Telekom Malaysia Berhad’s (TM) youth-oriented website www.everyoneconnects.net recently celebrated its 1st anniversary with a fresh look and feel as well as the introduction of new features and applications.
To commemorate the first year of Everyoneconnects, TM celebrated the occasion with various exciting activities in collaboration with Sony, Universal Music and other partners. Among the activities were PS3 competitions, balloon busting event, a birthday celebration for EveryoneConnects, an online gaming face-off with pro-gamer Summer and a special performance by Bunkface. The event was hosted by Hunny Madu and Ben from Flyfm, who hyped things up with their funny antics and lively banter with the crowd.
At the event, TM unveiled The World of EveryoneConnects, the newly enhanced interactive website of www.everyoneconnects.net where fans will be able to interact within their own communities, send greetings to one another, listen to music, view sporting events and movies as well as participate in more interactive and upcoming events.
TM also launched its UniFi high speed broadband service new TV Commercial at the Everyone Connects event. The TVC, titled “We love the UniFi VIP lifestyle” features the award-winning indie band, Bunkface downloading music through UniFi high speed Internet connection; Summer, a professional online gamer defeating her rivals on Sudden Attack thanks to UniFi stability and Zeffri Yusof, a UniFi customer and his family watching HyppTV via their UniFi connection.
When www.everyoneconnects.net was first launched in November 2009, it began with a song entitled “Through My Window” performed by Bunkface and other celebrity artistes. The videos were screened via the EveryoneConnects website and users were encouraged to upload their own cover versions of the song and vote for their favourite cover selections. Through word-of-mouth and the power of social media, a simple yet catchy song culminated in Malaysia’s largest outdoor sing-along event in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, participated by more than 6,000 fans at Bintang Walk.
Okay, let’s check out the new features of The World of EveryoneConnects.
Among the features of the newly-enhanced website include the Stadium, the Jamming Garage, Open House and Sini Maa, representing diverse communities and interests of EveryoneConnects’s fans.
Here’s the world for the football fans! The Stadium is designed as a sports locker room.
From here, fans will be able to access “hot off the pitch” features which showcase news, highlights, interviews and videos from Manchester United TV or MUTV. These rich football content are offered by TM in collaboration with Manchester United as the Official Integrated Telecommunications Partner of Manchester United in Malaysia.
Another feature of the webpage is a game play board that also serves as a chat room for fans.
The Jamming Garage emulates aspects of a garage music studio. Music lovers would love hanging out here!
Bunkface fans would totally love this coz the studio features “Camp Bunkface”, where fans can get all the information they need about Bunkface, listen to their songs and watch video previews as well as exchange music information.
Ahhh….for the movies lover, Sini Maa is a playful webpage for movies.
This webpage highlights movie trailers and videos available on Hypptv (UniFi), and Hypp.tv (web channels) including video clips from Pilih Kasih, the acting reality program sponsored by TM. The webpage also features Movie Buzz, a chat room for film buffs.
To provide further opportunities for fans to connect, communicate and collaborate, Open House is the perfect place for fans of EveryoneConnects to extend various messages and wishes for birthdays, festivals and celebrations.
The Open House is designed to appeal to all Malaysians and features video wishes, a wish board called Spread Some Love, and a selection of personalized e-cards for the user’s selection. Since Christmas is around the corner, why not send some greetings card from here to your lovely friends?
