Intro

Telesocial is powered by the world's largest network operators -- the mobile network operators -- providing the highest quality and largest coverage worldwide on the most trusted networks.

Our social voice API enables mobile calling in social networks.  No more phone numbers, no cost, high security and massive scale.

Using our social voice API is simple and free for users and developers.

By removing the need for phone numbers, coding communications becomes easier, for example:

                                            Facebook: john call bill susie joey

                                            Twitter: @john call @bill @susize @lucy @steve

For users, Telesocial is like a firewall for your mobile phone number, protecting it from the social web.  Now you can integrate mobile phones to social networks at massive scale with absolute device security.  1 million users?  1 billion?  Connect them all now to the most reliable network with over 100% penetration.

Telesocial is simple REST over SSL -- our methods are simple but deliver a rich communications framework.

How does it work?

Telesocial is a security and routing system for social networks and mobile phones in the context of the developer's application on Facebook, on an iPad or iPhone, or on Android, or any Twitter client or combination of any of the supported social networks.  

Telesocial manages all of this by authenticating devices to users using applications.  Once authorized, apps can then use mobile devices in a secure and anonymous way and at huge scale.

Developers can manage mobile calling features from social networks to mobile devices. 

The relationships that Telesocial manage are the following:

            1. User -- i.e. @Telesocial (Twitter) or 6815841748 (Facebook)

            2. Device - the person's phone number(s)

            3. Network - One of the 9 supported networks (Facebook, Twitter, iOS, Android / Google+, LinkedIn, Box.com, Yammer, Email, Minecraft)

            4. Application - this is your app that runs on one of the 9 networks (or any of the 9 in combination)

            5. Operator - the mobile operator for the user's device (Sprint, Verizon, ATT, TMobile, MatroPCS, etc. all US WIRELESS DOMESTIC 48 STATES).

Developers must first sign up and get an application key, i.e.:

                                       6dea4a3a-9414-46ed-be3f-d04219a8823e

Now you can implement the Telesocial API.

Examples

Telesocial is an easy way for developers to integrate phones with the Social Web.  it’s easy to call people programmatically, without phone numbers and using only social names.  The functions for Telesocial are simple word-based algorithms that do fun calling stuff using applications on social networks or in mobile applications. Actions like call, record, blast, and voicemail are some quick examples.  Telesocial works on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn,  iTunes to iOS devices, and Android.   Telesocial can be implemented in any language.

The pseudocode below demonstrates the simplicity and power of using Telesocial with any social network or application platform.

call ( 125318975235,1239812309)                                         Call two Facebook users 

Use cases:  call 2 players in a game, or a part of a social application on Facebook,

call ( 124835798375, 839482347, 7927123753, 1389572435) - Conference call 4 Facebook users 

Use cases:  call multiple people on a Facebook, party line, call a Group on FB and start a conference call, team call in a game, etc.

record (helloworld) -  Record message “helloworld”

Use cases:  record a message that you want to use later to broadcast to a group

blast friends ( 2491480137232.helloworld ) -   Send voice message “helloworld” to friends

voicemail (@the_real_shaq,@aplusk) -  Record voice message and forward to 2 Twitter users

blast followers (@aplusk.heyall)           Send voice message “@aplusk.heyall” to all Twitter followers

Of course you could imagine using other services such as SMS, Location Based Services (LBS), payment gateways, video, for example:

video followers (@aplusk)                   Start video streaming / video to all Twitter followers
