BBSocial.com launched

watercooler.jpgLike all of you, we’re always on the search for the most latest and relevant (underlined) BlackBerry news. Thankfully, a new initiative has surfaced that takes the information from top BlackBerry sites like, say, this one, as well as RIMarkable and the Boy Genius Report, and compiles them all into a one-stop watercooler-type discussion spot – BBSocial.com. BlackBerry Social, or BBSocial for short, let’s you do more than just read the news, too – you can make your own. Check out the full release.

Remember the days where most business would be discussed around the water cooler? There’s no business more important to us these days than BlackBerry business, and we’ve decided to make our own cooler to discuss the news. BlackBerry Social, located at BBSocial.com, is a site that gathers news from relevant sites, such as BlackBerry Cool, RIMarkable, and the Boy Genius Report, and compiles them onto one site for users to check out and discuss.

This isn’t meant to replace the originators of the news, though. If anything, it’s to build their site’s popularity and reputation as reputable news sources.

We’re making this an open forum, too – readers can log in and post stories of their own. In a style similar to Digg, each submitted story is then subjected to a voting process where the more popular story gets pushed to the top while the rest flounder beneath. Want to see your story on the leader board? Make it worthwhile.

BlackBerrys are already a part of your business life, now make them social. BlackBerry Social.

    Guys, do you know realize how ridiculous it to launch a site for BlackBerry discussion that looks attrocious/unusable when browsing it on the BlackBerry.

    It’s forgivable for some other companies not have mobile versions right out the gate, but no mobile support from a BlackBerry specialist site? Hrmm…

    If you’re curious, Digg has diggriver.com or their full site is at least navigable on BlackBerry since the content shows up near the top.

    Despite all these, I don’t know if there’s enough BlackBerry news for this to work well. Personally I only see bbhub, blackberry cool, and rimarkable updating frequently. And sometimes bbhub is just posting fun news – a photos taken by someone’s pearl, posting the stock price, or posting about celebrities.
