- my profile name is my real name - but i noticed that like forums some chose false or shorter names. I asked for a link to the product that was being disgussed in the chatroom as no active url was there or given - something for them to take note of - a visitor can click on an active url in and listen to you at the same time!
So things to learn from watching someone else new to the ustream/co-host feature - firstly they did right in reminding the co-host that they were infact live and people were listening watching - but the main host could have been a bit more subtle when logging off/ the host was referring to visitors rather than engaging with vistors -
- Remember the vistors came because they were invited via twitter - that's the power of twitter - it is an announcement tool - when the co-host responded to my communication the broadcaster was quick to say - oh we need to talk about the visitors off line in private - we'll do that now - then the station went off air.
- Gone, no thanks for visiting or recognition that "the visitors" were part of the broadcast - I found that a bit rude - maybe it's because I always treat the viewer as a person, i.e they are there - all I'm saying is it was odd that the co-host acknowledged the interactive vistor situation while the host chose to ignore the 36 people, "we need to speak about the on-line people here in private" - okay, don't mind me, I'm just a voyer listening in on your conversations.... oh wait a minute I though we were invited.....?
Yeah, well I guess they are new to it too - the only funny thing was I said "damn, they heard I'm crazy already..." this is after we had been dumped for their private chat about us....and the word damn was replaced by the word "censored
I added them to my ustream friends list as i have an account with them and visit the site occasionally and the guest speaker had a useful service to offer at http://www.tubemogul.com I'm still waiting for my account details - it's a service that tracks hits and stats to your videos - but i'm not going to 'big it up much' incase they have ignored me - It's also worth mashable remembering that most people are paranoid to some extent - whether it's founded or not.
- The broadcast left me paranoid that my account application at tubemogul has been ignored coz of some 'secret thing' they were saying that I don't know about - people 'a bit like me' are everywhere - a' thanks everyone' for dropping in, might have prevented that. (I am overly paranoid mind, about most things - I'm social phobic, so i doubt all 36 other people felt the way I did about it - unless it was a social phobics outing of course :P)
I might try tuning in again, or I might just focus on my own stuff, I don't like feeling dissed much.
