Social network Bebo launched Bebo Open Mobile, a new global partnership program which offers operators, handset manufacturers and mobile software developers a suite of tools to provide their customers/clients access to the Bebo social networking experience.
Bebo Open Mobile packages the company’s mobile services into a single integrated program for mobile industry partners. It offers members the tools to deliver the Bebo mobile social networking experience over mobile networks:
- Bebo Open Mobile Internet – ability to rapidly deploy features on the Bebo mobile site including customized navigation, mobile advertising support and enhanced statistics.
- Bebo Open Mobile Messaging – provides scalable and feature rich two-way messaging through the messaging interfaces most used by Bebo members.
- Bebo Open Mobile Development API – designed to empower Bebo Open Mobile partners to create innovative applications, widgets and other interfaces to directly serve the Bebo community.
But Bebo won’t spot there. We should expect to see further announcements regarding Bebo Open Mobile partners and initiatives throughout 2009.
