These days social networks (over internet and mobile phones) are getting popular amongst Pakistani youth. Few days back I got an invitation on my cellphone, someone asked me to join “PRING” – A social network for mobile phone users. As I became a part of it, I find it very useful, and here i am with its review.
Pring is a social network using the modern technologies, Internet and Mobile phones to connect you and your buddies; it lets you share what you’re upto with your friends via your cell phone or online in 140 characters or less. I hope the following video will describe it more efficiently:
Who can Join and Whats the procedure?
Currently pring is running Open Beta Testing on Warid, Ufone and Zong.
You can signup here: http://www.pringit.com/
Once you are signed-up, you can use the service with text messages. , there are separate sms codes for each network for warid 9536, ufone 414 and Zong is 2323
During this open Beta, Pring is free, though this service supports a Twitter like internet account but you can use this service entirely via SMS.
You can register via SMS as well, here is the process
Why should I use pring?
By using Pring you can stay connected with your friends, custom applications, premium services all via your handsets, Can get latest updates from your Twitter and Facebook accounts, Rss feeds, news about media, sports etc, Can follow other pringers, chat with other people using public prings, Pring’s philosophy is to enable everything via your handset in a way that don’t require internet. This works very well because many people still do not have internet connectivity but do have basic SMS and voice access. The service is free in this Open Beta, so why Don’t give it a try! Just Pring It!
