Online Social Networking Goes Mobile

This is a good overview of the various online social networks being ported to mobiles, which should do pretty well considering it’s an organized way of commercializing user-generated content…
“The opportunity in social networking is around media, and the mobile, [Internet-] connected camera phone is the perfect media device because it’s used to consume and produce media,” said Rabble chief executive Shawn Conahan.
Another interesting point was the tentative plan of MySpace to create “a device, possibly a phone, designed just for members that would let them send instant messages to each other, read mail, post bulletins, blog and photo-blog”. Co-founder Tom Anderson figures that with the size of his audience (26 million people and apparently growing by 3.3 million a month) it makes sense.
