Hi all, Ive been watching the social media space in africa for a while now, ive seen facebook/twitters sweep us off our feet. Now im wondering? 1) What happened to our african social networks? made or coded in Africa? For Africans. 2) What tools would african social networks have to add to have an edge with facebook/twitter? 3) Is it secure to have our personnal details saved in a database offshore? you can read more on high mortality of social networks here High mortality rate of African social networks. 4) Can we be more pan african and support our african innovators? Is there a firm responsible for success of ICT in africa?
