Detailed Description

Update

Audioboo is a social networking application and web platform which allows users to upload and share audio. It functions in a similar way to Twitter, allowing users to set up a profile, upload audio content of up to ten minutes, follow other users and interact using comments or private messaging.

Audioboo believes that sound is social - but it isn't just about sharing personal messages with like-minded friends. The Audioboo community is playing a increasingly strong role in news reporting, as the recording function allows journalists and bystanders to upload reports directly from the scene, without the need for a crew. Al Jazeera has reported extensively from the midst of the recent conflicts in the Middle East, BBC London uses it for up to the minute traffic reports and news updates, while radio stations including Sky news and Absolute Radio have their own Audioboo channels. The Christian O'Connell breakfast show on Absolute Radio selects boos from listeners to play on the show, and recently ran a competition giving away festival tickets to the Audioboo user who uploaded the best cover version of a song from one of the headlining bands.

Audioboo has been used by teachers to integrate social networking into classroom teaching, by musicians showcasing their latest offering and by famous faces such as Stephen Fry to promote a project or speak directly to their fanbase.
