Mocospace is owned and run by the Boston Massachusetts based company, JNJ mobile Inc. JNJ Mobile is relatively reputable with a rating of 89.99 on BBB.
It began as an online mobile gaming site with just basic public chat rooms for gamers to keep in touch. Today, we understand that it has grown to a full-blown social networking service with a vibrant mobile gaming community and dating chat. As some of the users have rightly put it, “We came for the games but stayed for the friends!”
🆓 Free services and paid services
Like most dating sites, Mocospace is not entirely free. While it offers several free services, the real juice lies in the paid ones. The free services include:
- Creating a profile.
- Accessing blog posts, groups, and private chat forums.
- Browsing the profiles of other users.
- Viewing uploaded photos.
- Unlimited instant messaging service to the people you are interested in.
- Checking who viewed your profile.
- Working on stealth mode.
- Removing the ads on the Mocospace app.
- Getting a higher ranking on its Meet People section.
- Getting your photo labelled as VIP.
- Getting access to priority support assistance.
- Purchasing eCards and stickers.
💰 Prices and types of membership
Individuals on Mocospace fall into either regular, VIP, or VIP Legacy membership categories. A boost in your membership ranking leads to increased access to the services on the site and a better experience.
We discovered that most Mocospace users like to upgrade to VIP status. For short term use, most opt for a monthly subscription worth R 163 per month. If you plan on a long term use of the service, you can buy the renewable six months’ subscription at R 715.
|1 month||R 163||R 163|
|6 months||R 123||R 715|
|VIP – 1 month||R 408||R 408|
|VIP – 3 months||R 333||R 1021|
If you wish to have a better and more targeted experience on the dating site, then you upgrade to the VIP legacy. It is only available in monthly and three months subscriptions costing R 408 and R 1000 respectively.
💡 How to reduce costs at Mocospace?

You receive credit rewards for every finished level. Recruiting new players will also earn you credits, which you can convert to Moco gold for in-game purchases.
- Friendshop: Ever thought of selling your best friend for profit? Or how much you would earn if you were a commodity? This entertaining game gives you a clue into how that would turn out. At Friendshop, you buy and sell friends or get bought or sold using Friendshop Cash. Your value goes up each time you are sold. If someone purchases a person you own, you get a profit.
- Daily Spin: Here is something for “Spin the Wheel” lovers. We think the daily spin offers an excellent opportunity to win various prizes including the 200 trillion Street Wars cash, 100,000 Gold, additional spins, and much more. Even more, each spin earns you a reward.

📱 User friendliness
If you have used Facebook, you will find both Mocospace mobile app and website site easy to navigate. However, unlike, Facebook, we found out that the posts that appear on the home timeline are from everyone on the platform, which makes it a little jumbled up. Fortunately, you can block some users whose updates you do not want to see.
✉️ Contacting users
All users have unlimited access to other users. Which means you can message any person on the platform. The best place to find likeminded people is in the chat rooms. However, you will have to verify your account before accessing a group chat.
Mocospace provides zero privacy concerning what you do on the site. Somehow, everyone can see it. Therefore, if you wish to take things to a different level, you have to do it outside the platform.
👍 Pros and cons 👎
The main advantage of signing up with Mocospace is the unlimited number of people you could meet on the dating site. It also offers a one-stop place to play games, meet a friend and find a soul mate.
Creating a fake account on Mocospace is easy. Consequently, you are never certain if you are dealing with a real person. It is no surprise that the site continual warns against providing personal information on the site.
We think that the downside of the site is the lack of regulation on the content shared on it. Even though the owners claim to regulate the content, there is still a lot of explicit overtones. Discussions on drugs, sex trafficking, and vulgarity are commonplace in the chat rooms.
Mocospace mobile app
Mocospace has a mobile app for both iPhone and Android users. The apps have a simple, intuitive interface with easy navigation, just like Facebook. The adverts may be annoying, but you can remove them by purchasing a free-ads version. We feel the app serves its purpose and you can do with a few upgrades to improve its responsiveness.
We find Mocospace to be a suitable one-stop solution for social media, gaming, and dating needs. The mobile platform is easy to use, and games are immersive. Besides, you can be whatever you want to be on this site. Similarly, you should expect to find anything on this site, from a life partner to bullish perverts.
