Yahoo Acquires Indonesian Mobile Social Network Koprol

PcMag: Yahoo on Tuesday acquired, an mobile social network based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Koprol allows users to connect and share photos, reviews, and other location-related information from their mobile browsers, Yahoo said. Like Foursquare, Koprol has a "check-in" component that lets people share their location with friends. It also has a Yelp-esque "thumbs-up" ratings feature that lets users vote up certain shops or restaurants, and start discussions about particular locations.
