The RiteTag founders invite content creators and curators to join us for a workshop
Michal Hudeček, Martin Shirley and Saul Fleischman have been designing and building RiteTag.com since early 2012, and now that we have opened the site (private beta), we would like to do a few things with our growing community of RiteTaggers:
- A tour and demonstration of what I have been getting done in RiteTag: RiteTag for topic tag discovery (and use) on ten social networks, RiteTag for learning who’s active on “your” tags – and when, and RiteTag for content curation and social media sharing
- Take Hangout attendees’ challenges on topics they need tags for, demonstrate how to find them and what can be done with what they find in RiteTag
- Discuss features that we aim to integrate in the near and distant future
- Field questions and take suggestions for what RiteTaggers want from RiteTag
- Learn from each other about things fellow RiteTaggers have been accomplishing with what they get from RiteTag
Our first Hangout on Air
“Hangout on Air:” a recorded Google+ Hangout. This one is set for July 30, 2012, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Japan Time (5:00 a.m. USA Eastern Standard Time)
The details are here, and as of this writing, a few spaces remain, so if you can make that time, please comment and I will get you on the participants list.
Due to North American demand, I will repeat the workshop on Sunday, August 5 at 4:00 a.m. Japan Time (3:00 p.m. Saturday August 4, 2012)
The link and details are here. Please note interest in the comments so I can send you an invite. At the very least, you should find it entertaining to watch me attempt to woo RiteTaggers with a top-notch presentation – just minutes out of a 3:45 a.m. rise from bed to make this event convenient for North American time zones. Please say you’ll fit us in on a Saturday afternoon?
We really do live for feedback
So what, if you can’t make either of these two Google+ events?
Talk to Saul – pretty much a lot of the time. (Except when its the middle of the night in Japan, okay?)
If you have a group of 5 to 9 people who will agree to a time to join a hangout, just hit me up in G+ by circling and then messaging or mentioning Saul Fleischman with questions, RiteTag comments, ideas, or a request for a custom workshop – on what to do with RiteTag for your own project/company/event’s needs.
Besides G+. you’ll find that I’m not in hiding; look for Saul Fleischman or osakasaul in SKYPE, Twitter, etc., and you’ll probably find that you need not send a carrier pigeon to get in touch with me. We would really like to know
- what features or functionality you would like to have in the ever-growing RiteTag
- which networks that have topic-tagging (i.e. Facebook does not have topic-tagging; Facebook actually offers absolutely no way to search FB updates by topic/keyword – at all) you would like to see intergrated into RiteTag
- what bothers you most about our current user interface
- what you see as the future of topic-tagging and tag optimization, utilization, etc.
- your stories about what you got done with one or more tags, whether RiteTag.com led you to them or not.
I will leave you with just one tiny example of what doors #tagging can open:
See my tweet, and how I simply added a ‘#‘ to the word “curation” in blog post title, as suggested by RiteTag:
Just by hashtagging “curation” got my blog post referenced (not reblogged in entirety, and with a link back to the original post on my site) on the “Kimmblog,” Scoopit’d and Tweeted.
Just by using the RiteTag tag “searchtips” in the title (RiteTag suggested this one for both Twitter and Google+), the blog post got featured in other Scoopit magazines and shared to Tumblr, G+, Facebook and Twitter. Picked up, let’s consider, by people who do not know me – but are scraping the social graph for topic tags:
