YouTube Changes: Everything You Need To Know

YouTube Changes: Everything You Need To Know | Social Media Pearls |

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".
