The Importance of Mobility for Social Computing October 10, 2008

In a recent online survey conducted by ABI Research results showed that at least 46 percent (nearly half) were accessing Social Network Technologies by their mobile devices with strong results for MySpace and Facebook eclipsing any other technology.

I feel this is strong evidence for a need to seriously consider pervasive devices when implementing Social Technology initiatives, and indeed in the design of the UIs for the products.

I know both Facebook and WordPress have already developed iPhone interfaces, as I am using those, and there are over 83 solutions in the AppStore under the Social Networking Category which include LinkedIn and MySpace apps as well as plethora of options for Twitter and Blogging.

Overall, an interesting usage characteristic for Social Technology Architects.
