Share vs Broadcast—is there a difference anymore? | DesignNotes by Michael Surtees

Share vs Broadcast—is there a difference anymore?

share vs broadcast

Is there really much of a difference in the context of online communication between sharing and broadcasting? They both involving talking, typically there’s an action like clicking on a link and it highlights some sort of capability of the person mentioning the said communication. I’m not suggesting it is a negative thing but I do wonder if they’re now the same thing.

    the only difference I can see is that sharing often targets a more specific audience than broadcasting. Although it's not always the case. When you share something with your friends on facebook, or via email, the audience is specifically defined. Broadcasting something on twitter means your followers (typically not defined by you) will see it and it will likely be retweeted to many other people you don't know.

    Makes sense but here’s an interesting observation that I’ve heard. Some people will follow anyone that chooses to follow them on Facebook, but when it comes to Twitter its a different story. They only follow people they know. Sure when they tweet something a lot of people that they’re not following may hear about something, but.. Okay, I’m not sure where I’m going with this but you do make a good observation.

    On twitter people don't follow only persons that they already know… btw the point you highlight is very interesting.
