The platform has been growing into “social media behemoth”.
It is quickly extending beyond the borders of Africa, in fact in a recent speech made by former President of the United States, Barak Obama, he noted its significant impact on the world of technology, spirituality and innovation. The fast-growing site was not always like this and started with very humble beginnings. In a recent CBNC Africa interview with the Yookos CEO Tomisin Fashina, he shared some of the company’s history and how it blossomed from a Christ Embassy twitter page.
Fashina noticed that the church had a massive Twitter following and felt that it would more worthwhile to have their own social network and “use it for what we are doing.” Based on that, they created Yookos and “saw the opportunity to make it open for everybody.”
