A brief history of the video clip in online communities
Online content has been benefiting from the advantages of video clip upload possibilities for about two years now. Nonetheless, the phenomenon is not that young, but it’s only been about two years since it has really come to grasp the meaning and consequences of a notion rendered manifest, namely booming. The most significant inflow of video clips has been registered throughout the extent of the previous year, 2006. However, one year earlier, in 2005, the video post phenomenon was already beginning to “spread its wings” through channels such as Google.
Anything can be at the basis of the creation and uploading of a video clip as online content. From regular, daily happenings to out-of-the-ordinary events (latest news, latest gossip, and so on), people are free to choose the nature of each video post. The single rule is concerned with the preservation of the basic requirements of decency, i.e. keeping in line with policies that obstruct the posting of mature/pornographic content. And since anything can take the form of a video post, online communities are growing more and more mixed: they are adjusting to the diverse possibilities offered by each distinct video clip and its corresponding distinct theme. In point of fact, the adjustment is a matter of reciprocity: online content needs to agree with certain target audiences, while audiences select from the offer made available what suits best their interests.
Online content has been made widely available along with the development of broadband Internet resources. Since an optimal upload and optimal view of a video post is best handled by broadband access, it becomes obvious why the availability of video online content has been made possible only along with the expansion of broadband access. As a result, the popularity of the uploaded video clip has developed along the lines of the increasing popularity of broadband Internet possibilities.
The principle is fairly easy to understand: one technology improvement determined another one. The sphere of those who take advantage from such technological advances is not limited to the visitors of video upload sites. On the contrary, upload video sites are taken advantage of by those who choose to upload a certain video clip and by the website administrators as well. Everyone has a benefit from it.
Even if videos created by individuals, i.e. amateurs, swell their numbers visibly, there are still content owners (advertisers) who can either advertise a certain product/offer certain services or earn money from the simple fact that other people choose to see their videos. Such content owners are generally more professional in the creation of each video post, but this is not a mandatory requirement. If you think that your video clip deserves a pay-per-click/view approach, feel free to explore this possibility. Google Adsense is doing its best to improve this aspect of content uploading.
There is no typical video post. From videos uploaded just for entertainment (indeed, there are many such uploads surprising spontaneous moments generating amusement) to videos where people are trying to “make the news” or advertise products/services, everything is permitted (once again, pay attention to mature content policies).
What we are living now, at this very moment, is a genuine rush into a video clip pattern. It is a fashion that it is going to develop further along, as video upload sites improve the quality of their video broadcasting tools and as they offer people increasing opportunities of uploading videos from a variety of video recording tools.
There was a time when only videos filmed with top quality video cameras could be uploaded. In the meantime, it has become possible and widely available to upload videos from webcams, digital cameras and even from mobile phones equipped with cameras. The fashion is here, now and it’s going to stay with us for quite a while from now on, even if it will be subject to developments: they are the natural consequence of the actual stage in the technological advancements.
