Mobshare is an innovative platform that allows users to share their camera phone images, audio files, videos, blogs etc through an online platform. With a mobshare registration, a user is allowed to create his personal web-space with which he/she can upload his/her camera phone images/videos through MMS* and immediately view it on the internet or mobile phone browsers. The medium allows a user to document his wide range of experiences through photographs & share it with his friends, relatives or larger communities of the user’s choice. The technology presents an opportunity to unlock the combined addictive power of the Internet & mobile phone messaging. * – you can also upload online or even email.

What is a Multimedia Blog?
‘Blog’ is a term derived from weB- LOGging which started as more of an online
diary where people could write about anything under the sun. It became a huge
hit in the late 90’s when people started blogging on anything & everything.
Blogging eventually upgraded from just being a text archiving to a more modern
multimedia archiving, where text wasn’t all alone, but had images, audio &
video as well, to give more dimensions to the whole concept.
