Yobongo is a mobile communication startup currently in private beta testing. They keys to the service are location, realtime, and identity.
Yobongo is a new way for people to communicate with people nearby. We believe connecting with people in the real world is much harder than it should be. That by giving people the opportunity to connect with other like minded people we can help foster authentic communications about everything and anything.
Mobile devices are more powerful than ever before, but the way we communicate on them hasn't kept pace. Always connected and location aware devices demand new approaches to make communicating more efficient and fun. Yobongo aims to re-imagine the way we communicate on mobile devices. Yobongo is available on iPhone and iPod Touch.
The world is filled with places where people can pretend to be someone they're not. Yobongo isn't one of them. Yobongo is about authentic conversations with real people. That is why we require real photos and real names. Because when you are being yourself you can forge real connections and friendships.
