NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MOKO Social Media Limited (NASDAQ GM: MOKO; ASX: MKB), a provider of highly tailored mobile social community platforms for organized groups, announced today the planned launch of Bluenationreview.com's (BNR) mobile app for iOS and Android this fall 2014. Bluenationreview.com launched in May 2014 and has grown significantly in reach and user engagement since then, making it one of the top six active political groups on Facebook in the U.S. The BNR mobile application will be available on iOS in September 2014 and Android in October 2014.
"We understand that consumers are using their mobile devices more and more every day, so we are pleased to provide our users with the BNR app, which will make reading, commenting and sharing content on BNR easier and more convenient. Since BNR's launch in May, we have seen user engagement increase daily and even surpass many already established brands," said Ian Rodwell, CEO of MOKO Social Media.
In addition to BNR's mobile app, MOKO Social Media will also launch VOYCIT, a non-partisan, user-generated content mobile app that allows users to follow or create groups around specific political issues, candidates, or causes.
VOYCIT will enable both active office holders, and aspiring candidates, to set up channels within VOYCIT to engage and interact with other users. Group categories range from fund raising and petitions, to establishing a local activist group or organizing protests and rallies. The VOYCIT mobile app will be available to everyone, including political parties and interest groups, enabling interaction with VOYCIT users engrossed in a political concern or activity.
Rodwell explains, "VOYCIT's developments are well underway and we are proud of the product that is evolving so quickly. We expect the VOYCIT app to launch in late December 2014."

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
