Social networking is set to become an important use of mobile phones in the coming years

Social networking users may be at the front of the queue to recycle their used phones and upgrade to one of the market's latest models in order to keep up with a growing trend.

Steven Van Belleghem, managing director at InSites Consulting, predicts the area in which sites such as Facebook, Myspace and Twitter will grow significantly in the years to come is mobile phones.

"It is currently integrated in the lives of the majority of internet users. The strong growth of mobile internet will increase this integration process even more," he explains.

The expert adds he believes the increasing prominence of smartphones in everyday life is another reason to expect social networking via mobiles to surge.

Mr Van Belleghem's comments come after research by Airwide Solutions found 94 per cent of all global operators think social networking will be the most common method of communication by 2015, with mobiles one of the core facilitators of this.
