Eskimi Tops Google on Opera's List of Mobile Destinations in Nigeria


Nigerians are getting involved with mobile social networking site Eskimi.  Opera Software released its monthly State of the Mobile Web report, and this month focused on the growth of the mobile web browsing in Africa. The report looks at the usage of Opera Mini across 53 African countries in the past 12 months. Eskimi became the 2nd most visited site in Nigeria and Namibia.
Eskimi managed to overtake Google, Yahoo, BBC, Goal.com in Nigeria and Namibia during last 6 months. That is pretty huge since search, news and sports have been at the top for a long time now. A sign that the hunger for social networking and local content is really on the rise, especially since Facebook is the only site that leads Eskimi.
You can see Eskimi's Co-Founder & CEO Vytautas Paukstys speaking at NigeriaCom, taking place in Lagos, Nigeria, this 26-27 September. @VytasPaukstys
