Bebo Says Kane is Able

Social media network Bebo has appointed Sean Kane as Global Head of Mobile. In his new role, Kane will head the development of relevant and compelling mobile experiences for Bebos 45 million plus users worldwide. Kane joins Bebo from mobile social networking platform provider Intercasting Corporation. Prior to this, he served as Senior Vice President, Business Development for Vivendi Universal Net.
Mobile is emerging as a core part of the Bebo experience, says Kane. By driving availability and adding compelling and unique mobile experiences, we hope to make using Bebo Mobile as natural for our global user-base as connecting on a personal computer. We will ensure that our members can connect and enjoy the content, media and community Bebo has to offer in a mobile-relevant way.
In recent months, Bebo has partnered with mobile operators to introduce programs to engage and entertain users wherever they are. In February 2008, Bebo further expanded its mobile offering and partnered with Intercasting to give its users a new way to produce and share content on their mobile phones via ANTHEM, a platform which connects mobile carriers with social networking sites and entertainment companies.
