent personalities continue to join the platform, including famous celebrities like Claudia Leitte, actor Babu Santana, author Rosana Hermann, and Choquei, a news portal, to name a few. Felipe Neto, a celebrity, surpassed 650K followers in just five days after joining the platform.

Since its launch in Brazil, Koo has registered 20 million likes, 40 million followers, four million Koos, three million votes on polls, and more than two million comments.

Koo co-founder & CEO Aprameya Radhakrishna said, "It’s the opportune time to have Ronaldinho on our platform. Our mission is to unite the world in spite of the language barriers. With FIFA being watched globally, Ronaldinho’s followers, who are spread across the world, will now be able to engage with him in the language of their choice using our unique features. Koo as a platform enables eminent personalities to communicate with their followers in their mother tongue using our unique features, including multilingual Kooing."

Koo co-founder Mayank Bidawatka said, "We are all huge Ronaldinho fans. It’s exciting to see one of the biggest soccer legends join Koo. It will be even more exciting to meet him when we visit Brazil. We recently launched in Brazil, and Koo has become a cult brand there overnight. The warmth and love with which Brazil has received us is humbling. Within hours of its launch, Koo attracted hundreds of celebrities and millions of users. Connecting people in their native language is a very powerful thing, and we are excited to march ahead to achieve our mission of uniting the world in spite of all language barriers."

Koo is available in 11 languages, including Portuguese, and has users from across the globe. Since the launch, Koo has granted 8,000+ yellow ticks of eminence and lakhs of green self-verification ticks to increase transparency and credibility on the platform. It is working to add more global languages and enable digital freedom in many more countries in the near future.
