One common theme seemed to be the letter "P" on this podcast - Pinterest, Pin-It and, Pages were just some of the topics. I must confess immediately that I learned something since we recorded this podcast; when discussing Twitter's recent acquisition, Iain talked about "Posterious" which I questioned on the podcast thinking it should be "Posterus", which I've since found out could be from the Latin posterus 'following'. In fact, we were both wrong; the name is Posterous. Perhaps our friendly expert Linguist, Sally Goetsch can shed some light on what the name might mean?
The good news is that we managed to keep this podcast under one hour but, we still manage to cram in lots of chat from the world of social media including:
- The iPad3 - Iain and I managed to sneak a look at the latest offering from Apple just before we recorded the podcast. We also discuss the fact that there didn't appear to be the same buying frenzy this time around.
- Unfortunately, Tesco don't honour online errors in the same way that Zappos did last year
- ClikThis App
- Still no natve Android Apps for DIGG or Pinterest
- Posterous - we discuss the sale to Twitter, even if we do get the name wrong!
- Facebook's IPO - Is it already reshaping Facebook. We also mention how the disclosures are starting to filter through with recent acknowledgements that the number of unique users could have been overstated by 40 million and, the large number of pending law suits against them.
- Facebook Timeline for Pages - the new Page layout and how that will affect the way some organisations operate their business pages
- fatBuzz's new "Infographic" page on Facebook
- Steve Jobs doll, we get a comprehensive answer courtesy of the Morton Fraser Podcast on Image Rights
- Pinterest - Is it a 'girly' tool and what's making it so popular at the moment. We also discuss the various copyright issues that are emerging around Pinterest
- Influence measurements platforms like Klout - how accurate are they? We look at various platforms such as: TweetReach, PeerIndex, Klout, Tweetstats, Crowd Booster, Twenty Feet and, My Web Career
- Social Media Monitoring tools - are they overpriced?
- ROI - will it become less of an issue for organisations?
- Scheduled Tweets - good or bad practice? Also, see Jennifer Holloways guest blog on this topic
- Kony2012 - Is it all it appears to be? Most of our team didn't really trust the video.
- Consumption - How often do you watch 100% of a video or, read 100% of an article or blog post?
- Tim Barlow from Attacat asks, "Are bloggers who charge contributors for guest posts right to do so? Is there better way to monitise a blog?" We would like to discuss this in greater detail on Podcast 45 so, if you have an opinion please get in touch via the comments below. Or, perhaps you would be willing to come on the podcast and discuss it. Thank you to Tim for the suggestion.
