Idea generation #53: Social Q&A services on your phone

I found this fascinating quote today:

The reason I am blogging about this, other than to get all of you to go download the app, is because Live Poker is the first first application to leverage Facebook Connect to allow iPhone users to play with their real friends and access social information such as real player photos. Just think about that for a second. We've now got apps on open mobile phones connecting with apps on open social nets. It's only a matter of time until we see more of these live mobile apps running on iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian, and connecting to Facebook, MySpace, and other social nets.A VC, Nov 2008

The ability to tap on your social graph with your mobile has immense potential. One area is taking the concept of Aardvark and applying to the mobile phone. Aardvark is Yahoo answer + twitter. It analyzes the question you post and distributes them to your social graph according to who is in the best position to answer it.

Applying Aardvark to mobile makes a lot of sense. Very often, you need answers when you are NOT at your desk. Your phone is your best bet to get a quick answer. If you can leverage off your social graph to get the answer, even better. The app shoud be able to not only assess who has the best domain knowledge to answer your question, but who is currently as well. Hence integration with status information is also important.

I think integration your social graph into mobile apps is worth more thinking about. What are your thoughts.
