Images. They draw our eye, and pull us in. Social media is being increasingly dominated by images; we would much rather look at a pretty picture than read descriptive text.
Video takes it one step further: images that move? Awesome. Demonstrations, how-tos? Fantastic.
You don’t even have to be amazing at how to shoot and edit video in order to participate with many of the new social video networks out there. You download the app, shoot the video inside the app, and upload it to the network. From there, you can share it out through your other social networks.
Get on it! Be creative and have fun–shooting video is one of my favourite things because it allows for such creativity.
