Today, many people and organizations use video to create real impact for social causes.
Meanwhile, the prevalence of video in our everyday lives is growing by the minute. A February 2013 report by Cisco indicates that video accounted for more than half of all mobile traffic for the first time in 2012. It is expected to account for two-thirds by 2017.
