Yo takes on Twitter with new sharing features

News overnight from San Francisco is that the new social network Yo has added features that allow users to share links and social media content. Yo launched in June, allowing users simply to send alerts to their friends - the word Yo - but with a large user base, we think that the new features will take the app which has a Snapchat look and feel to a new level.

Yo has 2.5m total users, 1.2m of them active users, and raised $1m in funding in June 2014. Yo's stated aim is to be the next Twitter. You can read more here on the FT's report from last night.
