Attention all Ustreamers,
We have new toys for you to play with! In addition to making a few site improvements, today we rolled out a brand new feature: Event Scheduling!
Ustreamers can now schedule a broadcasting Event for a specific date and time. Once an Event is scheduled, the Event will appear on the Ustreamer’s show page, where interested viewers will be able to click “Follow” to start receiving notifications about the event. Event Followers will be sent reminders of upcoming Events via email and the Ustream message box, in addition to being notified if the Event is rescheduled or canceled. Pretty cool. Now, you’ll never miss out on another live broadcast again!
In addition to the new Event Scheduling feature, we’ve updated and improved a few other features:
NEW SHARING AND EMBEDDING TOOL!
The new Sharing and Embedding Tool is a sleeker, simpler, and more STREAM-lined (get it?) version of the previous one.
In addition to being able to easily email and embed Ustream shows, Ustreamers can now quickly Digg, Twitter, and Stumbleupon interesting shows with a single click.
