Curate Your Event Twitter Hashtags with Hashcaster

Curate Your Event Twitter Hashtags with Hashcaster | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Hascaster is an automatic Twitter hashtags news curation tool, capable of simplifying the process of managing a public page covering a specific hashtag and of giving dedicated tools to curate, highlight, measure and monetize the user-generated stream.

 

Key features include:

-> Manage & lead your hashtag community
-> Capture & curate tweets in real-time
-> Track your event & monetize your audience

 

From the official site: "Hashcaster is an advanced curation platform for Twitter that helps event organizers manage their hashtag community, capture valuable user generated content, measure and monetize their audience.

 

...

 

Referred to as a "Hashcast", the platform curates in real-time photos, videos and stories from the event's hash tag community as it trends on Twitter. It then pushes this content to an event branded web site."

 

Example: http://smc.hashcaster.com  

 

"The Hashcaster platform determines "who and what" is most important to the hash tag community; making highly valued content more visible and helping the community connect with top influencers."

 

Example: http://psw.hashcaster.com/home ;

P.S.: The only question is: how does one get an account on Hascaster. The site seems not to provide any info on this. Can anyone help?

Good Morning Robin,
I read your last question.
I posted about Hashcaster in September 2011, http://bit.ly/orNuYc
From original article that I curated http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/real-world-events-go-real-time-on-hashcaster-a-web-and-mobile-twitter-curation-platform-for-event-organizers-and-marketers-129410203.html I read this:
"Hashcaster is presently beta testing the Hashcaster platform with a select group of premiere events throughout the U.S. If you would like your event to be considered for our beta program please contact Geoff Clendenning at..."

Then, maybe, the service is still in beta after these nine months.

Good morning Giuseppe! Evidently you have done a much better job than mine in research and verifying this info as I was not aware of the original launch. Re your point about their Beta program, it may very well be. You only need to write to them to find out.

Hello Robin,
it is always a pleasure to have with you a mutual comparison to improve our user experience.

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers | Social on the GO!!! | Scoop.it

A simple guide to understanding how to effectively use Twitter hashtags in marketing and how you shouldn't! [note mg]

 

Every time we host live webinars (and as this long list suggests, that is quite often), quite a few attendees get confused about what to do with the hashtag we provide. What is it? What does it do? How do you create one? Let me explain!

 

What is a hashtag?

 

A Twitter hashtag is simply a keyword phrase, spelled out without spaces, with a pound sign (#) in front of it. For example, #inboundchat and #ILoveChocolate are both hashtags.

 

What does a hashtag do?

 

A Twitter hashtag ties the conversations of different users into one stream, which you can find by searching the hastag in Twitter Search or by using a third-party monitoring tool such as HootSuite.

I need to learn more about hashtags and twitter. This should help out a bit more. I'm learning to use a few. Thank you.

It's my pleasure Angel! Using Hashtags is finally simple, which is sometimes difficult is to remember to include them in posts ... :)
