Blogging from within Joost

Posted on July 16, 2007. Filed under: blogging in joost, Joost, Joost Update, Uncategorized |

This entry is a test to see if the blogging tool within Joost is functional.

Earlier today I tried to use Joost and it crashed four times. I reinstalled the latest version and noticed this new service.

If this does actually work, it is a smart way for Joost to assist bloggers (supporters and critics) who are reviewing their updates. I can watch Joost programs and blog about them in real time… If it works.

So, it worked. The first changes I feel Joost should make to their blogging module is to provide the option to add tags, because the default is “uncategorized”.

I see this blogging option being beneficial to more than just Joost… Besides making it easier for Joost to get free promo through bloggers, anyone who wishes to review, document, or expand on any content within Joost now has the option to do so in real time.

If Joost ever gets into the live streaming business, anyone in the world could liveblog a conference regardless of whether they were actually there in person – as long as they could watch and blog within Joost.


UPDATE: The “blog this” option has been available since May, thanks in part to a beta tester’s suggestion:

A quick ‘Blog about this show’ button
A quick ‘Blog about this show’ and a ‘Read blogs about this show’ button would be pretty neat. So people can easily write about shows.

I didn’t even know you could blog from within Joost. I have to try that.

I read about Joost in PC World mag a few week ago and signed up, sort of. I recieved the link to confirm my email etc. right away. I have not been able to get an invitation with a password. Is there any way you can help me with this?

Would someone please refer me so that I can join BOOST. Apparently a referral is required to join. Unfortunately the rest of this country is so far behind I cannot find anyone to refer me.
Thanks in advance.

[…] I haven’t written an update on Joost since July, mostly because that was the last time I noticed anything interesting that wasn’t just another “we added another channel!” update. Last week I decided […]
