A brand new internet social networking service has been unveiled by Vodafone this week, in a move that aims to attract mobile web users across a host of major networks. ‘Vodafone 360’ is targeted at revolutionising social networking on mobiles, acting as an aggregator to sync contacts from your phone, email and social network sites.
