Video Integration in Social Media

Although I have only been working in Cisco Social Media for several months, I have discovered much about its impact and the strategies for leveraging it at both the corporate and personal level.

With the growing popularity of video services such as YouTube, Vine, and Instagram, it was only a matter of time before video content became a standard for all social media channels. Users want content delivered to them in the easiest, most effective manner that maximizes their time and capitalizes upon their interests. A video is often a great way to do this, but how it should be implemented is pivotal to it being successful in garnering attention.

Fortunately there are numerous mediums available today that allow for delivering video content specific to your needs, and the needs of your audience. But before choosing which of these to use, the user must consider the attention span of their audience, who their audience is, and what the learning goals are (if any). Vine, Instagram, and YouTube, are three different video hosting sites that integrate with all forms of social media, and all have different uses, advantages, and disadvantages.
