– MOKO Online: Australian company Loop Mobile (ASX: LPM) has launched an online version of its MOKO Mobile community, giving its users access via PC (and of course letting other people sign up). The address is the same, the community detects what device is being used for access. MOKO has 100,000 paid registrations, is on carrier decks in the UK and Australia, and claims 100 million page impressions per month (1,000 per user) and an average user session time of 75.8 minutes in October 2007. If these numbers are correct Loop has figured out how to keep people on its site, and at this point is probably going for scale.
