Author:

Blogging tool Posterous (created in 2008)  introduced a new system this week called Posterous Spaces. It features more up-to date sharing and social tools.

They announced the new system on their blog saying, “Why did we create it? Simple – because we think you should be able to share online like you do in real life. That’s why you’ll find Posterous Spaces has intuitive privacy controls that make it a breeze to share with the right people, every time. ”

Here’s a video which explains Posterous Spaces.

The company also announced Posterous Spaces for the iPhone. You can have all of the functionality right in your pocket.

Other new features they’ve added include “five new professionally-designed themes, a beautiful new reading experience, 3x faster loading times, slick new profile pages and more”.

According to cnet, Posterous still isn’t making any money, but say they are doing well and are focusing on user growth instead of revenues.

5 Tips to Crowd Source Photos and Videos from Your Next Event

Author:

Aggregating photos from any well-attended event can be a huge headache – you can either hunt and peck through various photo streams or rely on post-event email attachments. Skip the hassle by setting up an Event site so your attendees can submit photos in real-time. Here are five tips to get you started:

  1. Keep it simple

    When it comes to group sharing, simplicity is king. It doesn’t get much simpler than Posterous for the iPhone. Attendees don’t need to remember a hash tag or a url. They just download the app and your event site automatically appears through the magic of geolocation.

    Because not everyone has an iPhone, you should also allow posting by email. With Posterous, it’s as simple as sending an email to youreventsitename@posterous.com.

  2. Don’t shut out virtual attendees

    Encourage those who can’t attend to sign up to receive daily summaries of all submitted posts via email. This is a great way to boost off site engagement for any event.

  3. Unleash the full Twitterati

    Want more Twitter buzz? Set up autoposting to your event’s Twitter account. You can even automatically adding a Twitter hashtag to all contributed posts. See how the BlogWorld Event site has done it.

  4. Go beyond photos

    Photos are the eye candy of the Web, but videos add depth and reveal your event’s true flavor. Encourage your audience to take video clips and submit them directly from Posterous for the iPhone or via email.

  5. Give them a slideshow

    Don’t force your audience to scroll through page after page of posts to see what has been submitted. Take advantage of the built-in slideshow feature on all Posterous event sites and display your event photos live during the event or send out as a link in a post-event email.

    Try it yourself by downloading Posterous for the iPhone and submitting a few photos to the official BlogWorld Event Site. Or just email them in to blogworld@posterous.com.

Top 5 reasons to live blog BWE with Posterous for the iPhone

Author:

1) What happens in Vegas shouldn’t stay in Vegas. Whether you’re seeing Carrot Top or Darren Rowse, it’s your duty as a blogger to share your thoughts and impressions with those poor unfortunates who couldn’t make it to BWE.

2) Break the big stories first. Sharing with the new Posterous for the iPhone app is fast. Just touch post, add any combination of text, photos and videos, and you’re ready to share. You can also add tags, share your location, or mark a post as private straight from the app.

3) Most of the fun happens after 5 pm. Capture spontaneous karaoke jam sessions as they happen, take vanity shots of yourself partying with A-listers, and then upload it all on the spot.

4) So you can sleep at night. Capture and post everything on the fly so you can pass out as soon as you get back to your hotel room instead of staying up to blog until the wee hours. Then do it all over again.

5) Post once, share everywhere. With built-in autopost support, just post once and your content is automatically shared to your Facebook and Twitter accounts, plus your pick of over 20 other sites.
