Interesting new Social Networking Space from Yahoo!

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.

What do you think about this type of social networking space? Please leave a comment.
