MocoSpace Leaps Past the 6 Million Registered User Mark
Mobile Community Experiences Industry Leading Growth and Engagement
BOSTON, MA - March 31, 2009 - MocoSpace (http://www.mocospace.com
) registered its 6 millionth user Friday just after passing the 5 million milestone days before the December holidays. The mobile community's rapid growth comes from many sources, most significantly via word of mouth with its young members often inviting their friends.
According to a recent Openwave report based on mobile Internet traffic in North America, social networking is the number one area of interest for mobile Internet users. In addition, it found that MocoSpace members were more engaged with the site than any other site in the social networking category. According to the report MocoSpace members spent an average of 6.05 minutes per session versus 3.79 minutes for MySpace mobile users and 1.89 minutes for those using Facebook on the mobile phone.
"We continue to experience terrific word of mouth growth mostly among younger consumers looking for a great mobile experience and certainly the Openwave report confirms our ability to capture their attention," said Justin Siegel, co-founder and CEO of MocoSpace. "Very few, if any, companies have the depth and breadth of information that Openwave has, so it's very exciting that they are sharing some of this information and of course its nice that it validates our own data, which indicate that MocoSpace is really growing in popularity and relevance."
MocoSpace allows users to create profiles, upload and share pictures, chat, IM, blog and more all from their mobile device. The site can be reached at http://www.mocospace.com
