A microblogging service with a focus on SMS messaging, Frengo hopes to lure in the late teen/ early twenties crowd by offering prizes for creating buzz. A buzz is similar to an RSS feed except that you get a text message when there is a new post. Users subscribe to a buzz on a topic they like or earn points by creating a buzz for others to subscribe to. Frengo has partnerships with a number of mobile carriers including Verizon, Sprint-Nextel, T Mobile, and Virgin Mobile. URL: Frengo.
