VOIS: An OTC Listed Social Network

vois.jpgBoca Raton, Florida based VOIS Inc offers yet another social networking site but with one distinct difference: it’s traded on the OTC:BB.

The site itself offers your usual array of social networking features: user profiles, blogs, groups, classifieds etc etc. Traffic to the site isn’t wonderful, but I’ve seen far worse as well, with vois.com tracking at around the 10,000 mark on Alexa. Of course it wouldn’t be a social network if it wasn’t popular in a country most of you won’t care about: VOIS is big in Egypt, Palestine and Jordan, tracking in the top 1000 sites in each country.

The OTC listing looks and feels like a Web 1.0 play it’s because it is. VOIS Inc., was previously MedStrong International, and changed its name to VOIS Inc in March after acquiring (or merging) with VOIS Networks in February. Back-door listings might be on the way back; this is the second social networking site listed this way we’ve reported on recently, with BOOMj having taken the same path in late October.

I can’t see VOIS winning any awards for its service, but those with a stock market fetish looking to play around with some investments in this space, VOIS gives you that option.
