Social Network reviews – beginning of a spring.net series

Starting today, I’m going to start a series of reviews, accompanied by screencasts, of reviews of social networks, social bookmarking services and social media sites on the Spring.  You can see my initial list there which I’ll be modifying as this series goes along.

Listal is a social networking site where you can find people who share your tastes in movies, books, music or games.  Lists and collections are shared via a simple url like (in my case) http://springnet.listal.com and they give you widgets to plug in to your blog or website.

The site stands out for it’s tight integration of tagging, friends, finding others, forums and messaging.  The “explore” feature is hot, it lets you scan through reviews of movies, tv shows, books, games, dvds, and music.

Justin does web 2.0 expo

Web 2.0 Expo: Justin(e).tv Is On the Air

Justinetv

New media connoisseur Justine Ezarik has strapped on Justin’s camera rig at the Web 2.0 Expo.

Justine’s twitter page is http://twitter/ijustine and her blog is at http://www.tastyblogsnack.com/ 

If you can’t make it to the web 2.0 expo this is the next best thing.  Or maybe it’s the best thing.

from webpronews.com:

web 2.0 EXPO: The Social Media Revolution | mad dog in the fog – Yesterday, Robert Scoble, Chris Pirillo, Jeremiah Owyang  participated in a panel on The Social Media Revolution at O’Reilly’s Web 2.0 Expo.

Jeremiah has a great write up on the 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.

Twitter.com

Twitter, says the official website is a “ Whole World in Your Hands”

What is twitter?

“Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends. Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own.”

Ok… so how does it work?

“You can send updates in three ways: send a text message from your mobile phone, type a message from the Twitter site, or instant message from Jabber or Gmail chat. (support for AIM and other chat services coming soon!) Start by texting the word help to 40404 if you’re in the United States. For international folks, we have different numbers. Write us and we’ll give you yours.”

I heard about twitter from Cote on his drunkandretired podcast.

You can see the twitter plugin on the lower right column of the austincast blog.
