â€œNearly every online social networking site has added the ability to connect to these communities with a mobile phone, allowing people to access profiles and share content while theyâ€™re on the go. With the mobile phone playing a central role in peopleâ€™s social lives, itâ€™s only natural that social networking sites are working to bridge the gap between the online and mobile worlds,â€ said Mark Donovan, senior analyst, M:Metrics.
True enough, social networking and web 2.0 startups continue to proliferate around the web and into our mobile devices. Twitter and Pownce, for example, have their own mobile way of updating, too. With this recent findings by M:Metrics, one shouldn’t be surprised that soon enough, other social networks will eventually add mobile functionality to their services also.
