Instant Interviews Via IM (Instant Messaging)

Posted on 3.06.2007
Debonair Magazine is conducting interviews via AOL's Instant Messenger software. Seems like an easy and efficient way to get content for your website.

"Catering to a young male demographic requires a publication to maintain a hip factor, as well as a social relevancy," says Creative Director John DeFeo. "The overwhelming popularity of AOL's IM software provides Debonair with the perfect tool to engage our readers while maintaining a journalistic standard."

See a sample interview here. While the result is an informal, almost folksy exchange, it's an interesting idea and something certainly to consider if IM is your thing and used by your audience. I can see this as a great timesaver since you can just copy and paste text from the conversation and not have to spend hours transcribing interviews.
