MobiCom – Study on Mobile Communities

A study on how to develop successful mobile communities in the domains of games, learning and health

Because of the rapid diffusion and extensive use of mobile devices communities that interact via mobile services have become an important factor for promoting products and services. The MobiCOM project analysed the requirements for developing successful mobile communities and identified a number of best practice examples with focus on the domains of games, learning and health. The recommendations of the study are based on the analysis of successful as well as unsuccessful mobile community projects and expert opinion on the future development of such communities. The MobiCOM study has been published in the „Social Media“ series of the Salzburg NewMediaLab.
