A new type of social medium services, which e.g. makes it possible to capture live video and share it in real time to a web page, is becoming increasingly popular. Although the services are growing in numbers of users, it is still an immature application area and so is the research on this topic.

We invite you to a workshop to investigate the barriers and resources for making video interaction and sharing mobile a successful social media, through discussing topics, such as literacy, collaboration, hybridity, utility and privacy. We aim to connect researchers working with video related research to frame this interesting research field and to foster future collaboration. A concrete outcome of the workshop will be a proposal for a journal special issue on the topic of making mobile broadcasting a successful social media that the organizers will submit to appropriate venues.
