Orange provides portal to three social networks through ‘Social Life’


Orange has launched a service that brings together Facebook, MySpace and Bebo in one central place on consumers’ phones.

The service, called ‘Social Life’, is accessible from Orange’s internet portal, Orange World, and allows customers to view and post updates across all three social networks simultaneously through one log in.

The Social Life Home screen will allow users to upload photos, update their status, send and receive messages and view friends’ updates across all the three networks.

Customers will have full control over which information they provide to each of their social networks and can update their status and upload photos to some or all of them through the Social Life home screen.

The service also allows customers to receive text alerts with updates from the social networks. It will look to incorporate more social networks and Web 2.0 sites in 2009. 

Meanwhile, the network has also launched ‘Orange Widget Player’ –a customisable interface which provides fast access to useful content and favourite applications.

Orange UK head of product management, Mark Watts-Jones, said: ‘With Social Life and Widget Player we’re making it simple for customers to manage their favourite content, applications and social networks at the touch of a button.

‘Over time we will be looking to add more sites to the service - helping users to stay in touch in touch with the people and content that matters most to them.’
