Gaming social network Raptr says it's now brought in over six million registered users -- and closed a new $15 million financing round, bringing its funding to a total $27 million to date.

Raptr, which lets players track and share stats for games they play on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, says it continues to grow at a rate of 750,000 new users per day. The funding, led by DAG Ventures with contributions from Tenaya Capital and existing investor Accel Partners, will be used to add new features.

"Along with the user growth of our application, weiż˝re also now reaching over a million unique visitors a day on our website, and have expanded our presence into the mobile arena," notes CEO Dennis Fong, who founded the company in 2007.

Raptr connects with other social media services like Facebook, Twitter, AIM and Steam; for example, Raptr can post to Facebook about achievements players are earning in a game on any of the platforms Raptr supports.

The company also uses players' usage stats to share data with media parters like GameSpot, GamePro and 1UP so they can tailor their coverage to the games players are most actively playing.
