Orange social networking service

July 11, 2008

Mobile operator Orange is preparing to launch a major push for mobile social networking in the UK with a service which aggregates users’ accounts across the major social networks.Launched as a trial in France last month under the name MySocialPlace, Orange has now partnered with the biggest social networks – Facebook, MySpace and Bebo – to introduce the service in the UK this autumn under the Orange World branded website.UK users will also be able to access the chat service Flirtomatic and the photo-sharing site Pikeo, while Orange customers in France can use the Skyrock community, DailyMotion video site and dating service Meetic. Users set up their login details to the sites once and MySocialPlace aggregates messages from friends and newsfeed alerts with photo uploads, messaging and status updates.
