STAINES, U.K. -- Yospace, the mobile technology solutions provider, is harnessing the popularity of blogging to increase ARPU for telecom operators.

Using the Yospace module, telecom operators can provide their customers with the ability to blog from their mobile phones. This means they can update websites instantaneously with images and videos, containing short musings about their day-to-day or even minute-by-minute experiences, via MMS from their handsets. These websites then become personal online diaries that can be viewed and commented on by a select community of web users. This is transforming blogging from a ‘geeky’ desk-based activity into a dynamic pastime for anyone with a mobile phone.

This is just one of the services that Yospace is launching. Others include the ability to create promotional websites where mobile phone users submit picture or video messages to compete in competitions; the ability to let customers send pictures captured on their phone as post cards to a postal address for next day delivery; and an MMS-to-email ‘gateway’ that allows users to send MMS messages to email addresses in the form of operator-branded HTML emails, and also to receive replies from the email recipient.

The services utilise Yospace’s unique Media Community Platform (MCP), the first fully featured media libraries and applications platforms designed for MMS community-building applications. £2.5 million was invested to develop the mobile blogging services and the MCP.

“MMS has yet to reach its full potential,” said David Springall, CTO and founder of Yospace. “Users need a compelling reason to start sending MMS and blogging is this year’s new media phenomenon. By fusing the two, we have created what we think will be the next major communication revolution. We’ve seen mobile phones, email, instant messenger and blogging. Now it’s time to say hello to mobile blogging.”
