So 2009 seems to be the year of the Tomi Ahonen ebook ha-ha. But these Pearls really are great stories and the eBooks write themselves. So yes, following the wonderfully warm reception of Pearls Vol 1: Mobile Advertising, I now offer Pearls Vol 2: Mobile Social Networking. My ninth book is also my third in eBook format. Like Vol 1, this too is 171 pages in length, formated for the small screen so you can read it off your iPhone or Blackberry or smartphone (or any ebook reader like Kindle or your laptop obviously).
The topic is Social Networking on mobile. So this is "mobile communities dominate". It covers user-generated content, citizen journalism, blogging, multiplayer gaming, dating, web 2.0, and all related topics but with a focus on the 50 best case examples of who is making money with this area of mobile social networking. And it really is a roll-call of the best of this new breed of companies: Habbo Hotel, Cyworld, Flirtomatic, Mixi, Itsmy, Mobage Town, SeeMeTV, Twitter, Tohato, Mogi, myMTV, CNN iReport, OhmyNews, Qik and the Obama iPhone app...
The stories cover a dozen countries across three continents and include 10 Pearls I have not shown into the public domain. And the eBook is available for download now, so you can read the Pearls for yourself today. And best of all, it only costs 9.99 Euros. Thats 20 cents per valid business idea... And I even quote from 8 of the actual executives at these pioneering companies.
There will be sample pages from the eBook at the book information and ordering page (which is the only place where you can order Pearls Vol 2. Check it out at Pearls Vol 2: Mobile Social Networking
