Recycle mobile phones: Children's social network Moshi Monsters moving to m
Moshi Monsters, the social network for children, is working on developing a full mobile phone version of the platform.
While the mobile site is being worked on, the firm has joined forces with mobile social gaming company Gree to offer children two games that feature pet monsters, BBC News reports.
Moshi Monsters has 60 million registered users around the world. In the online world, youngsters can choose from one of six virtual pet monsters to create, name and care for.
Parent company Mind Candy has also expressed an interest in expanding the Moshi Monsters brand into educational video music content.
Chief executive of Mind Candy Michael Acton Smith said coming up with a mobile site for the social network is something that is constantly requested by children.
"Kids love smartphones and tablets so developing entertainment for these platforms is going to be a huge growth area over the next few years as their access to them grows," he added.
