The use of audio in social media has grown steadily since the dawn of podcasting and today with platforms like Audioboo and Soundcloud enabling public engagement in projects and products it's still expanding. The panellists this month are Musician and Writer - Dan Lynch, The Podcast Guy and European Podcast Ambassador - Dave Thackeray and Podcaster Graham Holland from Liverpool Acoustic Live.
Dan Lynch, co-organiser and speaker said
"People should come along to learn more about podcasting and how it can be useful for business, marketing or just for fun. I've been very lucky that making a popular podcast has opened many doors for me over the years. My own story ties heavily into social media and SMC Liverpool makes the perfect setting to tell it."
The presentations are followed by a Panel discussion and Q&A session open to everyone for contributions, with questions being taken from twitter and via the Live Video Stream using the Hastag #SMCLiv.
