If you haven’t heard the great news, Bebo announced today the launch of its Open Media Platform for its 40 million registered users. Ustream.TV is one of these launch partners and we are in great company with companies like MTV, CBS, and Jibjab.
â€œUstream.TV provides a new capability for Bebo members and enables powerful, real-time, interactive content in their profiles,â€ Joanna Shields, President of Bebo. â€œAs live video becomes an important feature of social networking, the potential will be unlimited, from musicians sharing music with fans to professors broadcasting lectures for distanced learning.â€
â€œBebo provides content creators, whether individuals, groups, or large organizations, with a means to reach targeted audiences through live video,â€ said Brad Hunstable, president and co-founder, Ustream.TV. â€œBebo represents a significant new distribution channel for Ustream content, and we believe the synergies between our two platforms will redefine social networking as a fully realized, live, interactive communications medium.â€
We continue to grow like wild fire (I’m from Texas people!) and we are honored to be in such great company. Many big announcements in the future for Ustream and our first major product release will occur very soon. shhh… stay tuned!
Recently, we announced that we integrated our Microbroadcasting platform into Meebo.com.
