    • The Good & Bad about #Hashtags• #hashtags are a user driven experience.• A community tends to spontaneously form around a #hashtag.• For event organizers, managing a trending #hashtag is very challenging.• For the user, keeping up with a trending #hashtag is like drinking from a fire hose.

    • How Hashcaster Works Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Hashcaster does three things…1. Curate the Twitter stream. – Capture a stream of tweets: hashtags, keywords or lists. – Sort & catalog stories, photos & videos.2. Apply analytics. – Analyze the Twitter stream: proprietary algorithms – Figure out who and what is important. – Measure how people behave and interact at your event.3. Filter behavior. – Filter the Twitter stream for specific behaviors by members of your community. – Respond with specific actions to this behavior. Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Moderation• All content captured by Hashcaster is filtered and cued for moderation.• Moderation tools provide the following capabilities: – Filter for profanity & SPAM – Block users – Favorite users Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Tweeted Notifications• The Hashcaster system automatically tweets out notification on the event hashtag using the organizer’s Twitter handle when: 1. #event hashcast update http://hashca.st/9z41m new contributions from: @xxxx @xxxx 2. #event top influencers on hashcaster http://hashca.st/9z41m @xxxx @xxxx• The frequency of each update will vary dependent upon the amount of traffic on the event hashtag.• Notifications have a strong social networking effect on the hashtag community. Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Live Updates• The organizer can provide one or more users with a special hashtag they can use to elevate the priority of a specific tweets.• These tweets are then displayed in real-time in a designated section of the hashcast site, mobile app and wall display.• Organizers can communicate important messages to their audience without being lost in a busy hashtag. Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Real-time Advertising• Advertisers can be provided with a special hashtag to designate which of their tweets are sponsored or promoted tweets.• These promoted tweets are then displayed in a high profile area of the hashcast site, mobile app and wall display.• Advertisers can use these tweets to drive traffic to their booth and to online resources. Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Measurement• Hashcaster is the first platform that allows an event organizer to quantifiably measure their event.• Hashcaster generates two streams of data for analysis: 1. Twitter data 2. Hashcaster data Copyright Geoff Clendenning, 2012
    • Community Building• Each Hashcaster site is archived on the web after the event; this provides the organizer with an ongoing community retention and event promotion tool.• The Hashcaster site is SEO optimized to rank well in Google and other search engines.• Members of the #hashtag community can continue to engage content on the site, driving new follows, RTs & replys.• Event organizers can drive traffic from their Hashcaster site to a registration page for their next event.
