It’s clear that social networking is relatively very popular on mobile. For developers, this probably means thinking more about tieing your app into social networking services either through direct APIs or through the associated social network app on the phone. Up to now, I have considered such things as an unwelcome distraction from the app itself but I am now thinking that it’s becoming more desirable if it fits in with your app.
