Richmond, VA, February 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Hodges Partnership, the strategic communications and public relations company, has added mobile and social software company Vringo as a new client.
The Hodges Partnership is responsible for Vringo’s corporate media relations and media relations support for Facetones, an app that enhances the social and entertainment factor of the typical mobile call: when you make or receive a call, you will see a friend’s latest photos from Facebook. Facetones has a four-star rating from Android users and is among the top-75 social apps, having achieved 1 million downloads this week.
“We appreciate the opportunity to help Vringo make its mark on this rapidly changing field as the growth of social and mobile experiences is of particular interest to our firm,” said Jon Newman, partner and co-founder of The Hodges Partnership. “What we like about the Facetones product is how the app – in essence – brings Facebook’s Timeline to your mobile phone call, adding another dimension to this mode of connection.”
Vringo, which became a public company in 2010 (NYSE Amex: VRNG), is based in New York and recently received $2.5 million in funding led by Benchmark Capital and DAG Ventures, companies that have invested in online brands like eBay, Twitter and Yelp.
