?What are claims made from big business for the benefits of social networking sites like Seesmic? For starting or already established businesses, Seesmic is available to offer data transportation and social networking between companies. Also, in an article by BusinessWeek, Jennifer Schenker defines the availability of a "business model" as lucrative for business investors; "But what really sets Seesmic apart is its business model, which gives a whole new meaning to "building a company online." Every day since setting the company up in October, Le Meur has filmed himself talking about what he needs to do next. He posts the videos on a site, www.loic.tv, whose 5,000 viewers serve as an ad hoc advisory board. "It really is the first time an entrepreneur is using a daily video show to build a company with community on the Web" (Schenker 1).

?How could Seesmic be used from a business aspect? Seesmic can be used by businesses to exchange information in a visual way which cannot be explicated via e-mail. Also, Seesmic can be used by businesses to reenact "conference calls"(important to any business with need for fast information exchange), detailed visual explanations of graphs or other visual statistics, things that may lead to better decisions.

?How can Seesmic be used as a means of communication? Seesmic can be used as a means of communication in two instances: with video and without video.

Without video, Seesmic can be advantageous because of its fast information exchange, and its ability to be accesses by individual people, presenting the availability of tracing the information back to a source.

      Hey Zach:

      Here are my tentative responses:

      1. For starting or already established businesses, Seesmic is available to offer data transportation and social networking between companies. Also, in an article by BusinessWeek, Jennifer Schenker defines the availability of a "business model" as lucrative for business investors; "But what really sets Seesmic apart is its business model, which gives a whole new meaning to "building a company online." Every day since setting the company up in October, Le Meur has filmed himself talking about what he needs to do next. He posts the videos on a site, www.loic.tv, whose 5,000 viewers serve as an ad hoc advisory board. "It really is the first time an entrepreneur is using a daily video show to build a company with community on the Web" (Schenker 1).

      2. Seesmic operates by  allowing users to share information and experience through video sharing, which is an enterprise similar to YouTube. It lets users join video "chats" and give feedback information on started video discussions.

      3. Seesmic can be used by businesses to  exchange information in a visual way which cannot be explicated via e-mail. Also, Seesmic can be used by businesses to reenact "conference calls"(important to any business with need for fast information exchange) detailed visual explanations of graphs or other visual statistics, things that may lead to better decisions.

      4. The main uses of Seesmic are simliar to myspace and facebook, as Seesmic is esentially a social-networking website capable of exchanging information through individual profiles, profiles which explain personal information about the user and give insight into his or her inner well-being.

      5. Seesmic can be used as a means of communication in two instances: with video and without video. With video Seesmic can be very  effective by giving visual information as well as verbal. Without video Seesmic can be adventageous because of its fast information exchange and its ability to be accesses by individual people, presenting the availability of tracing the information back to a source.

      Take a look at this Zach and post what you think a good consensus of our ideas is.
