OpenSesame

There has been a lot of buzz within and outside of the tech community about live streaming. From Snapchat’s debut in 2011 to Twitter’s ugly war with Meerkat and its later acquisition of the streaming service, Periscope , Facebook is now tentatively entering the live streaming market. What does this mean for existing streaming apps? Celebrity Involvement.

Evaluating Facebook and Twitter for e-Learning

eFront

Facebook and Twitter. So how about Facebook, which also allows you to post videos but on top of that offers a lot of extra capabilities, including Group pages, wall posts, personal messages, and the ability to embed fully interactive applications (including the ability to monetize them)? All in all, the situation regarding Facebook and learning looks most like a wasted opportunity.

How To Dethrone Google, and Who Will Likely Do It (Hint: Not Facebook)

Coffee and Design

Originally posted by Derek Brown on LinkedIn How To Dethrone Google, and Who Will Likely Do It (Hint: Not Facebook). No one will beat Google at their own game of traditional search, a great email client, aggregation of video content, or a robust advertising stream. You can disagree with me vehemently (in the comments!), but Twitter has much more staying power than Facebook.

Activity Streams

George Siemens

Activity streams are still in their infancy, as is evident by the painful process of trying to bring together people, sites, and ideas, according to areas of interest. The future of Web 2.0 is about streams of content. If we want to help people, we need to help them be attentively aligned—&# in flow&# —with these information streams. This one qualifies: ( source ).

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. As people use various different web sites to blog, update their status, post their location, or photos, sites and tools have emerged to aggregate these various actions into a continuous eclectic stream of activities. Activity streams are going to be wildly important for social learning.

Jump Into The Stream

First it was all about 'pages' and now it is about the 'stream'. It started with RSS and now its galloping ahead with Twitter, FriendFeed, Facebook and the like. Someone might notice an obscure blog post on Twitter, where it starts spreading, then it moves to FriendFeed and Facebook and desktop stream readers such as Tweetdeck or Seesmic desktop and before you know it, a hundred thousand people are reading that article. The stream creates a different form of syndication which cannot be licensed and cannot be controlled

e-Learning Acupuncture: The Facebook Addiction

eLearning Acupuncture

Thursday, April 19, 2007 The Facebook Addiction Have you tried Facebook yet? I’ve been on Facebook for a couple of months now and it is time for me to write something about it in this blog. After thinking about the Facebook phenomenon for quite some time I have to admit that the allure of Facebook for me is that I can be a voyeur and an exhibitionist at the same time. When you’re on Facebook you ‘collect’ friends. That comes into play because I understand that this information sharing on Facebook is a two-way street.

Streaming to your Television. If there was ever a technology that is emerging and continues to do is – its streaming.  I’m not talking about viewing online streaming video, I am talking about actually viewing video or whatever on your television. Take a look at the tabletop boxes that exist today in the space of streaming from the net to your television, and you shouldn’t be surprised on the players (no pun attended) that see this as the next big thing. Use this powerhouse and stream it to a television or mobile device. It was revoluntary. 

Streams of Content, Limited Attention

An interesting take by Danah Boyd on how the information streams that we are living in (blogs, tweets, facebook, buzz, etc.) The main argument here is that it is difficult to direct attention to something in a stream. feel the same way when living in the stream of blogs and tweets. If only I could control the pace of my stream…. “To be relevant today requires understanding context, popularity, and reputation. We’re already seeing this in streams-based media consumption. need some change in order to be relevant. Right now, it’s one big mess.

Social Media for small businesses

Adventures in Corporate Education

Facebook. You want to be on Facebook because more than 500 million people are on Facebook, so there is a good chance your audience is there. Facebook is also easy to use, so that is a plus. This is important – don’t make a Facebook user for your business. We use Facebook to connect to our audiences, and to invite them to our community (where we do the bulk of our messaging/content creation). But if you don’t have the resources to maintain both, maybe a Facebook fan page is enough for you! Next is messaging. Will they mock you?

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. But Google+ also encourages deeper communication by having no character limit and keeping the whole conversation in one place (one strength of Facebook). The comparison to Facebook is tougher. In reality, there’s no reason I CAN’T do the same thing in Facebook. JU: I agree that sharing and privacy controls are much easier in Google+ than in Facebook.
