Globe offers subscribers the FIRST and ONLY voice blogging technology in the Philippines

Globe Telecom is first to offer its subscribers the pioneering technology of using mobile phones to update their call circles with their own voice. Staying true to its innovative spirit, Globe officially launched the Globe Voice Blog, a social messaging service that enables its subscribers to easily share updates with friends, family, fans and followers using voice.

Globe partnered with Bubble Motion, a global leader in the development of consumer social communications services for mobile phones, to make the technology available in the country.

Configured like a “voice-based Twitter”, the Globe Voice Blog makes it easy for social media fanatics to connect with each other, with a more personal twist. As simple as making a call, voice bloggers dial **1 for free and start recording their status update. The user can invite followers who will then be notified via SMS and will be prompted to click and listen to the recorded update. To follow another voice blogger, a Globe subscriber can dial ** followed by the phone number of the person they want to follow.

Local celebrities and blogging personalities have joined the bandwagon and became voice bloggers themselves. Musicians such as Jim Paredes (**8812), Yeng Constantino (**8012) and Tutti Caringal (**8003) launched their voice blogs on Globe to stay connected with their fans and followers. Blogging luminaries such as Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet (**8803), Carlos Celdran of Celdrantours (**8811) and Mae Paner of Juana Change (**8810) have also activated their voice blogs. To follow their favorite voice blogger, users can dial their respective user codes at P2.50 per minute. Once subscribed, the users will receive free notifications via text whenever new voice blog updates are available. Users may also listen to featured celebrity bloggers for free by dialing **3000.

Beyond celebrities, the Globe Voice Blog can be of great use to promote products and services, inspiring others, sharing expertise or experiences, easily informing unique groups or those who have common interests.

“We believe voice blogging will bring a new level of emotional energy to social media in the Philippines,” said Rina Azcuna-Siongco, Head of Value Added Services at Globe Telecom. “The authenticity of voice coupled with the Twitter-like ability to follow friends, family and celebrities make Globe Voice Blog a perfect fit for our consumers.”

Thomas Clayton, President and CEO of Bubble Motion added, “We are excited to bring this innovation to the Philippines, given the fanatical enthusiasm Filipinos have for embracing digital technology to socialize and build community. We are very optimistic about this partnership with Globe in building a strong following of voice bloggers.”

Currently enjoyed by over 5 million users in India, Japan and Indonesia, the voice blogging technology is seeing a huge potential in expanding presence in the Philippines, now referred to as Asia’s most socially-engaged country with over 20 million Facebook and Twitter users.
