Shozu Adds Ovi Plus More

by Darla Mack


Shozu fans will be happy to know that Ovi has recently been added to the increasing list of providers.  YAY!!!

Along with 8 other newly added providers Shozu now has a list of 46 web 2.0 properties. 

via Press Release:

SAN FRANCISCO (June 24, 2008) – ShoZu Inc. today connected users of its mobile social media services to nine additional online communities, including photo printing and storage site Snapfish, personal media storing and sharing on Ovi by Nokia, and mobile photo sharing service SnapMyLife. ShoZu users can now upload images to and exchange content with a total of 46 Web 2.0 properties from a single screen on their mobile device for fast and easy mobile social networking - including the ability to mass-publish any photo or video to multiple sites and/or email addresses simultaneously from the handset.

Other destination options added in ShoZu’s latest round of integrations include AOL’s new BlueString media sharing and Xdrive file storage sites; photo/video sharing communities DivShare and Smugmug; web creation and hosting site Free Webs; and citizen journalism site Reuters You Witness News.

The additions mark ShoZu’s third major expansion in seven weeks. In May, ShoZu added support for Twitter, Photobucket, Dailymotion, Friendster and five other community sites. Earlier this month, the company upgraded its Facebook services to enable Facebook status updates from ShoZu as well as delivery of new Facebook photos, event listings and other friends’ posts directly to the phone.

ShoZu also supports communities ranging from YouTube, Flickr, Google Picasa, Kodak Easy Share Gallery and Webshots to personal blogging sites and news desks such as Google Blogger, LiveJournal, Textamerica, TypePad, Vox, WordPress, MetaWeblog, CNN, the BBC and Scoopt.

“Two months ago, mobile users could interact with 29 online communities through the ShoZu gateway. Now we support 46 sites, and we continue to expand the menu of supported destinations so that users can stay in constant contact with their preferred social networks without navigating from site to site on the mobile Web,” said ShoZu CEO Mark Bole. “If you patronize more than one social media site – and the majority of users now do - ShoZu is simply the fastest way to stay in touch when you’re on the go.”

ShoZu’s service extends today’s burgeoning social media movement from the Web to the mobile world where users spend the majority of their time. Users can send photos or videos to their favorite community - or transfer any image file to multiple communities and/or email addresses simultaneously - without opening a mobile browser, creating multiple messages, or paying multiple data upload fees from their wireless carrier.

ShoZu users can also have friends’ photostreams, status changes and social network invites sent directly to the handset in the background without mobile navigation or download downtime; send photos at blog quality or full resolution; upload video clips up to 10 minutes in length; and exchange two-way commenting and messages between the mobile and Web.

ShoZu’s free mobile client is currently pre-installed on newer Motorola and Samsung phones and downloadable to nearly 340 additional handset models. A complete list of compatible phones at the “Get ShoZu” button on the ShoZu home page (www.shozu.com).
