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. In early August, Facebook announced its release of a live streaming feature, Live , similar to Twitter’s Periscope and Snapchat’s Snapchat Live and Snapchat Story.

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. For example, my FriendFeed pages show activity from this blog, the Internet Time Blog, my Flickr account, bookmarks I put on Delicious, and my entries from Twitter.

Twitter: Le triple filtre

Learning with e's

I've been discussing the merits of Twitter as a professional social network recently in conversation with colleagues. One of the regular objections to using Twitter professionally is that there is too great a noise-to-signal ratio. In other words, people are reluctant to get too deeply involved with Twitter because they think they will be swamped with people talking about what they had for breakfast, how their cat was sick on their auntie Bessie, or other niff naff and trivia.

Twitter vs blogging

Learning with e's

This time it's whether Twitter is killing blogging. I was only on the periphery of the Twitter vs blogging debate when I chaired a F-ALT (Fringe ALT-C) session late at night over at the Contact Theatre in Manchester last week.

Missing the Point of Twitter

I recently read an NPR commentary about Twitter in which the author says he won’t use Twitter because he thinks people should keep their lives private and not broadcast every mundane event to world.

Three Practical Ideas for Using Twitter in E-Learning

Twitter’s all the rage. I’ll have to admit, I have mixed feelings about Twitter (and much of the other social media).
