Mumbai (PRWEB) June 30, 2011
Singapore | Today Bubble Motion, in partnership with Indian mobile operator Reliance Communications, is announcing its BubbleBlog service has reached a new milestone in India as it surpasses 1 million users on Reliance’s network alone. Indian users have embraced BubbleBlog since it launched on Reliance Communication’s network, highlighting the increasing importance of social communications in the day-to-day lives of Indians.
Sometimes described as a ‘voice-based Twitter’, the BubbleBlog social messaging service enables celebrities and everyday people to share status updates in their own voice with fans and followers through any mobile phone. BubbleBlog now boasts over 10 million users across four countries, including India, Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines. The service is now available across India on Reliance Communication’s CDMA, GSM and 3G networks.
An array of India’s hottest celebrities are participating in the service, including leading Bollywood stars, cricketers, and entertainers who share status updates in their own voice. Popular celebrities using the service include Amitabh Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra, Yuvraj Singh, R. Madhavan, John Abraham, Radhika Pandit, Ravi Kishan and many more.
Reliance Communications has also made it easier than ever to follow your favourite personalities on BubbleBlog with easy-to-access short codes for each celebrity. BubbleBlog and Reliance are also adding new social features to the service, including: enabling listeners to reply with their own messages, allowing them to vote that they “like” what they hear, and allowing them to forward SMS notifications to their friends to share updates. The service is handset-agnostic and does not require any special applications to operate as it is embedded into the carrier’s services.
“Through their Reliance phone, fans can now come closer than ever to India’s top stars,” said Thomas Clayton, CEO of Bubble Motion. “There’s nothing more exciting than hearing the inside scoop with status updates from these stars on your phone, recorded in their own voice. As a fan, I can hear updates, and even reply and share them with my friends.”
