Check out Tout.

I am joining a team of 10 bloggers that are doing some intentional social-marketing at Children’s Pastors’ Conference this week. (Thanks Sam for leading this!) When we were setting all of this up, Karl Bastian (one of the 10) told us about an app called Tout. It’s kind of like Twitter, but instead of sharing text or pictures, you share short 15-second videos. In a text later that day, Karl told me it can be pretty addicting. You can Tout from your smart phone or your iPad. Then with a single click, it pushes to your Twitter and Facebook account. 

I set up my Tout account tonight and shot my first video. I’m planning on using it a lot this week at the conference. I’ll shoot more videos tomorrow and hopefully a good number at the conference. Keep up with my videos on my Tout page, my Twitter, or Facebook page.

Check out Tout and then let me know what you think.

    You will enjoy Tout – it is fast, easy, and fun – like twitter, it forces you to be intentional and to the point. And your kids will enjoy watching them later! It will be a blast at CPC. Keeping ’em interesting is the key, there are a lot of boring Touters out there, I try to keep them somewhat entertaining, I post them all to Twitter, but save the best for Facebook.
