SEOUL, Oct. 2 (Korea Bizwire) – Each army unit will form a social network channel to communicate among the commander, rank-and-file soldiers and their parents as a move to innovate military culture in Korea.
Camp Mobile, a subsidiary of NHN operating social networking service “Band,” signed a business agreement with the Army of the Republic of Korea to make the best use of Band by forming a Band community for each army unit and revitalizing it.
Some army units have already formed Band communities and are using it as channels to communicate among the units and parents of the soldiers. The agreement will expand the model into all the army units to innovate the military barracks culture. With the private communities, parents can obtain information on the unit such as who are the commander or senior soldiers and how are the barracks lives of their children.
An official at Camp Mobile said, “With the agreement, we hope the army could provide a good means of communications by using the intimate Band service and the military interacts not only among soldiers but with parents.”
