App Innovation in Social Features

  • Ted Morgan, CEO, Skyhook
    • Today many app categories not traditionally used for social purposes are now heavily using social features, indicating the importance of social features and their contribution to app innovation. We predict that in the next year, most apps across all categories will integrate social features, causing communities to be created within apps and app stickiness factor to increase dramatically. The more user engagement that's created using social features, the more apps become heavily relied on and therefore an integral part of a user's everyday life.
