Podcasting...a new form of social media that iTunes came up with. To be completely honest, I don't really know of many people who use podcasts. The advantage of them is that there are so many different genres of them such as learning a new language, news stories, or sports updates. In high school, a few friends and myself created a new podcasting group. We recorded interviews with faculty and students regarding upcoming events such as athletic games or theater shows. We also incorporated top music hits of the week, advertisements for other events and clubs, and some comedic skits. It was a lot of fun to record, however, not a lot of people listened to it. Most people are occupied with homework and other curricular that they don't have time to listen to it. Not only that, but not a lot of people plug in their iPods every single night to update it. I know I don't.
