NEW SOCIAL NETWORK LAUNCHED BY FACEBOOK CO-FOUNDER

MOBO Media

Chris Hughes co-founder the world’s most popular social network, Facebook, has now turned his attention to creating a new social network, this time aimed at helping the world to become a better place.

The newly formed network named Jumo, aims to connect charities with organisations and individuals around the world who may need their help, or want to help them. The main goal of Jumo is twofold; firstly their goal is to improve the lives of people by connecting them with organisations that can offer them support and assistance connected to them specifically, and to connect charities with people and companies who can help them.

Jumo currently has 3,500 worldwide users covering over 200 different areas including charities which work in alleviating poverty, helping the environment, improving education, preserving wildlife, fighting for gay rights, plus support for young people and women.

27-year-old Chris Hughes is credited with co-founding Facebook with Mark Zuckerberg back in 2004 when the pair were studying at Harvard University. Since launching the network among their college mates, the social media site has become a phenomenon, boasting 500 million active users worldwide.

As well as his success with Facebook, Chris Hughes was also instrumental in Barack Obama’s social media campaign while running for election which saw him win the election to become President of the United States of America.

With a track record like that behind him, expectations are high for Chris Hughes’ latest project. Jumo, which means “together in concert” in the African language of Yoruba, hopes to build links between charities, individuals and organisations for the good of the world.
