Web 2.0 Expo: The Social Media Revolution
web 2.0 EXPO: The Social Media Revolution | mad dog in the fog – Yesterday, Robert Scoble, Chris Pirillo, Jeremiah Owyang and myself participated in a panel on The Social Media Revolution at O’Reilly’s Web 2.0 Expo.
Jeremiah has a great write up on our talk over here.
The talk was an interesting one about where social media is headed and especially the ways that small businesses can use social media to their advantage. Twitter, Flickr, Zooomr, MySpace, Facebook, blogging, videoblogging, podcasting, UStream.tv, Digg, etc., are all tools that all businesses ought to be aware of at a minimum and using to follow the conversations that are taking place about their company and products.
Mike Doeff caught some of the talk on video and you can see that here.
UStream.tv featured prominently in the talk and there were three separate UStream.tv feeds running live while the talk was going on in addition to a back channel IRC and interaction through things like Twitter.
With the popularity of Justin.tv, UStream.tv especailly seems to be of interest these days. UStream.tv allows anyone to stream their life or real time video via cams and is potentially bringing a new realtime nature to social media. Jeremiah and Scoble spent much of the Web 2.0 conference broadcasting in real time through UStream.tv.
