Yookos launches new API at World Mobile Web W/Africa conference

To give developers in Africa the opportunity to create applications that suite the trending and emerging social media landscape, Yookos a social network site that focuses on providing users the best platform to connect, share and interact has launched their Application Programming Interface (API) at the World Mobile Web West Africa 2013 Conference in Lagos. 

The announcement was made during the company’s presentation to key industry leaders as well as various sponsors from every part of the continent. Continue...


The release of the APIs will now enable developers, including techprenuers, to create applications for the cross-section of social media channels that can be used on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Speaking at the event, Group CEO for Yookos, Mr. Tomisin Fashina, said that “We are particularly pleased that as a company we have reached yet another momentous milestone in the development of our platform. What makes this remarkable is that it facilitates the crowdsourcing of innovative ideas and solutions that will not only expand the functionality of the platform but also make its usage an exhilarating experience.

Our focus is not just about getting something from developers but we also plan to give back through our multifaceted approach that will see the launch of the programmes focused on university students, community engagement sessions aimed at attracting young people to the profession, as well as educational peer engagement sessions’’.

He added that, Yookos will also host a free developer’s workshop in Lagos at Four Points by Sheraton on Tuesday, 14 May 2013 to reinforce the company’s commitment to empower developers in the region. 


Mr Fashina further disclosed that the workshop will also be used to introduce Yookos' newly released APIs which can be found at http://api.yookos.com to the global developer community and it will also present an exciting opportunity for the developers to network and share new ideas.

In his comment, General Manager Yookos Nigeria, Mr Gboyega Adelowore, revealed that, we have created a very rich and interactive API to help in the management of eco-system and to ensure that developers get the best as they experience it.

The global social networking site was officially launched in Nigeria in 2011 and currently boasts over 13 million registered users worldwide with Nigeria accounting for more than 60% of that base.

I am glad it is the two of you that are braging about your church that equally know so much about hate. It is very obvious that you lack the wisdom to win souls to christ. You are rather more interested in those who hate you and want to attack you. Baby christians that think church will take them to heaven. Sorry you have both missed the right track.

Are you for real? We should see you here as a representative of Christembassy and Yookos and what you believe in. It would appear you came out just to fight whoever that will disagree with you. Be a Christ ambassador and spread the word instead of the hate. Go and sin no more.
