Do I have a Facebook page? Of course I do and I log into it but not as much as I did in the past. I'm actually a fan of Facebook and I think they are trying to take a leadership position in aggregating all of your social media. Do I have a MySpace page? Yes, but I only log in on a rare occasion and as some of you readers know, I'm definitely not a fan. Twitter? Yes I do make tweets and actually enjoy reading what other folks are doing. Friendfeed? Yes, but other than help to provide aggregated feeds I'm not sure why I should visit it. To be fair, I tried using it before my Dad died, but ever since then I haven't given it much time. YouTube yes of course but I don't post a ton of videos.
That's a lot of social networking and without a playbook it is hard to figure out where to spend your time. Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube are my favorites but then I got this great new cell phone and I sure would like to use it for making posts. Sure I can post to twitter but then getting all of those tweets on your phone is enough to make your friends think you are perverted with all of the vibrations going off in your front pocket. So enter Zannel.
Zannel is basically like Twitter on steroids. It is integrated with Twitter so your posts to Zannel can also appear as tweets (that of course feeds into Friendfeed and then to Facebook). However, the best part of Zannel is the crisp clean videos and photos you can post from your cell phone. All you do is take your video-picture, email it to your Zannel account, add some text to the body of the email and wham instant Zannel post in one minute or less.
As you can see from my posts I'm just testing it out, but I do need to spend some time figuring out my new phone and how the camera works. I'm planning on broadcasting from the Republican National Convention starting on Sunday when I fly out to be part of the NJ delegation team. You want to see what it looks like behind the scenes? You got it. Just follow either on this blog (widget on right hand side) or on my Zannel channel.
Zannel will make you pull out your cell phone manual to figure out how your camera phone actually works.
