The social networking websites have grown significantly in popularity over the last decade and have allowed people from across the globe to develop online social networks and communities. To date the majority of the social network websites are tethered to people’s computers. This means you need to use your computer with an Internet connection in order to access these sites. At least this was true up until very recently. While many of the social networking websites have their own customized pages which can be used on a cell-phone screen. MocoSpace is one of the social networking sites that are specifically designed to reach the customers that are on-the-go.
The websites such as MocoSpace have the potential to alter the way in which people interact as well as making things such as friend requests and status updates ubiquitous. Every person is away from their computer at some point during the day or night, regardless of the time they spend on updating and playing games on the different social-networking pages. When they do leave these pages, people generally have their cell-phones on their person all the time.
MocoSpace was first founded in the year 2006 by Justin Siegel and Jamie Hall. In 2007 and 2008 this company received 7 million dollars in funding and they reported on over 6 million registered users by March 2009. By the next May, this site was rated as a highly popular Web destination when it comes to mobile phone-users even topping MySpace.
Using MocoSpace is very similar to using most of the other social-networking sites. When joining the site, you are offered with your own personal profile page that you are able to modify with graphics and backgrounds. You can also use your own profile page to share your personal information and photographs. The profile page includes information such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, body type, relationship status, your name and age. If you are in search of a specific relationship type, you are able to include this information.
