Vodafone has bought social networking and online management service ZYB for £25m. The service is targeted at mobile users and allows users to back-up and share their contact and calendar data. The service also allows PC-mobile communication using SMS, pictures and IM.
Vodafone’s purchase follows its revelation that the top two searches on its mobile internet service are for social networking sites Facebook and Bebo. Facebook has also become the site most visited by Vodafone users. Vodafone subscribers are increasingly using their phones for e-mail, IM and social networking. Vodafone has recently changed its monthly price plans to include 500MB/month free internet access – a £7.50 saving.
