SAN FRANCISCO—Verizon Wireless wants to make it easier for its social networking customers. Today, it announced 1-stop access to multiple sites through SocialLife.
Using technology from Intercasting, SocialLife brings together various social networking sites, including MySpace, in one application. Other sites include AsianAve, BlackPlanet, Faith Base, GLEE, LiveJournal, MiGente, Photobucket, Rabble and MTV Tr3s.
The application integrates the camera on a customer’s wireless phone as well, so pictures can be taken within the application and uploaded with one click to a community site. Photos also can be shared with friends in the phone’s address book.
SocialLife can be found in the Community section of Get It Now-enabled phones or under the Browse & Download section of the Media Center on some handsets. The application is available for $1.49 monthly access. Without an unlimited data feature, airtime or megabyte charges may apply, depending on the customer’s plan.
