Anytime, Anywhere Connectivity with Emoze and Facebook

By Anita B. December 01, 2008
Keeping in touch just got easier, thanks to a new mobile technology developed by Emoze, a free mobile e-mail service. Emoze, a spin-off of the Emblaze Group in 2006, now allows Symbian users to add their Facebook messaging in combination with any number of email messaging systems to their favorite mobile device. The company said Java and Windows Mobile users will also have the privilege within the next few days. 
Facebook is the fourth most-trafficked Web site in the world and the most trafficked social media site on the Web. Facebook has built a 120 million strong community worldwide and Emoze will provide its users anytime access to this popular networking Web site. As a spin-off of Emblaze in 2006, Emoze has users in almost every country worldwide.
This is great news for those who don’t want to invest in a sophisticated phone to tap into Facebook when on the move. All they need to do is add Facebook to their Emoze portfolio on any handset, no browser required. Emoze has a large playing field with 7.3 million people already accessing the Internet via their mobile phones during the second and third quarter of 2008, a recent Nielsen online survey revealed.
People are increasingly feeling the need to stay connected everywhere – whether it is with friends, family, peers or business contacts and social media and networking sites are the perfect platform to ensure this happens.
"Facebook is a prime example of how social networking is changing the world and our users will not miss a trick! We want everyone in the mass market to be able to enjoy the benefits of social networking when and where they choose," said Eitan Linker, Emoze CEO.
"Even at this nascent stage of the market, 19 percent of adult consumers who access social networks on their PCs also regularly accessing these same sites from their mobile phones," said Jill Aldort, senior analyst at Yankee Group.
Facebook is only the first of many social media sites that will soon be available to Emoze users. To ensure security, Emoze does not store the data transmitted via its service en-route to the user. It uses a ‘push’ mechanism where messages are sent and received when the mobile device is ready to receive the transmission. It is available through the Download! folder of all new Nokia Nseries mobile phones.
Back in September, Emoze announced the launch of Version 2.0 of its next generation of mobile push email software. This new functionality enables users to configure multiple mobile email accounts with optimized battery performance and an improved user experience.
