LONDON – The mobile social networking user base, currently accounting for approximately 1.1 billion worldwide, is set to grow at 11.8% CAGR over the next five-year period to reach over 1.9 billion users. This huge market has many dynamics of monetization, user habits, fierce competition and localized trends dictating its development.

Mobile social networking is very attractive for marketers because it creates a unique context in which to promote their goods and services. It goes beyond simply linking people with digital content by adding the immediacy of sharing with friends – a very powerful marketing proposition. However, trying to monetize mobile social networking with classic banners or text links may prove difficult.
