[USPRwire, Wed Oct 29 2008] Next2Friends™ (www.next2friends.com), the mobile social media platform, today announces the availability of its innovative ‘Live’ mobile video broadcasting application and ‘Social’ Suite along with their interactive on-line community will be provided on a white label managed service offering. Next2Friends now brings their suite of real-time solutions to empower other social and niche communities along with the next generation of corporate intranets.
Next2Friends ongoing commitment to vastly broadening the set of people who have access to their world class tools, is fuelled by the huge demand for their services following thier I-Stage Consumer Electronics Association nomination as one of the top new innovative products in 2008, along with being the world’s first vendor to enable BlackBerry Users to broadcast video from their devices in real-time.
“Driving a residual business model which is not solely ad revenue dependant is vital in building a business with a substantial competitive advantage,” commented Roy Shelton, CEO of Next2Friends. Shelton went on to comment “by empowering other niche social communities our technology becomes more accessible to common interest groups which we could not penetrate and will now be built for their individual needs and then run by the community operators, who understand their own unique set of requirements. The benefits to the communities are a lower cost of entry, quicker time to market and a more predictable cost of ownership, which allows the operators to focus on their core business”
Whatever your focus, Next2Friends can empower your social media and networking vision by providing completely white labelled or jointly branded applications and environments to meet your requirements. From large scale communities to small common interest groups, we can enable real-time collaboration from the mobile device and online.

Nystrom also stated “Not only are we providing a way to enable other niche social communities, we are also taking away the whole headache of system availability, support and maintenance. Our solutions are delivered as a complete outsourced managed service, leaving you free to focus on growing your member base and driving value to your communities, safe in the knowledge that the systems is scaleable, robust and secure.
