VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Mobio INsider, the social network for influencers and their followers, and a portfolio company of LX Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: LXV), has achieved a number of major milestones in its first five months of operation:
-- 221,000 registered users (via Facebook and Twitter social login) -- 4.8 million unique visitors -- 26.7 million page views -- 232 countries and territories (inbound traffic) -- 592,000+ fan questions/requests -- 50+ celebrity influencers -- 78% mobile usage -- 22.1 million native ad impressions -- Ad unit rates up to $7 eCPM on native mobile banners and $84 eCPM on pre-roll video -- 1,459 unique inbound link sources including MTV, People, Huffington Post, E!

"Mobio continues to expand its global reach, with the next leg of growth coming from the recently launched revenue sharing program, "Be Social. Get Paid," commented Mark Binns, CEO of Mobio. "The combination of Mobio's social media traffic and Strutta's social promotions platform also provides a compelling new way for advertisers to engage with their target audience. This dynamic combination accelerates revenue growth and value creation for the shareholders of LX Ventures."
Strutta Realizes Initial Milestone Payment
Strutta, which was acquired by LXV on January 31, 2014 and subsequently converged with Mobio INsider, has also attained the first revenue-based milestone agreed to as part of the purchase of Strutta. Upon the integrated offerings of Mobio INsider and Strutta's social promotions platform reaching a monthly revenue target of $100,000, LXV is required to issue 3,125,000 common shares to the former shareholders of Strutta. The shares issued today pursuant to the milestone target are subject to a 4 month hold period and are subject to further pooling restrictions over the next 18 months thereafter.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
