Mecasting (me-casting) is the act of sharing information about yourself online in a way that can be accessed either by a select group of people (friends) or the public at large. Facebook
, and MySpace
, are all examples of mecasting. As technology advances and social media tools converge, mecasting moves closer to its ultimate goal - the ability for any given individual to supply a real-time, online, on-demand broadcast of their life, as it is being lived.
