Real Salt Lake Partners With Mobilitie To Bring Futsal Courts To Constitution Park

This post was originally published on this site

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. , Aug.� Mobilitie, LLC further demonstrated its commitment to communities and Major League Soccer (MLS) by donating $30,000 to help fund the construction of futsal courts at Constitution Park in Salt Lake City . � The company presented the check during halftime of the July 29 Real Salt Lake (RSL) match against the Columbus Crew.�

Futsal courts, also called mini-pitches, are hard-surface playing areas about the size of a basketball court, designed specifically for soccer. 

“For Mobilitie, it’s all about communities and connectivity,” said Christos Karmis , president of Mobilitie, LLC.  “The goals of our partnership with Real Salt Lake, and with other MLS teams, is to help the youth of this country stay connected with family, friends, teammates and the other social communities that are so important to their growth and development.”

“We are so excited about Mobilitie’s donation to the RSL Foundation. This donation will help fund the new futsal courts at the Northwest Community Center. These Futsal courts will offer children in this westside community a safe place to play, while providing a soccer environment that encourages unstructured play where kids just need a ball and passion to play,” said Mary VanMinde , executive director of the RSL Foundation.

Futsal was introduced in the 1930s and has become more widespread across the U.S. as soccer and the MLS have become more popular. Due to limited funding and physical space, many municipalities lack the resources to build full-size soccer fields, and futsal courts offer an appealing alternative for those living in urban environments.

“We’re tremendously excited about our relationships with RSL and other MLS teams and what we can accomplish across the country,” said Karmis. “Our networks not only bridge communication gaps, but their design and technology also bring robust 4G LTE coverage to previously underserved communities, helping eliminate the digital divide.”

As a corporate partner with RSL and working with Major League Soccer (MLS) teams across the country, Mobilitie is actively contributing to the opportunities of growth for youth athletics and communities.

Construction of the courts will begin this month and will be completed and open to the public in September, following a grand opening ceremony.

YouTube adds in-app direct messaging and sharing features

This post was originally published on this site
YouTube

Don’t look now, but Google has yet another messaging service — sort of. Today, YouTube announced that it is rolling out a new in-app direct messaging feature, much like what you’ll find in Instagram. Google’s been testing and teasing this feature for over a year now, but after taking user feedback into consideration, the company is rolling it out to all of its users around the world.

As noted, it’s not dissimilar to what Instagram has been doing with its own direct messaging features that arrived in December 2013. When users tap the “share” button on a video, they’ll now have the option to send it directly through the YouTube app to their contacts. The share pane shows people you’ve recently chatted with, as well as some suggestions for people to add to your list. When you tap the “add contacts” button, the app asks if you want to pull in people from your phone book or send an invite link.

Sadly, the phone book doesn’t actually show whether or not your contacts are using YouTube; it just pulls up an “add me as a contact on YouTube” message and dumps it into an SMS. It would be a lot more elegant if the app could recognize which of your friends are signed into YouTube and just start the conversation there. That’s the challenge with what YouTube is trying to do here: It’s easy enough to just use the standard Android or iOS sharing pane to drop a video into iMessage or your chat app of choice, but it’s beneficial for YouTube to keep the conversation going on its own platform.

YouTube’s suggested contacts feature makes it a little easier to get started sharing things. With those people, you can send and confirm invites within the app itself, no SMS needed. Google says those suggestions take into account which people you interact with on YouTube and other Google services, which is to say, people that you email or chat with in Hangouts will presumably show up here as well. Regardless of whether you invite someone through SMS or in the app itself, once the invite is accepted you can freely share videos back and forth.

Fortunately, this new feature works pretty well once you get past dealing with contacts. Once you share a video (your first conversation with a contact needs to be initiated by sharing a video), you and your friend can just chat about it right in YouTube. Whether just one-on-one or in a group, you can chat just as you would with basically any other chat app. Naturally, there’s a button right in the compose area to drop another video into the conversation. Pressing it pulls up your most recently viewed videos, but you can also tap a search button to find basically anything else you’d want to add to the conversation.

Given YouTube’s focus on video, you can only add other videos to the conversation. Otherwise, you’re limited to text and emoji. There are also limited “reaction” features; users can add a heart to any message or video dropped in their chat. But other than that, YouTube wisely keeps things basic here, as there’s no real need for this to compete with more full-featured chat apps like Facebook Messenger, iMessage or even Google’s own Alto.

Indeed, this new feature will probably be most used by heavy YouTube users — probably the kinds of people who frequently upload and create their own videos as well as just watch. But even more-casual YouTube users will probably find themselves using this new feature pretty quickly. The in-app option is now the default way to share YouTube videos, so chances are good that you’ll either send or receive a video like this pretty quickly.

