I typically hear about the next big hit or miss from Sam Harrelson. The latest thing, which I just joined up on Sam’s recommendation, is Seesmic.
Here’s how MarketingProfs describes it…
“What do you get when you combine video, social networking, micromedia, and a very savvy French entrepreneur? You get Seesmic.
The site is a social network where the primary content is video. Users record video, post it to the site, and other users reply in video.”
The short description I’ve heard from others is that it’s sort of like a fusion of Twitter and video.
This site is currently in alpha and there are a limited number of testers playing around with it. So you can’t see the community in action unless you have a login.
But it looks pretty compelling, and I think if it gets a critical mass of users, it could be as useful or more so than Twitter (assuming you find Twitter to be useful in business – I do).
