YFonGlobal, a leading social networking enabler, added a high value benefit to their wyndstorm social network suite by providing the first click-to-call feature to its latest hosted social network, entitled MyGK, the private online member community tailored for The Golden Key Society. With this feature, Golden Key will be able to provide its 1.7 million members worldwide a free online buddy calling service between its members.
“wyndstorm continues to lead the industry in providing social networks that are tailored for specific requirements of a private member community-and free buddy calling is a high value feature,” said Marian Sabety, President and CEO of YFonGlobal.
Developed through the company’s partnership with CounterPath Solutions, the leading provider of VoIP (Voice over IP) and Video over IP softphones, the click-to-call feature enables wyndstorm to seamlessly synchronize the community member directory with CounterPath’s softphone application, allowing members to communicate quickly and easily. Whenever a MyGK member adds a favorite friend to their personal space in the community, that friend automatically appears in the click-to-call / IM (Instant Message) contact list in the application. The friend can then “see” his buddy’s availability for a call, and the two buddies can then call each other-whether they are Windows PC or Mac users.
