Many successful apps today owe their success to being able to leverage social networking for their users. They allow people around the world to interact in a variety of ways (messaging, videos, photos, and the like).
Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and Google+ (and its video social networking arm YouTube) are today's top social networking sites. They allow users to post messages and comments, pictures, videos and other such content. Some up-and-comers are Path and VK (Russia's counterpart to Facebook).
Other big social networking companies have expanded their services to remain competitive. Yahoo acquired Tumblr (a microblogging site) in early 2015 to be able to compete in the social networking arena. Twitter acquired Vine, a sharing site for six-second videos, in 2012.
Text Messages, Phone and Mail are like bread and butter for any social networking app, all of the top ones and the runner-ups have options for users to use at least two of the three features.
Some apps that are more limited have also become very popular because of the rise of smartphones and tablets. Two such examples are WhatsApp and WeChat, which are basically just messaging services.
Onix ensures Android apps we create can integrate with the most powerful social media channels and messengers. We take care of making the registration process for users as simple as possible, allowing the app receive all necessary information from a user's social media profile.
