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.
