If there is any remaining doubt in your mind concerning the importance of video in your online marketing, then today’s Social Solutions Show will put it to rest. Biggest news to share is that Twitter is now offering longer videos – here’s a surprise – 140 seconds in length. I guess they figured we would remember by association of their character limit.
Another topic on deck – the new Twitter app Engage (iOS and U.S. only for now) – interesting but no WOW factor. Back to video for a moment…did you know a Periscope live-streaming button is now built into the latest update for the Twitter mobile apps. Fun to see them playing nice in the sandbox. Perhaps you have something to sell? Then you’ll want to know about video digital stickering using the app iam8 – and did you know all 8TV videos are playable through SnapChat?
LinkedIn revealed their first Top Attractors list for the U.S., global, and individual countries. It’s interesting to see which are the most sought-after companies by professionals in the world right now. Do you stay up at night wondering if you should use hashtags in your Facebook posts? You’re not alone and there IS a definitive answer.
