Katy Farina and Rachel Dukes come on the show to talk about the double-edged sword of social media combine with creative works. From Tumblr and Facebook, to meme vacuums like 9Gag and others. Citing sources really should be a no-brainer, but there are people that just vicious enough to EDIT OUT the signature, URL, and copyright information.
It’s the 6th Anniversary of The Webcomic Beacon podcast this month! In the coming weeks we will update with episodes on the Webcomic Beacon’s past and present crew’s favorite webcomics of all time! So, what we want is to hear about YOUR favorite webcomics of all time!
From people being complete jerks and outright stealing or cutting out the credit, to the people reposting it without thinking, it’s a huge problem in the social media work and the creatives world. While social media can be great for exposure, it only really works when the creative material is CREDITED and LINKED BACK TO the original source.
Ok! The last webcomic review until January 2014. A new request for submissions for review requests will be put out in mid-December. The next “trial run” will incorporate a podcast version and/or video version, in addition to the article itself. We’ll see how that works out.
Let’s try something and see if this helps both the WCBN audience as well as ourselves. The following is the intended schedule for updates for the next month.
The Webcast Beacon Network (aka the WCBN) has moved to a new server! Hopefully the transfer went well (and it appears to have), but please let us know if you find any broken links or missing content!
Welcome to the experimental, Monthly Press Release post! I don’t promise that all submitted press releases will be posted on these, but we’ll see how this will go. For now, we’ll be playing around with assorted press releases, including book releases.
