YouTube videos when shared to Twitter and Facebook quickly become part of different social activities, for instance comments, shares, tweets, likes etc.

The world came to know about this ability of YouTube videos when statistics offered by YouTube revealed that more than 100 million users of social networking websites perform the above mentioned social activities using shared YouTube videos each week.

Recently presented statistics from YouTube also suggest that more than 500 millions YouTube videos are watched through Facebook every day and on Twitter, more than 700 videos get shared in a minute.

YouTube and Vimeo – Two Great Places to Broadcast Your Videos

YouTube is owned by Google. So there’s no surprise to learn that when you sometimes go hunting for a product or service – you might find a search result with YouTube Videos in the middle of the page. This is normal. But how did that company create that video and how did they get it to rank on a page one Google search?

This is a secret that DeeGeedee Consulting will reveal to you when you use our services.

Vimeo vs. YouTube. What’s the difference?  With YouTube, you get to post your videos for free. But when people watch them, YouTube will insert another video to watch right after yours plays. They also insert commercials.

Commercials can get annoying. So are the videos that play right after yours is finished. You cannot control if YouTube plays a video that is of sexual nature, off-topic or even worse…a competitor showing off their product or service.

Vimeo is a paid service and it won’t show commercials and it won’t play other videos once yours has finished playing. At DeeGeeDee Consulting, we’ll teach you the benefits of both video platforms and how to use them effectively. Find out more by contacting us today.
