The Commission for Communication Regulation in Ireland reports that SMS messaging is increasing quarter on quarter and the volume of text messages sent has increased by 33.5% from 2007 to 2008. Multimedia messages including picture messages continue to increase while voice calls are down.  

  • The ability to reach potential users despite them not having WAP-enabled phones or Java applications as text messaging overcomes all handset limitations. Reach users in emerging markets where there are limited data connections.

  • Reach your users when they are off-line from your social network and 'tickle' them to sign in or alert them of new messages or developments - increase their interaction with your site. More 'eyeballs' means more advertising revenue.

  • Offer your users more value by using SMS text messaging to authenticate sign-ins, message alerts, info on product offerings and offer flexible communication options. Happy customers are loyal customers. 

  • Increase your revenue. Using premium-rated text messaging allows social network sites to charge for monthly subscriptions as well as facilitating direct sales.  

  • Allows your social network users' freedom of movement and access from wherever they are in the world, whenever they want.

  • They can post and receive content while on the 'go' through text messaging to a public stream. This allows greater interactivity between your site or application and your customers. 

  • They can 'check-in' and 'locate' other users in their physical vicinity.

  • They can receive alerts to posts they have subscribed to as well as alerts to new mail or developments within the network.

  • They can interact more deeply with your social network site.
