Pheed was a patented mobile pay per view technology and social networking service that competed with Facebook, Twitter, and related sites. Founded by Internet entrepreneur OD Kobo and launched in November of 2012, Pheed was aimed at a younger audience than Facebook's demographic. Pheed combined text, video, images and audio, and included a live broadcast option. Pheed provided a pay-per-view option, covering both individual elements (such as a video or audio event), or subscriptions to a full feed that can be scheduled for a specific time or day with a specific cost, and mobile applications through the Apple App Store and Google Play. The Pheeds could also be shared by Twitter, Facebook, and Gmail, and could be copyrighted, making them the user's property. They could also be kept on the user's wall without any other users seeing it. A user's friends could be invited through Facebook, Twitter, or Gmail.

Pheed was sold to Mobli Media Group, a company majority owned by Carlos Slim HelĂș, in March of 2014 for $40,000,000.

On April 11, 2016, Pheed the social network was shut down and the technology integrated to American Movil platforms.
