The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the fourteenth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
Now that the uber-popular live streaming service, Ustream, has launched a tightly-woven integration into the new Facebook timeline, much like the ever-popular on-demand music streaming service, Spotify, the internet is sure to be abuzz with a rekindled interest in watching videos with our friends … in real-time!
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the Tweets of San Francisco-based .tv service, Ustream (@ustream) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who is responsible for bringing the term “lifecasting” into the public’s collective conscious.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who is responsible for bringing the term ‘lifecasting’ into the public’s collective conscious” in the same sentence. Yes, we see you over there, pondering the security settings of your Ustream + Facebook Timeline integration…
