Mxit is a social networking application for users in Africa. Users of Mxit can share updates, chat with friends, text message, and upload images and media, among other things.
The Mxit API allows developers to access and integrate Mxit with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include sending and receiving messages, listing and retrieving elements, and managing user accounts.
When it comes to Social Networks, Facebook definitely towers over the rest when it comes to numbers. While Facebook might be hard at work to expand its reach by entering new areas, Mxit which is Africa’s largest social network has plans of its own to expand its base by throwing open its platform via the Mxit API and encouraging developers to integrate Mxit into their applications.
