Stockholm -- Ericsson announced the launch of an innovative social networking portfolio for mobile network operators, the Pixl8r initiative and the Social Media Portal. The technologies together offer simplified sharing of user-generated content between friends across diverse networks.

The Pixl8r initiative is an open-standard solution that allows photo sharing sites to interact in real time. With Pixl8r, mobile subscribers can easily share social media across different operator portals and receive SMS notification of friends' activities regardless of network. Pixl8r creates a federation of community portals that can connect the world's about four billion mobile users.

With Ericsson's Social Media Portal, operators can deliver a Pixl8r-compatible social networking service quickly and cost effectively. Consumers can easily connect to the social web using any mobile phone. The solution does not require client downloads, making it easy to use, and encourages posting and accessing of real-time, user-generated content to diverse internet communities. Content is automatically backed up on a community portal that offers personal storage, synchronization, unified messaging and services for sharing content such as photos and videos with friends and family.

Laurence McDonald, Vice President, Consumer and Business Applications, Ericsson, says: "The social web is a dynamic, continuously evolving ecosystem that offers exciting new revenue opportunities for operators. Ericsson can deliver the tools to allow community services to be delivered under operator brands that work together with the leading web communities."

The Social Media Portal gives operators the required tools to become part of the social web. The white-labeled portal solution offers significant opportunities for advertising revenues from both mobile and fixed portals, reduces churn and improves brand positioning. It increases data traffic such as MMS, video calling and web portal traffic.
