The writing is on the wall for MXit, in South Africa anyways. Or the writing has been on the wall for a long time, nobody was really noticing. Have a look at the Google trends graph above. 2go another mobile instant messaging app has more interest than Mxit has today. It was fun while it lasted. I’ve met some of the most interesting people who have worked at MXit but it appears thing have been going downhill ever since word-of-mouth powered WhatsApp and the well funded WeChat hit our shores. There may be other reasons too.
What will be the next big thing from South Africa to make the world notice? What else, in your opinion, except Whatsapp caused mxit to flounder?
