Welcome to Moblog, the mother of social media

This ancient site is the mother of all social media. It was an international community that argued, yelled, swore and also comforted, consoled and loved. It had the crazy idea of uploading mobile phone photos and commenting on them...way before Instagram, Facebook, et al. We learned how to talk to each other, how to be on the web, we argued about what was acceptable and what was not (no driving and taking photos), and we went on to live and do other things online...Moblog is still alive and well, still connected, but scattered like stars across the web. This site is still alive and you are welcome to join and post photos and be part of a community. The guardians of this site are legion, elders of the internet, believers in chaos, joy and that everyone has something of value to express.

New Server and Refurbished Undercarriage

It might not look like much, but it was important!
We have made a major upgrade to the engine running Moblog and also moved it to a new server. This baby is now running on Django 1.7 and on a whole new box. It was a big job for Mat and Manju to upgrade us from version 1 of Django through a whole 7 versions without a hitch. So three cheers for them! However, please let us know if you experience any glitches as we might not have found all the bugs yet! You'll notice some little changes here and there. The home page is gone and the site now runs off the latest page only. There is also a smaller set of features in the navigation bar at the top. More changes are planned. We now also have a staging site so we can start testing new designs and features without causing problems on the live site. Whoop!

Mo' Blogging Photo Competitions

Cos Less is Mo'!
Loads of you have been asking for it, so Photoblogging Competitions are back!

We've made it really simple to enter!

Every contest will be designated a "keyword" (for example, "StrangeBeauty") to tag your Moblog post entry with.

Just tag your post (using the little '+' sign) with that word to enter.


The latest theme to interpret will be posted on the Competitions Moblog.

P.S As this competition is not running off a a single group Moblog, (like say, Caption Competition), it means that anyone can enter via their own Moblog.

More importantly you can enter any photo, not just the most recent. As long as you tag it with "the keyword" you can enter it into the competition gallery. It doesn't matter how old your photo is. If you feel that it fits the theme, then share what you see!

So, what are you waiting for? Get moblogging and share what you see!

Happy 10th Birthday Moblog!

10 years ago today, Moblog's first image was posted to the site. Can you believe it's been 10 years?

A huge thanks to all of you who have stuck with us!

When Moblog first launched, we called ourselves the "futurephone" community. Yet, mobile phone technology has changed dramatically over the last 10 years and transformed the entire digital landscape to be almost unrecognizable from when this community first started.

The key players in the cell phone space are no longer the hardware manufacturers of Finland and Japan, but the software giants of Silicon Valley. The term mobile, is no longer synonymous with simply phones, but an array of 'devices' in general - we've gone from pagers and 'dumb' phones, to smartphones and tablets. Even now, we're on the brink of witnessing new mobile device categories emerging in the form of smartwatches and smart glasses.

However, despite all this change, your support over the years has meant that Moblog is still here.

Yes, it's been a bumpy ride, but now we are busily planning the third version of this site. We don't know exactly what the future is going to look like but the journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step.

So, to celebrate 10 years of Moblog we're taking that step today by launching two new community blogs dedicated to app reviews for Android and iOS/Apple devices.
