1. Mxit is Imported into Kenya

Mxit is a massive mobile social network that was started in South Africa a couple years ago. Today, Safaricom announced a partnership with them, using their marketing muscle (7 pages of ads in today’s newspaper) to import Mxit into Kenya.

2. Facebook Zero

This week Facebook launched 0.facebook.com, where they worked out deals with 50 mobile operators in 45 countries to either zero-rate data costs coming to that URL, or paying that data cost themselves. This means that anyone, even those with no airtime on their mobile phone, can still take part in Facebook. http://whiteafrican.com/2010/05/21/facebook-zero-a-paradigm-shift/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+white_african+%28White+African%29
