Jeremiah Owyang has a video on media snackers on his blog tonight. And he asked some of us to respond if we respect media snackers.
The video provides the definition of people my daughter’s age & how they get bits of info here & there. I noted the point that they utilize free spaces like Flickr & other storage spaces. That probably caught my attention because I’m polling our ACDSee customers as to what services they use so that we can provide uploaders to help them conveniently upload their ‘image snacking’ to their photo storage place of choice.
Since Jeremiah says he’s not concise, I definitely know that I’m not! I tend to enjoy writing. Personally I think Jeremiah does a great job of providing bite sized pieces & I need to work on that because I know that people are really busy. I know that I skim blog posts too.
What does my audience want or expect? Well, I’m hoping they’re looking for more than a snack. I prefer to put more thoughts here (bit more than a snack) and struggle with keeping it under 140 characters on Twitter. I’ve been putting short snack-like posts on our ACDSee blog though. That’s more like an appetizer with a number of entrees to choose from. We have products for home users, professionals and corporate folks.
Ok I quickly adapted this to a food analogy. Thanks Jeremiah for inviting me to add to the conversation! Now to keep the conversation going – I’m going to ask Clay Newton, David Yeo, Stan, & Connie Reece – Do you respect Media Snackers?
