Samsung officials are expected to make a foray into the social network service market early next year by introducing a Facebook-like site.
They stated that the electronics giant is developing a social service that will be accessible on a wide variety of internet-capable devices including cameras and televisions, as well as mobile phones, Korea Times reports.
The company is currently the largest mobile phone maker in the world and now it has made the decision to try and compete with Facebook – the social market leader.
An official from the firm told the news provider that Samsung hopes to have the service fully developed by the end of 2012. It will then be rolled out to users in the first or second quarter of next year.
“The eventual goal is to expand our social media service across different devices from different companies across different mobile platforms. That includes cameras, televisions and Blu-Ray players,” the source added.
