ShoZu Facebook Update
Photo uploading service ShoZu today revealed an upgrade to its mobile app that lets cellphone owners send to Facebook, allowing members of the social networking site to add photo collections without first reaching a PC. Users can not only tag photos but also have the ability to link their Flickr photo accounts to the site, ShoZu says. A new Facebook tool named Photo Status will automatically transfer photos uploaded to Flickr to a Facebook profile, providing near live photo albums for events as they happen.
The free change to ShoZu works with all the existing 200-plus phones that support the service, including the Nokia N95, and requires only that the device have an onboard camera and an Internet connection fast enough to upload photos to the web. Transfers can occur without interrupting most calls and are supported in any one of 79 countries.
