Evolution of Personal Broadcasting

Personal broadcasting started with the plain vanilla text only blogs. These blogs were used either as a tool for personnel expression or for the express purpose of some commercial gain as in the case of CRM, Corporate blogs, Branding and Product Promotion.

Then came audio podcasts. Also photo blogging took off. Now with the avilability of cheap video and audio recording converged devices people have takem to Video Blogging or VLogging or Vodcasting as it is commonly called. This is also the age of User Created Content.

Podcasting and Vodcasting is also being used by various universities to deliver educational material to the student community through sites like i-tunes as the students already have the devices namely I-Pods to access these casts.

Well, the digital future is here, but for the divide.
