YouTube Changes: Everything You Need To Know

YouTube Changes: Everything You Need To Know | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

Aaron Biebert wrote this timely and very helpful piece on his blog 8pmWarrior about all the new changes on Youtube.

YouTube announced changes to channels that feature a news feed integrated with Google+, Twitter, and Facebook for videos shared on other platforms.

Here's an intro:

"I’m sharing from experience as a producer of several online shows and video productions that were created to build community and sell a product in a social savvy way".

Video changes the game.

Here’s why YouTube matters:

**YouTube is the #2 search engine in the world (think SEO)It is the largest video-based social network

**Google+ is now integrated even closer with YouTube for additional community building (more on the way)

**YouTube is simple to use and even offers a free video editing feature Video is perfect for the Attention Era

Lots of valuable "how-to" information here.

Aaron says:

"If you have any questions about the new YouTube upgrade, feel free to post the questions below, on the 8pm Warriors Facebook discussion forum, or on twitter @Biebert I'll do my best to answer or point you in the right direction".

How the U.S. Consumes Real-Time Entertainment Online [INFOGRAPHIC]

How the U.S. Consumes Real-Time Entertainment Online [INFOGRAPHIC] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

This was posted by Charlie White on Mashable 


"Online entertainment as an all-streaming entertainment cornucopia is rapidly approaching. You might be surprised how quickly the transition is taking place.''

When you look at this infographic from Sandvine (a company that makes devices that assist broadband providers with throttling the connections of their users, so they should know about high bandwidth usage), you’ll see how the long-heralded convergence of broadband and entertainment is almost there. It’s not all-streaming yet, but close to it.

In fact, according to Sandvine’s Global Internet Phenomena Report for Fall 2011, if you’re subscribing to broadband Internet service, 96% of you were using some sort of real-time online entertainment each month.

Beyond that, using some combination of broadband-tapping devices such as smart TVs, gaming consoles, settops, smartphones and tablets, “55% of all real-time entertainment traffic” is coming from sources other than cable or broadcast TV, says Sandvine.

****That number is only going to get bigger. Will streaming ever completely replace broadcast and cable TV?

The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012

The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012 | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |

Brian Rice wrote this piece for Business 2 Community

"What is in store for 2012? With only two months remaining until the end of the year, there is no better time than now to pause and take a look towards the future."

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

Elias Roman, CEO and co-founder of Songza

First, the easy prediction: more and more of the information we consume on a daily basis (from news to product reviews to entertainment) will come via the social media channels we have opted into and, more specifically, from the information filters we have chosen to subscribe to in those channels.

****In the short term, more information will come from more sources delivered through fewer channels.

Tony Ellison CEO from

****Social media can insert the missing human touch and allow mankind to tap into the full potential of the internet. Because of this, it is going to transform eCommerce as we know it.

Loren McDonald, VP of Industry Relations at Silverpop

The convergence of mobile, social, local and email, or “mocial,” is forcing marketers to change the way they interact with customers and prospects to ensure that they are where their customers and prospects are, all the time. In 2012 and beyond, savvy marketers will need to cross promote between all channels.
