BBM Messenger has just celebrated its 12th birthday! We’ve come a long way since we were first created in August 2005, evolving from a free messaging application for text and video communication to a social eco-system unifying chat, social, commerce, content and services that includes bill payment, top-up, rewards, coupons, news, games, comics, video, shopping, travel, career, sports, polls, and transportation.
In celebration of our 12th anniversary, we’ve recently held a ‘BBM Turns 12’ Contest where participants shared their most memorable memories with BBM – be it funny, amusing, romantic, or simply how BBM had been a significant part of their lives.
The contest ran for 10 days from August 21st to 31st, during which we received more than a thousand heart-warming and amusing entries. It has been a difficult decision; but nevertheless, we’ve picked our winner!
So, congratulations to Racheal Amoo, who hails from Nigeria! To reward her winning entry, Racheal will receive an exclusively created BBM sticker pack sporting her face.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be working with Racheal to get her dedicated stickers created, and developing her winning entry into content on BBM Channel (PIN: C0012E76). So, keep your eyes peeled on this space!
