Yahoo! Koprol gets friendly with Blackberry
Indonesia - Location-based social networking site Yahoo! Koprol has integrated the latest version of Blackberry Messenger 6 to offer users a seamless online experience.
The integration of these platforms will provide Indonesians a social experience across multiple platforms and the flexibility of connecting with their contacts via mobile social networks.
This is part of its strategy to allow users to view and follow other users who are nearby and instantly be able to initiate a chat with them.
"Mobile internet adoption and social networking in Indonesia is growing at a remarkable pace," Pontus Sonnerstedt, country manager of Yahoo! Indonesia, said.
"While most social networks keep you in front of the computer, Yahoo! Koprol goes with you and is part of the user experience in finding friends in real life," Satya Witoelar (pictured), co-founder of Yahoo! Koprol, said.
Witoelar added that the integration enables easy check-ins, find other Koprollers profile information, consolidate content on popular topics and local social events.
