Think Facebook apps are the most frequently used apps for social networking and chat in Nigeria? Well, you have to think again, because 2go is actually the top app used for social networking and chat by mobile subscribers in Nigeria, at least according to a non scientific mobile apps usage poll we conducted on our Facebook fan page in December, 2011.

In the poll, we requested our fans on Facebook and Twitter to state their 3 most frequently used mobile apps with emphasis on Android, BlackBerry, Series 40, and Symbian. 2go chat happens to be one of the top mobile apps.

2go chat came second overall with 14.4% popularity, behind the Opera mini/mobile browser apps, which is the most frequently used mobile app in Nigeria with 20.9% popularity. Facebook is the second most popular social networking/IM app in Nigeria and finished third overall with 11.1% popularity.

Note that the poll considers only mobile apps, so it does not mean that 2go is more popular than Facebook. It simply means that more mobile users access 2go via its app than access Facebook via app. This could suggest that some mobile users prefer accessing Facebook via third party apps or mobile browsers. It could also suggest that some mobile users have not downloaded the official Facebook apps.

2go is more popular for Nokia

Although 2go chat is popular, it is important to state here that its popularity was more pronounced for Symbian smartphones and Nokia Series 40 feature phones. 2go was the second most popular app for both Symbian and Series 40 users. No BlackBerry respondent mentioned 2go, suggesting that Facebook, BlackBerry Messenger, and Twitter are enough for BlackBerry subscribers. 2go chat was also popular for a few Android users.

What is 2go?

Okay, you have never heard of 2go, maybe you are a BlackBerry subscriber. Well, 2go is an instant messaging app that enables you chat with your friends free on your mobile phone. You can also share stuff like photos with your friends. Its major strength is its simplicity and lightweight.

The simplicity and lightweight of 2go chat explains why it is very popular on feature phones, which is the most popular type of phone used by Nigerians and Africans. If your mobile phone supports Java, you download 2go for free chat with your friends on your mobile phone. Discover 2go messenger.
