Part of the richness of going live is being able to tell the people
who care about you what’s currently capturing your interest. As
everyone discovers new ways of connecting on the web, and we’re
excited to announce today the newest, groundbreaking innovation on the
real-time web: aggregation of multiple social networks in one click
through a new feature called Social Stream. This first-of-its kind
interactive tool activates and integrates audiences across Twitter,
Facebook, MySpace and AOL Instant Messenger – all taking place
simultaneously around live shared video experiences. This feature
provides users to go viral on the web – and takes the concept to a
whole new level.
This feature allows Ustreamers to update their fans, friends and
colleagues across multiple communities around live moments taking
place on Ustream in a single feed—something that has never been done
before. Every comment updates a user’s status on that social network
and includes a link to the live video for others to join and watch.
Social Stream allows four major networks to come together on Ustream:
providing interaction in one cohesive chat, updates in users’
networks, and allowing friends, family and followers to know what they
The new Social Stream will be available across the entire Ustream site within the next few
days. We welcome your feedback on this.
