Yahoo has “quietly launched” a new mobile social-networking service called Mixd that gives groups of friends a Web site “where all the pictures, videos and messages sent through the phones will be posted for viewing later,” InformationWeek reports.
Like other phone-based social services, Mixd is “centered on making it easy for groups of friends to use text messaging as a way to organize a party, meet in a restaurant, attend a football game or arrange any other social activity. Yahoo expects users to form a lot of ad hoc groups around particular events, and use the service’s ‘reply-to-all’ feature as way to communicate collectively.”
InformationWeek adds that Yahoo plans to market Mixd on college campuses around the country.
