Bubbly Launches Voice-Based Social Network in the United Kingdom, With Manchester United's Rio Ferdinand Providing Exclusive Audio Content

Users Flock to Bubbly to Hear Voice Recordings From Their Favorite Celebrities as the Service Launches in the United Kingdom and Continues Further Expansion Into Japan, Indonesia, and Malaysia

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/14/13 -- Today, Bubbly, the leading voice blogging service with over 20 million devoted fans across the world, is launching across the United Kingdom with all-new celebrities, including football superstar Rio Ferdinand. Bubbly allows users to share short voice updates, or "Bubbles" with friends and followers, while applying fun filters to their recordings. Along with the service's UK rollout, Rio Ferdinand's exclusive content will be available for users of the smartphone app globally, and feature phone users in select countries.

As an early subscriber to the service, Ferdinand uses Bubbly to update his fans on his daily adventures, locker room pranks, and his pre- and post-game thoughts. Bubbly allows celebrities like Ferdinand to authentically represent themselves, using their own voice. On other social media sites, it's common for communications managers to take over a celebrity's account, which removes the personal touch that Bubbly users value. People can follow the voices of celebrities, sports stars, and other well-known users on Bubbly in a special way, as if listening to a close friend leaving a voicemail.

"I love showing support for my fans, and Bubbly lets me connect with them in a way that I've never been able to before," says Man U's Ferdinand. "Voice updates bring a fresh way for me to have a dialogue with my fans and I've been having a lot of fun posting recordings."

"We're excited to bring such a fun and useful way of communicating with friends, family, and followers to Europe for the very first time. Having popular celebrities like Rio Ferdinand joining the service early on is great, because users will get to experience the Bubbly difference in the celebrity/fan connection right off the bat," says Thomas Clayton, CEO of Bubble Motion.

Bubbly recently launched a new version of its iOS app, which allows users to spice up their voice posts by applying cool filters like "Helium," "Echo Chamber," and "Synth." Users simply record their message on their iPhone, choose a filter to revamp the sound and vibe, and post to their account to share with friends, fans, and followers. The newest version of Bubbly includes a selection of effects, including "Applause" and "Laughing."

The Bubbly app can be downloaded for Android in the Google Play app store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bubblemotion, and the newest version, Bubbly 2.4 for iPhone in the Apple App Store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bubbly-voice-social-network/id462545005?mt=8.
