I hardly even use Near. Never bother checking.

I don't use it much either, but I have met some cool gamers in my area through it.

Even met some "non-gamers" through it. lol

Yeah same here I found some people even added them on my friends list.

As low as 25, as high as about 60. Usually, though, from 30-45 or so.

Apparently there are ~80 people with Vitas within a 5mi radius of my home. I suppose that's not that bad for a 'struggling' handheld considering I am in a relatively rural area of SE Louisiana...

Near is a really bad social network and doesn't work nearly as well as Nintendo's Streetpass

I've had 3 street passes since launch :( Got 32 people on near as we speak though. Street pass is too narrow. It relies on you both having your systems on with wifi enabled as you walk within each others vicinity. Nears 5 mile radius makes it far more accessible; have got several PSN friends through it too :)
The 3DS just doesn't do it for me anymore. I once blindly hated on the Vita, now however, I love it.

Also just realised that's 32 in a 1.5 km radius :P Honestly doesn't seem as unpopular as it's made out to be! I'm currently living in a pretty middle sized town for uni.

Really? I get like 20-30 people on SP every time I go out, and I have gotten maybe 5 on Near in the lifetime of my Vita. I guess it is just a regional thing.

Yeah, you can get some fun DLC and stuff for games on there for free.
