For some time now, Black Berry has been talking about monetizing BBM.
The company has started offering stickers, noting that many messaging applications, particularly in Asia, have successfully built new revenue streams by opening up a sticker shop for their users to peruse.
And, just like Glympse, you can set a timer for how long you want to share your location for.
It didn’t share many details, but the company did say that timed messages and message retraction will be included in the package.
But with the rise of i Phone and Android smartphones that number has tumbled.
Now that the company formerly known as RIM has released a chat app version of its service, that may change. Visit Google Play on your Android smartphone and search for BBM. Wait for the email to arrive that says you've reached the front of the line. After you receive the email, you simply re-open the app and enter your address, then tap Next. Tap "Create a Black Berry ID" if you have never used, or don't remember your old PIN.
You'll also need to check off that you've read the terms of service and whether you want to receive special messages from the company.
