- Social Networking is not restricted to the confines of the pc browser. In India, mobile phones are the preferred and mostly the sole means of connecting with friends and family. This year we are all set to refine and redefine the boundaries of Social Networking in India.
- With a registered user base of 2.3 million in a year we needed to sensitize the platform to local aspirations and needs of the market. The number of mobile users today far exceeds the penetration and usage of pcs in India. Mobiles are lot more personal, readily accessible and almost an extension of the user. The imperative was to create a mobile application to give the controls of social networking, anytime – anywhere, literally.
- 'Mobile Adda’ includes key features of social networking like searching for friends, inviting them from your phonebook, communicating with friends through innovative options like text, voice and photo scribbles. This On- The-Move application promises to keep its users ahead at all times with auto-updates, alert and notifications and helpful tips. This will be a major departure for users of social networks, from being an occasional visitor to now proactively driving their networks.
