Social Media 101- Podcasts

This discussion of podcasts is the most recent in a series of articles dealing with the basic building blocks of social media. Our goal is to apply the tools of social media to enhance the Christian experience, as well as to apply the Christian experience to enhance social media.

The term “podcasting” combines “broadcasting” with “iPod.” Podcasts refer to the posting of digital audio content onto a web site; these files are downloadable to an MP3 player or one’s computer. Video podcast (sometimes shortened to vodcast) is a term used for the online delivery of video on demand via Atom or RSS enclosures. The term is used to distinguish between podcasts which most commonly contain audio files and those referring to the distribution of video. Users typically subscribe to podcasts or vodcasts, allowing users to access the content at their convenience. For more information on podcasting check out this video by Jason Rhode of NIU:

Popular podcasting directories can be found at http://www.podcastalley.com/  and http://www.podcastdirectory.com/format/Christian . For a directory of vodcasts go to http://www.vodcasts.tv/ .

Until next time, remember, you can do all things through Christ Jesus!

God Bless,

Kenneth Lillard
