BeBeMe(R) Launches New Social Networking Services for the Net Generation NEW YORK, September 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Riding on the growing popularity of instant messaging, http://www.bebeme.com is a new website offering users a wide portfolio of social networking services and customization options for BlackBerry(R) smartphones. One of the most compelling features available to BlackBerry(R) users is the free BlackBerry(R) instant messenger service, using PIN-to-PIN connections. At launch, http://www.bebeme.com opens up a world of opportunities by customizing the user experience and managing social networks. By simply downloading free BeBeMe software, users can customize the device PIN or email and create unique corporate, memorable, personal or fun aliases to mask their original ID and conveniently share among their peers. The BeBeMe alias ensures that users maintain their networks and contacts should their BlackBerry(R) be lost, broken or upgraded. A PIN is specific to each BlackBerry(R) device, a BeBeMe alias is for life. BeBeMe members can also add each other to their existing BlackBerry(R) Messenger network via PIN or email request and benefit from the website's many social networking services, which will include a customized webpage, global address book, RSS content, and posting and blogging capabilities for managing discussions. Among the website's many contact management features, upon becoming a member users can set-up their profile page which includes a photo for the web and BlackBerry(R), contact information, profile text box for member information, privacy functions for the user to select who can view their data, and a search facility for other members. Users can also add members to their BeBeMe contact list and conveniently arrange them into groups. John Burnett, chief corporate officer, BeBeMe, Inc., said: "BeBeMe helps users get an even richer experience from BlackBerry(R) instant messaging, offering a wide range of social networking services with a global reach. It expands the capabilities and connectivity of the BlackBerry(R) Messenger service and it's free. It's instant. It's fun. And it has no boundaries. We are proud to be the first to offer such comprehensive and unique services." Faran Siddiqi, a BeBeMe member said: "The use of PIN-to-PIN communications is easy to use, but it lacks the ability for me to personalize my device access number. This is where BeBeMe helps by creating a convenient, memorable PIN alias - perfect for sharing. http://www.BeBeMe.com is also the place where BBM communities can stay connected. My friends and family know my alias, and even business contacts appreciate the convenience. With a network spanning the Middle East, USA, and other places I frequently travel, staying connected has never been easier." Basic membership at http://www.bebeme.com is free with the option to upgrade to premium services. Members can keep their alias for as long as they want it, confident in the knowledge that it is one of a kind.
