Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram – just to name a few of the larger platforms you can now upload native video to – and they all continue to improve at rapid speeds. So let me ask again, “where do you upload your videos?”. Hopefully your answer is now “everywhere!”. Facebook Video Let’s start with the elephant in the room – Facebook.

Hashtags on YouTube?! #OhYeah Need I say more? I’m tempted to end the blog post here. But I won’t. Hashtag support has come to YouTube! In a pretty quiet update, YouTube has enabled support for hashtags within search – surfacing new and trending videos. Typically when you search on YouTube, you’re presented with results that are determined by top-secret algorithms (which usually focus on solid ratings and engagement). Searching hashtags, however, will show you a few trending videos, but will also show you newly created videos in that topic. #HUGE #WantIn? Of course you do! Whether you’re uploading a new video, or editing old ones, now’s your chance to […]
