CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobio Networks today
announced its new Friends of Mobio (FOM) program that allows anyone, from
die-hard phone aficionados to the casual caller, to earn points and prizes
just for being one of Mobio's friends. Best of all, members of the FOM
community are always the first to know when early versions of its mobile
lifestyle applications are ready for a test drive.
FOM officially kicked off yesterday at an "in-world" press conference
in Second Life, the popular 3D online world that boasts nearly two million
residents globally. The conference was moderated by Mobio VP of Marketing
Marcia Kadanoff and hosted by SDForum's Innovation Island.
"The Friends of Mobio program is our way of letting you check out the
latest mobile applications tailored to your lifestyle," said Kadanoff.
"Mobio Friends also earn points that translate into gifts, such as a
collector's edition t-shirt from Threadless.com."
Becoming a Friend of Mobio has its perks. When you earn 20 points
through the FOM program, you can snag a Threadless t-shirt, up to 5,000
Linden dollars to spend in Second Life, or simply turn your points into a
$20 donation for your favorite charity through the Network for Good.
If you qualify* you'll earn 10 points just for downloading your first
mobile application. From there you will accumulate additional points each
time you refer a friend to Mobio or by sticking a Mobio tag on your
website, page or blog.
For the over 100 million MySpace addicts, then www.myspace.com/getmobio
is the place to add Mobio as a friend and to get the latest news on hot new
mobile applications, such as Mobile Movie Times. Last month, Mobio
announced the availability of Mobile Movie Times, the first mobile
application that enables moviegoers to find a movie and buy tickets on
their handsets in three clicks or less.
