PERSONAL BROADCASTING NEWS

 UK PODCAST AWARDS results will be announced as part of the New Media Europe Conference in Manchester.

 Podcasting was almost ‘owned’. The US podcast “patent troll’ threat seems to be resolved after a lengthy US court saga.

 There’s a lot of talk about the ‘personal broadcasting revolution’ offered by free live video-streaming tools Periscope, Meerkat and Blab.

 If you manage multiple pages for your different business or professional profiles on FB, there is now a free FB Page Manager app for iOS and Android. There IS a version for Windows 10 but it’s unofficial and the free version is useful but limited.

  

INDUSTRY INTERVIEW

He also references  this article in the UK Guardian which seemed to include the first use of the word ‘podcasting’.
