Bubbly Launches Voice-Based Social Network in the United Kingdom, With Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand Providing Exclusive Audio Content
SINGAPORE, Jan 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Today, Bubbly, the leading voice blogging service with over 20
million devoted fans across the world, is launching across the United
Kingdom with all-new celebrities, including football superstar Rio
Ferdinand. Bubbly allows users to share short voice updates, or
"Bubbles" with friends and followers, while applying fun filters to
their recordings. Along with the service's UK rollout, Rio
Ferdinand's exclusive content will be available for users of the
smartphone app globally, and feature phone users in select countries.

As an early subscriber to the service, Ferdinand uses Bubbly to
update his fans on his daily adventures, locker room pranks, and his
pre- and post-game thoughts. Bubbly allows celebrities like Ferdinand
to authentically represent themselves, using their own voice. On
other social media sites, it's common for communications managers to
take over a celebrity's account, which removes the personal touch
that Bubbly users value. People can follow the voices of celebrities,
sports stars, and other well-known users on Bubbly in a special way,
as if listening to a close friend leaving a voicemail.
"I love showing support for my fans, and Bubbly lets me connect with
them in a way that I've never been able to before," says Man U's
Ferdinand. "Voice updates bring a fresh way for me to have a dialogue
with my fans and I've been having a lot of fun posting recordings."
"We're excited to bring such a fun and useful way of communicating
with friends, family, and followers to Europe for the very first
time. Having popular celebrities like Rio Ferdinand joining the
service early on is great, because users will get to experience the
Bubbly difference in the celebrity/fan connection right off the bat,"
says Thomas Clayton, CEO of Bubble Motion.
Bubbly recently launched a new version of its iOS app, which allows
users to spice up their voice posts by applying cool filters like
"Helium," "Echo Chamber," and "Synth." Users simply record their
message on their iPhone, choose a filter to revamp the sound and
vibe, and post to their account to share with friends, fans, and
followers. The newest version of Bubbly includes a selection of
effects, including "Applause" and "Laughing."
The Bubbly app can be downloaded for Android in the Google Play app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details id=com.bubblemotion, and
the newest version, Bubbly 2.4 for iPhone in the Apple App Store
