Project abstract

Video microblogging can still be considered a rather new concept but seems to becoming more and more popular. In short video microblogging can be described as posting status updates and notes through short video clips. Another way to think of video microblogging is as public SMS messages. Instead of sending a short message to a certain individual or group the messages are broadcasted out in the public and any one interested can pickup the message.

In this research project we have decided to look into short video clips for status updates. The project is based the service 12seconds.tv. This is a service that reminds a lot about the microblogging service Twitter in the sense that short video updates are uploaded as opposed to short text updates on Twitter. The overall goal of this research project is to look into how people use video for microblogging and what they use it for. A bit more background information can be foud in the Introduction.

We are currently looking for participants so if you are a 12seconds.tv user and would be willing to let us know how you use 12seconds.tv then please contact me at [email protected] and I will provide you with more detailed information.

This study is being performed at the University of California, San Diego in the The Department of Computer Science and Engineering. However participants do not need to be located in San Diego.
