MocoSpace takes elements of many other social networks, messaging services, and dating apps, and combines them all into one. You can create and view profiles, upload photos, and meet and chat with new people.
Social dating app
Facebook and Whatsapp dominate the social media/messaging scene, but there are still worthwhile alternatives. If you’re looking to meet like-minded people or potentially hook up with someone, MocoSpace might be up your street.
Create and search profiles
The whole point of MocoSpace is to check out other people’s profiles. All profiles are displayed with a main photo, alongside the age, sex and location of the person. You can search for profiles via specific functions, including area radius, gender, age, and sexual preference. The wealth of options for the latter is especially welcome.
The app also encourages you to make your own profile. You can customise it with music, videos, photos and status updates. It’s also possible to add people as friends and build your own network.
Legacy and niche
MocoSpace was founded in 2005 and benefited from Myspace’s burgeoning popularity and similar social media sites. It’s impressive MocoSpace is still going, which is likely in part to its focus on dating and communities like African Americans and Hispanics/Latinos.
To further push the social network aspect, the app also includes a game zone where many can play against other people.
One feature MocoSpace does have going for it is the chat rooms. In these, you can meet people from absolutely anywhere in the world. If you’re more interested in dating, you can also create one-on-one chats. The only downside is the number of fake profiles and bot accounts, which is mostly avoided on reputable dating sites like Match.com.
Perfectly adequate social media app
MocoSpace does what it does reasonably well, but the big question is if it’s necessary. With plenty of more popular and reputable apps/sites out there (like OkCupid and Badoo), there’s no real need to use MocoSpace.
