What about the live parties with chat and video from all over and guests? That’s what Jonny Goldstein brings us every Wednesday evening. Now that’s a party and half to be part of.
These two guys bring the fun and social back into social media. What makes these two interesting the most? The conversational tone and viewer involvement.
Jeff doesn’t just sit there and make faces or act goofy. Okay, he does some of that. Jeff does more though, by talking to us, about us, and he gives you the feeling of being there. Especially when he’s talking with us while filming out the front window of the truck. Cheers to Jeff.
Jonny? He’s all about the real time conversation. Not content to just act silly by himself like most of the YouTube folks out there, Jonny invites guests each week to join him at his place for a live party. And guess who else is invited? That’s right; you and I are invited along.
Jonny puts him and his guest(s) online live, and even brings in the occasional guest on another camera. Jeff Hibbard joined one time live from the truck! Now that’s what social media is all about.
Though I’ve highlighted Jeff and Jonny, they are far from the only two out there that are engaging us with their efforts. One of my other favorites for putting the social into social networks and media is Jeff Pulver, who recently brought us his Personal Social Networking Toolkit.
So what interesting and fun things have your social networks brought you? Who engages you? Share with me?
