So is social media networking ready for the big time? Maybe or not, but it's certainly ready for student journalism. Last night's Democratic Presidential debates were covered and blogged about by UNLV students, and that included the use of Utterz, a newcomer to the 2.0 game.
A quote from the Utterz site:
"Utterz is the first way you can instantly blog your experiences, thoughts and ideas, anywhere, using all the capabilities of your mobile phone. Utterz mashes together the voice, video, pictures, and text you call or send in and creates an 'Utter' that can immediately update your existing web pages on sites like Blogger, Facebook, LiveJournal, MySpace and more."
Want to blog, don't have time or tools to write but have your cell phone? You can blog with Utterz. It's as simple as calling the 712-432-Mooo (6666). Setting up an account takes minutes and then you are ready to go.
And again, back to the point here. Follow the link below to see and hear what UNLV students had to say, and I mean literally say also, about the Presidential debates.
