On the heels of Open Social by Google, Bebo is apparently taking a different approach by launching their own Open Media platform. This was announced this morning it what is seemingly a big event.
New York & London (PRWEB) November 13, 2007 — Bebo, the global social network, today unveiled Open Media, a radical new vision for social media and entertainment that gives media companies free and open access to Bebo’s 40 million users worldwide and the Bebo community free and open access to thousands of hours of premium entertainment content from some of the world’s best known media brands.
Launch partners include CBS, MTV Networks, ESPN, the BBC, Channel Four, ITN, Yahoo! and BSkyB, as well as emerging media companies like Music Nation, Next New Networks, Crackle, Ustream, Last.fm and JibJab.
Launched at simultaneous events in New York and London, Bebo’s Open Media ushers in a new, legitimate way for people to explore and experience content on the Internet, and the way media owners promote, distribute and monetize their programming.
