Broadcastr – Twitter and Facebook to some extent serve as a central stage of personal expression, no doubt there. But as I feel you would agree, personal expressions of ‘I dig that’ or ‘happy to be online again’ hardly count as a meaningful expression in my book. Don’t get me wrong; I admire social networks and online statuses’ concept, but it seems many users take advantage of these to share rather trivial statements that lack authentic inspiration. Broadcastr is a god-send platform for people all over the world, allowing users to create and share meaningful short stories…
These short stories span across an entire gamut of categories including Arts & Culture, Childhood, Friends, History, Nature, Sports and many others. The current beta version offers one page that has it all; a world map showing available listings realted to your chosen category; a play box for you to listen to the audio-recorded stories users have submitted; and a playlist on the left, showing the next upcoming stories.
There’s no better way to explore Broadcastr’s magic than by diving right in. I suggest listening first to the fabulous story, A City So Big Even God Can’t See Us by Tom Shillue – Select the History category and choose the very first story there. Hit play. To submit your own personal story, sign up and hit Add a Story! This is a most inspirational venue online that makes the social realm the best it can be.
