SoLoMo is short form of Social-Local-Mobile. It represents the growing trend of targeting consumers based on their current location and is typically designed to be shared via social networks.Now the question is how?For this we have to go into the details of each components of SoLoMo, which are Social, Local and Mobile.
So, the first one is Social.Social refers to the interaction of people with other people and to their surroundings, irrespective of whether they are aware of it or not, and irrespective of whether the interaction is voluntary or involuntary.Now how these interactions happens.Earlier yellow pages, magazines and newspapers were responsible for these interactions but with the rise of technology and Social Media a whole new era of social interactions came to existence.

What is Oauth (Open
OAuth (Open Authentication) is a system which grants
third-party websites limited access into user accounts for
example your Twitter or Facebook accounts. It lets
visitors interact within the site without requiring new
account registration or releasing your username and
password to third parties
Why to use OAuth?
If you consider how much more connected the Internet has
become, it only makes sense that users will want to share
information between multiple accounts from Facebook into
Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, and now even into mobile
apps such as Path or Instagram.
The problem we face now is how to accomplish this in the
most secure and simplest way possible. OAuth is an
attempt to solve this problem.
How OAuth works?
There are 3 parties to consider in a standard OAuth call:
Service Provider – The main network you are trying to
pull data from. They provide the API response such as
your username, profile picture, website URL, and other
Consumer – The 3rd party app looking to receive data.
This would be the website or mobile app which makes
the initial connection request, then also handles the
return data after authorization.
User – The person sitting behind the computer
interacting with the websites which would be you!
The purpose of OAuth isn’t to provide a specific library for
websites to use. It actually sets up the “rules” for building
an open protocol API.
