My World@Mail.Ru (Russian: Мой мир@Mail.Ru) is a social network which is a part of Mail.ru portal.

My World is a third most populated Russian social network, after VK.com and Odnoklassniki.[1][2] All three networks belong to Mail.ru Group.[3]

History[edit]

Beta testing of My World began in May, 2007. Initially the site was intended for creating one interface for other Mail.ru portal services (initially – Blogi@Mail.ru, Video@Mail.ru, Photo@Mail.Ru and Otveti@Mail.ru).[4][5] Service’s release from beta was announced by CEO of Mail.ru Dmitry Grishin via personal messages to social network users. After the release My World introduced search of classmates, course mates, colleagues and soul mates by filling relevant fields in user profile.[6]

In 2007 social network introduced mobile version,[7] in 2008 instant messaging and music playback was presented.[8]

In 2010 My World released microblogs and in 2011 social network added like button and commenting for other user’s news.[7]

My World's design was cardinally revised in 2012.[8]

In 2015 My World changed its positioning: instead of mates search portal, social network acquired new image as a service that provides communication for people with similar interest. Social network revised three main content columns: music, video and games. In 2015 site re-launched its music service.[9]

Functionality[edit]

My World unites blogging service and video/photo storage functionality. Instant messaging service is provided by web version of Mail.Ru Agent.[10]

Integration with other Mail.Ru services[edit]

Data of My World is used by other services of Mail.ru. In 2008 users of social network received a new function: creating job CVs in Rabota@Mail.Ru site via utilizing filled profile of My World.[11] Go@Mail.Ru suggests My World user accounts while providing search results. Up to 2010 search engine results included only the profiles of Mail.ru social network. Later the service was disabled, and in 2013 profiles of other popular services were added to search results.[12] Since 2011, activity of social network user influences his personified search results.[13]

After acquisition of Odnoklassniki by Mail.Ru Group, both services profiles can be linked.[14]

In 2014, Mail.ru organized My World-based online cinema with movies available for a certain amount of time. In order to realize this project company received settlements from copyright owners by itself.[18] Moreover, social network launched theme channels that unified archived series or music videos.[19]

Applications[edit]

After releasing API for third party developers in 2010, My Workd focused on social network application growth (especially games). Statistics of that same year showed that around 40% of social network users play video games. In 2012, the amount of game installations to users’ pages reached 280 millions.[20] Games remain the main source of income for My World.[21]

If social network teams considers game promising, developers can count for ad support.[22] Moreover, Mail.ru doesn’t require commission from ingame purchases.[23] As a means of social network payment, Money@Mail.Ru is utilized.[24]
