Gaming, Technology, Social Media, and Fun
In: geek2 Jul 2008
As a podcaster, I’m always looking for ways to enhance the experience for my listeners. The community not only wants to consume the content I produce, but many feel the need to contribute their thoughts and feedback. With the evolution of FriendFeed as the one stop shop for discussion surrounding the social web, it only makes sense to try to utilize it for podcasting. With the addition of FriendFeed rooms, we were given a mechanism to capture feedback surrounding our shows, giving us a convenient and powerful way to create a usable forum.
Now, things have gotten better.
FriendFeed has launched audio sharing. What is audio sharing? As with Pownce, you can share an audio file on FriendFeed, and the file is playable right on FriendFeed’s website using a flash embed. What’s also very nice, is that this feature honors RSS enclosures. So, if you are feeding your podcast RSS feed to FriendFeed, your podcasts are automatically playable right within FriendFeed! Combine this with rooms, and you instantly have an interactive forum with multimedia capabilities. Starting today, I’m going to use my Bwana.org Radio FriendFeed room as my official forum for the podcast.
The next step is video. FriendFeed, are you listening?
