3 integrates Bebo in Ireland
30 Mar 2009
The operator increases its reach with social networking services
3 in Ireland just launched the Bebo Open Mobile Messaging, Internet and Video, which will allow users to connect to their Bebo friends and watch Bebo videos, and basically do a whole of Bebo-based social networking.
The service includes a 3 version of the Bebo mobile site with 3 navigation and support for direct promos, while Mobile Messaging will offer customers a short code to directly upload photos, update profiles and interact with Bebo contacts. And Open Mobile Video provides free video from Bebo for the mobile.
In the UK, 3 is already the exclusive carrier of the Skypephone S2 (and its predecessor, the Skypephone) which has been helping the operator gain its reputation as the network with the best social networking options.
