Social Networks Gain 'Voice' Through SpinVox



    
    Voice-to-Screen Leader Enables Voice-Driven Posts to Facebook, Jaiku and
    Twitter
    

    ATLANTA and LONDON, Nov. 14 /CNW/ -- The power of social networking and
microblogging increased significantly today with the announcement from SpinVox
(http://www.spinvox.com), the global leader in Voice-to-Screen messaging, that
posting on Facebook, Jaiku and Twitter can be now achieved simply by using
your voice. 'Social Networks through SpinVox' enables voice- driven social
networking from any mobile phone.

    Social Networks through SpinVox' is launched today as a key element of
the new, state-of-the-art SpinVox website. People can create an account on
www.spinvox.com, where they can manage one, two or all three of their
networking sites from one, personalised page. In addition, accounts can be set
up so that one voice-powered contribution can be posted automatically to all
three networking sites. SpinVox expects to extend this capability to other
well-known social networking and micro-blogging sites in the coming months.
    
    No need to wait for web access or use a keyboard
    
    Now bloggers can generate posts by simply speaking into any mobile
handset. Social Networks through SpinVox then automatically creates text and
then posts directly to their chosen sites. People can now contribute to
Facebook, Jaiku or Twitter wherever they are - no need to send an SMS, try to
log on to the web from a mobile or wait until they get home and are online. If
a user wants to share something immediately with their online community - an
urgent piece of news, a review of a great film or their latest holiday
adventure - they can. Bloggers are no longer off-line just because they're out
and about. It can all be done through a simple phone call.
    
    Capture your thoughts, emotions and experiences 'in the moment'
    
    "SpinVox is all about using voice to enable person-to-person messaging
through any network or service - whether by SMS text, email, blog, or social
network walls and spaces," said Christina Domecq, CEO and co-founder of
SpinVox.
    "The use of social networks and micro-blogging sites has exploded in the
past few years, but, so far, they've lacked true mobility and so are not
achieving their full potential. Whether you've just walked out of a concert or
have discovered a great new place to eat, your voice can now be used in place
of the keyboard to tell the world the news and capture your thoughts, emotions
and experiences 'in the moment' as and when they happen."
    
    Builds on the lead of Spin-my-Blog
    
    In February 2007 SpinVox enabled voice to enter the blogosphere for the
first time with its ground-breaking service, Spin-my-Blog(TM). The service was
the first to allow users to post their thoughts onto a blog by calling a phone
number and speaking the message, which is then converted automatically to text
and posted on the site.
    "The launch of the Social Networks Through SpinVox service is a further
groundbreaking development for Web 2.0, which is largely characterised by the
power it gives users to generate and share their own content," added Domecq.
"SpinVox is a natural interface between online and mobile worlds - and is
already in use by LiveJournal users in the blogosphere - enabling the power of
Web 2.0 communities to go truly mobile."
