Bebo and Slicethepie announce partnership

slicethepie-bebo.jpg

Second-tier social network Bebo and innovative fan-funding mechanic Slicethepie have got together to offer an attractive proposition for both Bebo users and bands using the Slicethepie service.

Slicethepie works by crowd-sourcing the A&R process, something that I strongly advocated in my series of posts on innovating digital music. People can invest in bands, and once a band has enough to make an album, any investors get a share of the revenues from selling that album, as well as a credit .

The partnership means that Bebo users will be able to review and rate content on the service, and will be paid a small fee for doing so. Bands that get financed via the Bebo showcase will gain a promotional package that Bebo claims is worth £50k, that’ll include an album launch party, promotion on the Bebo homepage, and exposure to major label A&Rs.

The first “Scout Room” on Bebo will go live this month, so if you’re in a band, it’s definitely worth a look. Just make sure you’ve got a strong presence on Bebo too. What does Bebo get out of it? More bands on a service that’s struggling to compete with Myspace, let alone Facebook’s dominance of the sector.

Although all bar one person missed out on being shot into space with a couple of Samsung NV cameras (something Gary was clearly not happy about when he reported it back in April), we can at least get a fairly decent deal on cinema outings for the next year courtesy of the company to put the first Korean digital camera in space.

Don’t rush out and buy a camera from the NV Series this week, though, as the offer runs from 13th October until 31st December 2008 only…

Our LG CityClickers mobloggers are still snapping away at European sights

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to show you a brief look at what’s been going on over at our CityClickers moblog, created in collaboration with LG.

Those European mobloggers of ours have been busy with their LG Viewty handsets, sending in snaps of graffiti in the Netherlands, a French rainbow and our Spanish moblogger has even posted some pics of him dressed as a hippy, Superman and a Viking. Glad someone’s got some time on his hands…!
