Yookos is an online social networking site founded in 2011 by the leader of Christ Embassy International. It was initially used by church members, but later the site was expanded to allow public access. Yookos currently has around 10 million registered users worldwide.[1] The site receives more than half of its traffic from Nigeria and the remaining user base is from ZimbabweSouth Africa, the UK and the US.[2]

In January 2013, Yookos partnered with Adfu to increase its market reach and push revenue earnings. This collaboration makes Yookos available across Africa with Adfu as exclusive advertising sales agent. ad-ops team.[3]

Yookos ranks number 5 among the top 10 social networking sites in Africa according to the Pan African Chamber of Commerce.[1]

 

The site launched as an individual entity in January 2011.[2] Yookos was initially a Christian-focused site, established with the aim of conveying spiritual messages among members of Christ Embassy. The site penetrated beyond Africa as traffic steadily increased. Though leaders at the church form a majority of the site’s members, an improved platform has made it available to anyone around the world.

 

In January 2013, Yookos partnered with Adfu to increase its market reach and push revenue earnings. This collaboration gives Adfu a three-year exclusive contract to sell advertising on the site.

Sadly ADFU has also divorced the Internet  and yookos is seemingly on facebook as yookos prayer  https://www.facebook.com/yookosprayer/

 

At a time Even Obama was involved in Yookos mania 


 

President Barack Obama has extolled the importance Yookos which he said is teaching the world new ways to connect. He said this during his welcome address to the 500 young African leaders who are in Washington for the yearly Young African

Leaders Initiative( Yali), President Obama  who used the opportunity to announce the expansion of  his Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) and the renaming of the Washington Fellowship Program after the late South African president, Nelson Mandela highlighted that the social media has helped Americans interact more with Africans. Saying that Americans have been learning from Africans, and  because every interaction is a chance for Americans to see the Africa that so often is overlooked in the media — the Africa that is innovative and growing and dynamic. And a new generation, all of you, on Facebook and Twitter, and creating new ways to connect — like Yookos and MXit. He noted that Yookos and others have bridged this gap that the media overlooked.

Explaining the reasons behind the YALI, he said that through YALI, the United States is investing in the next generation of African leaders, and has committed significant resources to enhance leadership skills, bolster entrepreneurship, and connect young African leaders with one another, the United States, and the American people. In an interview, the State Department’s Rick Stengel, who worked with Mandela on his autobiography, call Yali a ‘force-multiplier’ that can help Africa rise.
So the point is, our young leaders — our Young African Leaders initiative is a long-term investment in all of you and in Africa and the future that we can build together. And today, I want to announce some next steps that I think are important, he said.
He noted that given the extraordinary demand for this fellows program, “we’re going to double it so that in two years, we’ll welcome a thousand Mandela Washington fellows to the United States every year. Second, we’ll do even more to support young entrepreneurs with new grants to help you start a business or a nonprofit, and training thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs in smaller towns and rural areas. And given the success for our annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit, I can announce that next year’s summit will be hosted for the first time in Sub-Saharan Africa, which I think is going to be terrific”. Continuing, he said that “third, we’re launching a whole new set of tools to empower young African through our YALI network — new online courses and mentoring, new ways to meet up and network across Africa and around the world, new training sessions and meetings with experts on how to launch startups. And it all begins today. And to get started, all you have to do is to go to Yali.state.gov — Yali.state.gov — and that will give you information about how you can access all these resources going forward”.
