Our Review

Mocospace was founded in 2005 as a mobile social community. It is used to meet, chat, and have fun with other people through its special features and games. As of late, Mocospace has apparently become a hybrid of a social media platform and an online dating site. 

Mocospace has grown to have 100 million members all over the world with headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, and Herzliya, Israel.

Mocospace is pretty diverse with 1/3 of the membership base being Hispanic and another 1/3 being African-American. 40% of the members are 18 - 24 years old, 24% are 25 - 30 years old, 17% are 31 - 35 years old, and 13% are 35 years old and older. Mocospace is accessed through smartphones by 66% of its users. In a previous survey by Mocospace itself, it was revealed that almost half of the members have broken up with someone through text.

Signing Up

Mocospace Registration
  • Very quick and easy
  • Can also be through Facebook or Google account
  • No verification needed

The sign up process is extremely easy and you can be done in less than a minute. If you want to skip the nit and grit, you can just automatically log in through your Facebook or Google account. Only your username, password, email, birthday, and gender are needed to create an account. You're required to upload a profile photo too, but unlike other sites, Mocospace doesn't review these photos.

Making Contact

Mocospace Messaging
  • Unlimited for all members
  • Account has to be verified before you can access the chat rooms

You can chat to other members by joining an existing chat room or creating a brand new one. Your chat room can be about any topic. There is a limit to the number of members who can join a chat room, but no specific number has been stated. Even a direct message to only one member shows up in the chat room publicly.

Profile Quality

Mocospace Profile
  • Can be private or public
  • Profile photos and headers can be GIFs
  • Some accounts have profile photos of celebrities
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Profiles can be private or public. Your friend request has to be accepted first before you can view a private profile. Mocospace members tend to have only a few bits of information available on their profile. What takes up most of their feed is their activity. Alarmingly, the feed shows a member's entire activity on the site (including which photos they've liked) which seems to be a breach of privacy.

App

Mocospace App
  • Free users will get pop-up ads every few minutes
  • Premium version of app only available for Android users

The default landing page on the app is the "Meet People" feature. You can set filters however you want to find the type of people you want. The app has a simple and user-friendly design. However, the functions seem to take a second longer to load. It may not sound like much, but when you get used to the seamless transition on apps like Facebook or Twitter, the difference becomes glaringly obvious.

Real Life Review

"I've been a Mocospace user for 4 years and I've made a lot of online friends. I was so happy when they announced an app because I could just use it on my phone whenever but the app is such a disappointment. I can't enjoy anything without being interrupted by video ads (which take a couple of seconds before they could be closed!). I think I'll stick to the website." - Male Gamer (25)

Design and Usability

The website looks neat and is easy to navigate. Much like Facebook, the timeline is full of new updates from other members. Unlike Facebook, the posts you will see on your timeline are of everyone on the website, not just your friends. The games are easy to find and fun to play. Video tutorials are available all around to help you find your way through the website. Because of privacy concerns, you'll find yourself seeing various warnings about sharing personal information on the website.

Is MocoSpace expensive or cheap?

In comparison to other providers MocoSpace is average.

Payment Options
  • Credit Card

You can't access the premium offers without providing your credit card information first, which seemed sketchy. Additionally, you can only pay through your credit card and nowhere else (e.g. your iTunes/Google Play account). In their fine print, Mocospace allows themselves to charge you without needing additional notice or consent. Although a lot of dating websites renew subscriptions automatically, the wording in this is especially suspicious.

Special Features

Mocospace is a mobile community that offers numerous games where you can play and make friends with other members.

Friendshop

Friendshop is a hilarious game where "you buy and sell your friends". Yes, real people from your Friends list. Likewise, other players can buy you. The tip here is to buy low and sell high. When a person you own is purchased by another player, you and the purchased person both get profit. Whenever someone purchases you, your value goes up. Purchasing a person requires Friendshop cash, which is a fake currency only available within the game.

Street Wars

In Street Wars, you can play with other Mocospace members in a mafia setting. You can gain money and power by going on head-to-head fights with your enemies and completing dangerous missions. You are rewarded with points to improve your income, stamina, and health as you proceed through the game and recruit other players. As your mob of recruits grows, you are able to defeat your opponents more easily. Purchases using Moco Gold are available within the game.

Daily Spin

This feature is a sort of "Spin the Wheel" game that can only be played once each day. The Daily Spin gives you the chance to win a range of prizes, including 100,000 Gold, up to 200 trillion Street Wars cash, additional free spins, and so much more. Every spin results in a prize. Game prizes are automatically added to your ongoing games, and Gold prizes are automatically added to your Moco Gold balance.

Stickers

Stickers are just like regular emoticons, except they're bigger. They can be used in chats, instant messages, offline messages, forum posts, or comments. Some Stickers are free while others are not. Some Stickers have to be paid for using Moco Gold before they can be unlocked and used. Once Stickers are bought, you have unlimited access to them indefinitely.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
Mocospace started out as one of the front-runners in social networking right beside Myspace and Facebook. As Facebook's popularity skyrocketed and Myspace became a forgotten relic in everybody's childhood, Mocospace evolved and turned into something different. Online articles would have you believe that Mocospace has become something resembling a dating website, but we disagree. From our test we conclude that a lot of members log in mostly for the games; they want to make friends and play for fun. Dating is not a priority.
