Bob Al-Greene:  "There's a science to setting up the perfect YouTube channel page. Get the lowdown on crucial elements."


1. Post a great channel trailer.

...Don't tell people what you do — show them.



3. Pick the right icon.


....select something that will look good at very small resolutions....this tiny piece of real estate is your best bet for pulling viewers to your channel page.

Become ONE: Google+ profile and YouTube channel integration, MORE coming

Become ONE:  Google+ profile and YouTube channel integration, MORE coming | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"Google announced another integration: your Google+ profile PLUS YouTube AND you can keep your channel name."


I've already done this.  It makes sense if you have the right set-up with your YouTube channels.  ~  Deb


Excerpt, from TNW:


  • You can still keep your channel name.
    
  • If you prefer to market your own personal brand, then Google is urging you to switch to the Google+ one.

   

  • If you don’t want a full name on your channel, in the coming weeks, Google+ page (as opposed to a profile) will have that as a new feature is coming “in the coming weeks.”
   

Also coming will be 

   

  • Advanced Google+ page management features that let up to 50 people manage a single Google+ page, or ...
    
  • A single person will be able to manage up to 50 Google+ pages, which will all supposedly nicely work with YouTube channels linked to Google+ pages.


Thanks to The Next Web, TNW.  Full article here.

I love to help us help each other! Unplanned and before 9 AM, Richard gives me (Deb Nystrom, Reveln) a testimonial at TEDxDetroit 2011.


This is the link to Richard's impromptu video testimonial on YouTube, the SocMediaLearnLab channel.


It was a year ago at lunch at the Detroit Institute of Arts for TEDX2010 (my first TEDx.) It seems all kinds of thing can happen over lunch!


For more about lunch magic, there are more video testimonials and stories about kicking off learning via Social Media Learning Lab and Reveln Social Business.


Visit the site and you'll see how I use Posterous for a business platform.


There's LOTS of free info pages on the major social media platforms. (Kinda like ebooks, that are so plentiful these days.)


Thanks for stopping by! If there's a specific interest in social media and business that is of interest to you, feel free to left a comment.

After all, YouTube and ScoopIt are social! ~ Deb

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube, Cultural Shifts, Big, Wide, Deep

10 Things You May Not Know About YouTube, Cultural Shifts, Big, Wide, Deep | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"Think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube ...comes vibrantly to mind. ...big, wide and deep."


Jeff Bullas makes some wonderful points about the overlooked impact of YouTube.  Aside from videos of puppies, dogs, cats & kittens, there's so much depths of how You Tube affects our "global collective consciousness."


Excerpts:


...when I think about cultural shifts enabled by social media, YouTube is the place that comes most vibrantly to mind. It’s big, wide and deep.


Mature. Eccentric. Probably not what you think it is.


YouTube has its Own Language:

Launched in 2005, YouTube has had a bit of time to mature and to find its own unique ‘language’.


This is a process all new media go through – when they are first developed, people usually put them to much the same uses as the preceding media. Like when motion pictures were first developed and people only used them to record stage shows and the like, until someone invented new methods of narrative [adapted to film.]


How we’ve grown a global collective consciousness...

Why Google+ is a long term good idea: GoogleApps - YouTube

Why Google+ is a long term good idea:  GoogleApps - YouTube | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

There are several good reasons not to pay much attention to the so-called demise of Google+, the new social media channel slated as a contender with Facebook. Yes, it's social, and so is YouTube, which Google owns and uses to reach out to a large audience (22,000) of social and tech-minded folks in this series of videos.


Google emcee's this tech leader event with Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Computer Science Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences, who talks about the first digital spreadsheets and the playful, hobbyists' spirit that found its way into enterprise IT, e.g. the Google ethos.

 

Here's the real reason that Google+ makes sense, eventually there will be powerful, artificial intelligence integration with a lot of good stuff, Google apps.   I have a Google calendar, as do several of my clients and business partners.  I have several Google email accounts, professional (branded) and personal.  I love that Gmail knows how to prioritize my load of email and 98% of the time gets it right. Many businesses are using other Google apps besides what I've listed as my go-to tools.


Bradley Horowitz (VP Product Management, Google) talks about
Google + as more than a social network.


"We aspire to build a different type of relationship with our users, creating a means for users to create who they are to return improved results and better quality of service."  


He mentions Google learning to provide value to user long term interests like kite surfing.  Google+ has plans to integrate Google docs in a Google+ circles. He says that:

  • search and maps will get better,
  •  your phone will get smarter, and 
  • Gmail will get even better.   

The video is here.


There's much more to come, and this channel is where to find out about Google integration directly from the source:  Google Apps:  "A channel for all videos about and related to Google Apps, Google's suite of communication and collaboration products for businesses, non-profit organizations, and schools."

How I got started with the easiest blogging platform ever, Posterous: SocMediaLearnLab's Channel - YouTube

How I got started with the easiest blogging platform ever, Posterous:  SocMediaLearnLab's Channel - YouTube | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

Here's how to use even your earliest video efforts and make them better. This was shot using my business partner's video camera. I have used it for teaching in two of my on-line social media classes regardless of not getting things quite right -- yet.


The most important lessons here for me were to:


1) Make it fun and educate yourself in the process,


2) Just DO it - walk past the excuses of not the right clothes, not the right time! Instead, seize the day, seize the moment.


3) Being a finisher in a world of starters... There are ALL those people out there who haven't tried, haven't done, haven't started.


You have evidence, with something like this, that you CAN get started and LAUNCH.


Here's the link to the video.


Note: This is my 2nd, business "YouTube" channel. I created it in about 30 minutes.  I have 3, including my first I use for fun.


This video was the first one I converted to play on this channel, and the second one I loaded here. It can be done!


I edited this VERY early effort to make it a little more instructional using iMovie'11

Remember to TAG your videos so they can be found easily on YouTube! You can also add annotations to your YouTube video that can be easily updated.