And while it’s easy to chide Google for coming up with yet another messaging system, it’s also something the company had to do to keep people sharing video on its platform instead of through other apps. Instagram made in-app sharing and messaging a focus over the years, and it makes sense for YouTube to do the same — it helps control the experience users have and makes it more likely they’ll keep sharing more clips. Fortunately, YouTube implemented this feature in a way that makes sense and is easy to use, my one qualm about SMS invites aside. If it means my friends are more likely to share ridiculous videos with me, so much the better.

TNT event garners int'l recognition

This post was originally published on this site

Through its SafePH advocacy, Smart has been supporting various government s initiatives aimed at cultivating a culture of preparedness among Filipinos.

Held in February 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, TNT Super Panalo Day was a thanksgiving event for loyal and new customers of TNT, the value brand of Smart. It was meant to celebrate two TNT milestones – its 15-year legacy of empowering Filipinos with affordable call and text promos; and its digital shift into offering mobile internet services.

TNT Super Panalo Day will be recognized at the Golden World Awards (GWA) ceremony in Bulgaria this October. Established in 1990, the GWA is organized annually by the International Public Relations Association to recognize PR practices that meet international standards of excellence.

Thousands of customers attended the TNT Super Panalo Day, which brought together the brand’s biggest endorsers and ambassadors. The stellar line-up was led by action star Robin Padilla, the phenomenal AlDub tandem of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, and Tropang TNT basketball players.

Aside from entertaining the crowd, the event delivered “panalo” (winning) moments for them via exciting games and prizes. TNT also used the event to introduce its budget-friendly Tropa Apps offers. These allow customers to access their favorite apps like Facebook, Clash of Clans, and Viber for only P10.

“TNT always strives to provide its customers with ‘panalo’ moments through practical and meaningful services. Now, aside from having access to budget-friendly call and text services, TNT subscribers can use mobile internet to connect with loved ones, share stories, and access a host of information and services,” said TNT brand head Miriam Choa.

TNT Super Panalo Day proved to be an effective platform in communicating the brand’s mobile data offers. In the three months following the event, TNT recorded a 12% increase in mobile internet users, versus the three months preceding the celebration.

Earlier this year, TNT Super Panalo Day also received an Excellence Award at the Philippine Quill Awards, organized by the International Association of Business Communicators-Philippines.

Meanwhile, the AlDub for TNT campaign won a Quill Merit Award, as well as a Gold Anvil from the Public Relations Society of the Philippines.

Last year, it was named Best Operator Marketing Campaign at the Global Telecoms Awards ceremony held in London. This awards program is produced by industry publication Telecoms.com.

“We are honored by the international and local recognition that TNT has been receiving. We celebrate these ‘panalo’ moments with our customers, and promise to continue delivering value-packed and relevant services to them,” Choa said.

Four million farmers digitally empowered

This post was originally published on this site

GSMA’s mNutrition initiative empowered more than five million farmers in six developing countries, nearly four million of them in collaboration with Grameenphone and Telenor Pakistan.

Launched in February 2014, the GSMA mNutrition initiative is a program supported by UK aid. It is designed to improve nutrition for underserved populations through mobile-based services that aim to change behaviours. Six companies across Asia and Africa collaborated with GSMA Mobile for Development to launch and scale up the program in their respective countries, including Grameenphone and Telenor Pakistan, along with Airtel Malawi, Dialog Sri Lanka, Vodafone Ghana and Ooredoo Myanmar.

Recently, GSMA released an impact report on the initiative and reported 5.1 million agricultural value-added service (Agri VAS) users as a result of the efforts conducted in 6 countries. Out of these, 760,000 are from Bangladesh using Grameenphone’s Krishi Sheba service and 2.9 million are active users of Khushhaal Zamindar service, created by Telenor Pakistan.

 

Khushaal Zamindar (Prosperous Landlord) is an Agri VAS launched by Telenor Pakistan in December 2015, and it offers a three-layered value proposition to farmers: improve yields & save them from disaster. Users dial 7272, numbers chosen because they sound the same as the Urdu words meaning “work together”. This number gives users access to various content categories which are stylised in the form of short conversations between members of a local farming family. In addition, daily calls and SMS include weather forecasts and agricultural and livestock advisory, also available through IVR. The service is free of cost for users and is looking into offering advertising space to form a sustainable business model.

Impact: Khushaal Zamindar users see the mobile phone as a key source of information. Active users cited their phone or 7272 as one of their two most important information sources, more often than non-users (85% versus 56%).

Krishi Sheba (Agriculture Service) registers users through a one-click registration process for access to seasonal agricultural content from planting to post-harvest, choosing from three of 16 crops and livestock. The service was offered free of cost during Q2 and Q3 2016 and is now charged at a nominal USD 0.04 per week. It advertises one outbound dialing call per week per crop with one additional nutrition message. Users can also access more information through IVR or speaking to a call center agent.

Impact: While Krishi Sheba is not the only source of information for most users, 66% of users reported their mobile as one of the two main sources of information leading them to make changes in their practices, compared to 42% of non-users.
