Call Anyone, Anywhere, Now, Directly from a Tagged Home Page; Netvibes Customers Can Now Add Jangl to Personal Home Pages, Too
PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jangl, Inc., the company connecting millions of online profiles and mobile phones, safely and privately, today announced a significant expansion in the relationship between Jangl and Tagged.com, one of the world's most popular social networking sites. The relationship now puts Jangl onto the home page of millions of Tagged users who recently received a new personal home page powered by Netvibes.
“Jangl is the leader in bridging the phone and the web because we do it in the context of the social networks people already inhabit, not by re-directing people to 'catch-all' destinations with cumbersome registrations and limited widget galleries”
Jangl is the first partner application to be included on Tagged members’ new home pages.
Tagged.com members can now take advantage of Jangl’s top features and:
More broadly, any consumer using Netvibes personal home pages can now add Jangl to their homepage by simply selecting the Jangl module from the application gallery.
“The demand for voice services that protect real phone numbers while connecting online personas comes from a young, savvy and huge online demographic that live in their social network profiles, trade in online content, and inherently seek new connections," said Michael Cerda, CEO and co-founder, Jangl, Inc. "With Tagged, we’re adding another massive, captive audience to Jangl’s global map of social network voice coverage.”
Jangl is now available in more than 20 million profiles across a variety of social networking destinations.
“Jangl is the leader in bridging the phone and the web because we do it in the context of the social networks people already inhabit, not by re-directing people to 'catch-all' destinations with cumbersome registrations and limited widget galleries,” said Cerda. “Context and real utility separate Jangl from others in our space.”
“Tagged has seen firsthand the interest our members have in bringing together their phones and their Tagged lives,” said Greg Tseng, CEO and co-founder, Tagged Inc. "More than ninety percent of our members have mobile phones, and users welcome the opportunity to talk with one another without leaving the Tagged experience. With the enthusiasm we’ve seen for Jangl, it makes sense to integrate this service into the new personal home pages for Tagged members. That's why we made it a top priority.”
The new Tagged service represents another in a string of recent Jangl successes. In July, Jangl revealed that its service crossed the 20 million online profiles milestone, and unveiled its latest partners, including Various, Inc., publisher of the FriendFinder network; lifecasting media site Justin.tv; and fast-growing social network fubar.
Jangl will soon announce more new relationships, including one of the world's top online dating sites and another massive social network.
