TechCrunch: mobile social application to create a new pattern of social networks

On Thursday, all day I used Yobongo. It helped me find a new place for lunch, ran into an old friend, also met Yobongo co-founder. That afternoon, I still think it is time to Techcrunch to write news articles about the new battle of the mass. A few hours later, Color Labs appearances. Friday night, I was editing this article, when, Google clients Disco mass of information there. Coupled with SXSW and NCAA basketball, which is really "crazy in March."

The outbreak of mobile social applications mean? We are witnessing a new type of company. Which initially is to provide mobile phones and tablet PCs (not PC or notebook computer) experience and established. They use basic social activities and use of smartphone features, to provide consumers with cool features, in exchange for building more intimate networking opportunities. Last year, Facebook and Foursqure the main force that has released a new mobile feature that allows users to sign in and share the photos of that location. Perhaps the message on the general situation will be clearer to the development of communication, this approach can be combined with mobile devices can use bits of information access.

This new trend just beginning to form from last year.

The first wave of applications for mobile devices take advantage of the camera, resulting in a Instagram, PicPlz, Path sharing and other applications and with pictures form the basic social services of different types of networks. Location Service under the same use of the GPS sensor. Video sharing is more difficult, although uStream and SocialCam show a little hope. Soundcloud allows users to record and share the voice of everyday life. IntoNow and Shazam is similar to television and film to identify (and perhaps advertising) in the audio waveform, like the film and television through the user link. Bump Technologies for shared services and Apple takes advantage of the accelerometer, you can phone into a game controller.

At the same time, other companies began to create mobile messaging applications, some of them aimed at the social field. These new tools create more intimate communication platform, as many users Facebook lost their sense of the endless sea. As Dave McClure said, Facebook can not "make people become intimate relationship." Now the mainstream social networks sufficient to provide authentication, but the network is too large to be subdivided into smaller networks. In the mobile messaging world, we can send text messages to peers, friends, students, children, and will not use or send status updates microblogging parents. Beluga is no better than the company captures the contradictions in this intimate, its users the same as the whales swim in the sea of Facebook, unimpeded. Of course, Beluga subsequently acquired by Facebook.

Such mobile messaging upstart still in its infancy. Currently, this area can be divided into four types of activities: group chat, text messaging alternatives, random / anywhere that the Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Group chat class has GroupMe, Fast Society, Rabbly, Whatsapp and so on. SMS alternative category has Kik, textPlus, Beluga. Convore interest is provided in accordance with the chat IRC. There are other, more successful companies from India SMSGupShup. These companies rely on users to know who to get the network effect.

And there are some services through more random links to create a new network. Perhaps most controversial is that it can find and talk to them a strange user applications, such as Message Party, TextSlide, Yobongo, of course Color. Most of us have been online with friends and family have established a link, the service is the next evolution in the direction to help us find new contacts Fujitsu ESPRIMO Mobile V5535 battery, Fujitsu LifeBook A3120 battery and Fujitsu LifeBook A6020 battery. This finding helps us to promote these services in the core group of friends and relatives to create a smaller network, or will we have similar interests or position mode of strangers form a new network. If the break in the meeting with Yobongo, you can immediately feel the experience personally, this communication is easier than Twitter for the nearby crowd. This does not mean Yobongo or other similar companies will be successful, but they continue to expand the scope of this area. I think the future will see more use of the concept of products and services.

Mobile Messaging mass of investors, entrepreneurs are attractive to users as well. If well designed, they can take advantage of network effects can be used to promote participation and proven business model can be profitable. This is a new social type of company, from the first day to completely set up to target mobile devices. After they are based on PC / laptop concept designed from the beginning to follow the leader in the field of social development. Recently entered the Red Sea Color Labs this could allow this to become more red sea a bit. We often take for granted that all the existing social network will exist forever and meet most of our needs. Some people realize that the system will create a seamless use of the larger companies such as Facebook and create significant value, because they consider the original design for mobility. While others may break the convention and to create their own lasting social experience
