ShoZu Adds Eight New Destinations to Mobile Social Media Service

Expanded Its Mobile Service to Photobucket, Dailymotion, Friendster, Twitter and Four Additional Web and Mobile 2.0 Communities

ShoZu announced that it has expanded its mobile social media service to Photobucket, Dailymotion, Friendster, Twitter and four additional Web 2.0 and Mobile 2.0 communities. With these eight new integrations, ShoZu now enables mobile users to interact with their choice of 36 social networks from a single screen on their handsets — reducing the time, effort and money required to upload images, update social profiles and check friends’ latest posts from the phone.
“People today often belong to more than one online social media site including social networking sites, personal blogs and media storage and sharing sites. In addition, different social media sites are popular in different parts of the world,” said Mark Bole, ShoZu CEO. “Our goal is to provide mobile access to the broadest possible range of communities from the ShoZu service so that users need only one tool to stay connected on the go. This latest batch of additional sites to our service gives users more choice than ever before. Also, be on the look out for another batch of new destinations added in the upcoming weeks.”
ShoZu’s newly expanded menu of communities enables mobile users to:

  • Upload images to Photobucket
  • Upload videos to Dailymotion
  • Upload photos as well as change their social status on Friendster
  • Sign up to the latest friend and personal ‘tweet’ timelines and post replies from Twitter

In addition, ShoZu now supports uploads to photo sharing site Twitpic; photo and video sharing community Cellfish; interactive personal video ‘dashboard’ Seesmic; and online storage site Ipernity.
Other ShoZu-supported sites include Facebook; photo/video communities YouTube, Flickr, Google Picasa, Buzznet, Hyves Kodak EasyShare Gallery, Webshots, Windows Live Spaces, Moblog.uk, Dada.net, Pikeo, Netlog Samsung Fun Club, HotSMS and blip.tv; personal blogging sites Google Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, Vox, WordPress and MetaWeblog; online storage site Box.net and Qipit; citizen-contributed news desks at CNN, the BBC, ITV and Scoopt; and any email and FTP addresses — all from one ShoZu interface.  
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 with a click, or mass-publish any photo or video to multiple communities and/or email addresses simultaneously, without opening a mobile browser, creating for multiple messages, and paying multiple data upload fees from their wireless carrier.  
Other features unique to ShoZu include the ability to 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.
