Useful tips and tools suggested to make blog interesting and useful
Audioboo is brewing a new feature that will let users send private messages to each other – like Twitter's direct messages, but audio. Destination: Massive.
Thinking about how Audioboo is used and what it plugs into gets very interesting. If you're not in a position to type a message, you can record and send a boo instead. There's a five minute limit (though a planned pro version would allow you more) – but five minutes of audio is a lot more message than 140 characters.
You have anywhere from three to ten seconds to capture and hold someone’s attention in a conversation. On Twitter, you have 140 characters. Realistically, you have about one second if you consider the number of Twitter users (100 million+) and the number of tweets per second (1,000–4,000, pending on the current events). The point? If you don’t have a snazzy lede (am I old school for still spelling it that way?) you’re never going to get clicked.
One for selling Twitter to the newsroom.
Handy guide to make sure a video is indexed on Google news.
