Fujitsu revamps Raku-Raku social network service

Raku-Raku Community updated with new groups and communications features in time for launch of Raku-Raku Smartphone.

By Claire Vanner

Fujitsu has begun revamping its Raku-Raku Community, an Internet service that lets members enjoy discussing their interests and popular topics.

The launch coincides with the release of the Raku-Raku Smartphone 2 F-08E in mid-August, 2013.

The Raku-Raku Community now offers two new features that let members participate in private groups with friends or in open groups for anyone to join, as well as the ability for members to exchange messages within the application.

It provides a new way to use smartphones that lets friends with a shared interest discuss and post photos and comments to their friends.

Fujitsu has responded to initial criticism of the service from its launch in August 2012 and has made the service more appealing as a place where people can gather and communicate on a friendlier basis.

Comments from users included: "communicating using only nicknames isn’t very fulfilling" and "I want to be able to interact on a more personal level." The updated software fulfils these and many other needs.

Features of the new Raku-Raku Community include ‘Circle Hiroba’ where groups are listed and users can find new groups to join, personal groups for private group communications. There are also Raku-Raku Community Groups which anyone can join and take part in photo contests and other events as well as bulletin boards and forums to discuss anything from travel to health.

The service will continue to be accessible from mobile phones other than Raku-Raku Smartphones. There are also plans to have a dedicated website that will allow access from tablets and desktop computers.
