Mobile phone users may wish to use the internet on the move.

Mobile recycling may be an option worth considering for people looking to stay up to date with the latest news from social networking sites.

People could find the cash they receive from Envirofone allows them to purchase a new smartphone with access to the internet while on the move.

According to a post on The Wall, a social media and marketing site, research by web development agency Sense Internet found that 80 per cent of businesses believe Facebook is the most effective social networking platform.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, said: "In the age of smartphones, it's as important to people to keep up with social networking as it is to text or make phonecalls. By selling your old handset for cash, you can make sure you're always up to speed with your social life."

People could use social networking sites to follow their favourite brands and businesses.

Andrew Girdwood, head of search at bigmouthmedia, suggested people are happy to follow a brand on Twitter because they can keep up to date in a discreet way.

"Whereas with Facebook it is much more public and I think that's why people are a lot more hesitant about sharing that information," he said.

He added that one is a recommendation and the other is an expressed interest.
