The impact of the global consumption of digital entertainment and information has forever changed the human fabric of our world.
Social networking is no longer simply about making friends online. Sites like Myspace, Facebook, and Youtube have become platforms for consumers to find unique entertainment and information resources.
The latest trend in social networking sites is the Live Video Social Network. Part YouTube, part Myspace, the idea behind these sites is to provide their users with social networking on a flash based media site. These sites emphasize live streaming of unique content.
The popularity of programming on these sites is based solely on the discretion of the site users. Social networkers have the choice to tune into thousands of live streams at any given time and to make their choices with a simple click of the mouse.
On Sunday November 25th, The Bald Truth Radio program, the official broadcast of The American Hair Loss Association, broke new ground for hair loss sufferers by becoming one of Stickam.com’s most popular daily broadcasts. Topping out at 22,931 viewers during the show’s two hour live videocast, The Bald Truth resonated with young hair loss sufferers across the globe.
The Bald Truth airs from CBS Radio in Los Angeles and is considered the country’s foremost weekly on-air support group. The program provides hair loss sufferers with a safe place to learn about effective hair loss products and treatments, hair transplant surgery, and to openly share their thoughts, humor, hope and strength with others struggling with this silent epidemic.
How hair loss affects the lives of those it afflicts is rarely discussed openly in our society. Providing listeners and viewers with a safe place to learn and to share their experiences is what The Bald Truth has always been about. It’s no wonder the young world of social networking has embraced it.
