The new portal collates your networking accounts on-screen

A new social networking option has been made available to Orange network users, which may interest those recycling mobile phones.

Named Social Life, the carrier explained that the application is a "one-stop-shop" for people who regularly connect to services such as MySpace, Facebook and Bebo.

Acting as a homescreen that can be accessed via the Orange World online mobile portal, consumers can use the system to collate individual social networking accounts.

In addition to allowing photo uploads and status updates, a Widget Player has been launched alongside Social Life that Mark Watts-Jones, head of product management at the network in the UK, said is ideal for other content.

"Over time we will be looking to add more sites to the service - helping users to stay in touch in touch with the people and content that matters most to them," he added.

The Toshiba TG01 is one of the latest phones to be made available by Orange.
