July 24, 2012 - PRLog -- WATERLOO, ONTARIO -  Rebellion Media has added a critical component to its strategy with the acquisition of Jingu (http://www.jinguapps.com/) - the first mobile-only social discovery platform.  

“The acquisition of Jingu brings a team to Rebellion that has ten years of mobile experience including being one of the product visionaries behind one of the most successful mobile applications worldwide, Blackberry Messenger (“BBM”).  We are excited for Jingu to join Rebellion both for the team’s mobile expertise as well as the million-plus and growing monthly active users on their platform,” said Ted Hastings, CEO of Rebellion Media.  

Jingu Friends is a mobile-only social discovery platform that allows users to find mobile messaging users around them and connect with them instantly. Jingu’s platform has grown aggressively since its launch and is currently processing over 100,000 messages per day.  

“We had grown our user base aggressively with the initial launch of the app and proved the business model along the way.  We were looking for the digital media infrastructure that we could leverage to take our platform to the next level and found that our strategic direction aligned exceptionally well with Rebellion Media. We’re thrilled to be joining this aggressively growing organization and contributing our deep mobile expertise,” stated Theban Ganeshalingam, co-founder of Jingu.
