Mobile Social Networking – Monday Sept 17th 7pm

Free Registration (required): Sorry…our meeting space is at capacity given the level of RSVP’s, so we are SOLD OUT. Our next event will be on October 30th in cooperation with VON Boston.

While people of all ages can spend hours staring at Facebook, are they willing to do the same on their mobile phone? What’s different about delivering services to social networks through mobile? What are the viable business models?

Jason Karas of Orange Labs Boston will moderate a panel of experts and practitioners in this space to explore these and many other questions on mobile social networking.
