1. A social broadcasting system for enabling members of a user group to synthetically broadcast select content to other members of the user group, the social broadcasting system comprising, in combination:

  • a first non-transitory computer-implementable medium and a group of medium-processing computers associated with each of the members of the user group within an operable network, the first non-transitory computer-implementable medium being implementable via the group of medium-processing computers, the first non-transitory computer-implementable medium thereby being operable to effect real-time synchronization of media content among members of the user group and to synthetically broadcast content among the group of medium-processing computers each of which are in communication with at least two content sources, the at least two content sources each being characterized by a separate legal access point thereby providing at least two legal access points for the same content, the first non-transitory computer-implementable medium being operable to (a) identify select content and direct delivery of the select content from a select optimal content resource location associated with each medium-processing computer and (b) map content resources from amongst differing legal access points without redistributing sourced content, the select optimal content resource location being selected from the at least two content sources, said selection being based on user-defined parameters, the first non-transitory computer-implementable medium further directing delivery of the select content as initiated by content origination member of the user group by (a) establishing an instruction-passing second channel to each medium-processing computer over the operable network;

    (b) generating routing and playback instructions for governing playback of the select content via a content-delivery first channel; and

    (c) passing the routing and playback instructions to each medium-processing computer via the instruction-passing second channel for sourcing the select content for consumption, the members of the user group thereby being able to simultaneously access the select content as initiated by content origination member and received from the select optimal content resource locations within the user group for the purpose of providing a content-based platform for social interaction.
