FUTURE: Christians seek social networking success

Since then, yookos.com it has seen its membership grow to 6million subscribers worldwide. And in line with its Christian roots, the site doesn’t allow users to post pornography, violent content or use vulgar language.

Yookos’ chief executive, Tomisin Foshina, who also serves as a zonal pastor for Christ Embassy, wants to see membership increase to 20 million during the next 12 months.

He said: “Yookos gives people, businesses and organisations the power to connect and engage with people of similar interest in an open, secure and connected community. We’re passionate about the youth, and want to build a safe online environment for the next generation.”

He added: “We see ourselves as a values-based social network designed to reach out to everyone, regardless of religion, politics, gender or location. This is a meeting place for all who seek a positive and fruitful outlook on life to connect, be entertained, be educated, interact and get value from their online experience.”
