Hi Jenny - can you ask five people, strangers, friends - anyone, what they think user generated content means and do they use/ work with it? Keep a note of what they say or you can blog it - up to you.
Hey Liz: I have asked four people and I am waiting for their response. In mean time, my partner Dave's feels that 'user generated content' is mainly more substantial videos and photographs that you may upload onto Flickr or YouTube. For his business Burgtec, he uploads a lot of videos and photographs he has taken of downhill mountain bike racing (his business makes downhill mountain bike parts!), mainly uploading to Flickr, his website and Facebook, as well as linking through Twitter.
