“Warid Buzz” is a service which allows users to record their information on an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) channel and their followers and audiences can dial in to listen whenever they want to. Warid Buzz is a new medium which will have User Generated Content for the audience to enjoy. This is an interesting platform for customers looking into opportunities for voice blogging or for making announcements.
Anyone can become a publisher! Simply register as a publisher by dialing 2898 and start recording your thoughts. Individuals, groups of students, universities, fashion designers, lecturers, NGOs, journalists, politicians and even government officials can subscribe to the service and record messages for their audience to listen to. What’s more, all publishers are given a unique ID which can be communicated to their followers to listen to their messages.
