Vojo | MIT Center for Civic Media


Vojo.co is a hosted mobile blogging platform that makes it easy for people to post stories from inexpensive mobile phones via voice calls, SMS, and MMS. Our goal is to foster greater inclusion in in the digital public sphere.

You don't need a smart phone or an app to post stories to a Vojo group - any phone will do. You don't even need internet access: Vojo lets you create an account via sms and start posting right away. In addition to content posting via voice, sms, and MMS, and sms registration, features include:tags, geocoding, maps, MMS filters, groups, and group messaging. Group admins can also send sms and multimedia content out to registered users' mobile phones.

Vojo is powered by the VozMob Drupal Distribution, which has been developed through an ongoing collaborative design process by day laborers, household workers, students, and a diverse team from the Institute of Popular Education of Southern California (IDEPSCA).
