Experience

I have always played around on the Internet, building websites for people and using social media to market them. But one night while watching CNN I thought over a lot of things watching the white man do wonders in this digital age, such wonders which include, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and others, then I convinced myself that I will build a social network and take it one step at a time to eventually make it worthy of competition with Facebook and others.

Due to my knowledge of HTML, CSS and a bit of JavaScript I built the Imongo on the GROU.PS Platform so I could be realizing a part of my dream while advancing in Java, PHp, jQuery, and others in order to truly prepare to build a world class social network.

Desire

I had always desired to see myself in the history books as that African, that Nigerian who made great impact in the digital age by creating a social utility that will become worthy of competition with digital age wonders.
